If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit.

Xulia Vicente is a Fine Arts student based near Valencia, Spain. Her works are animated and whimsical, bringing some nostalgia to mind.
Lately I’ve been dealing with pressure and fear of failure, as I’m starting bigger projects and things seem to get more serious. I have a lot of insecurities, questioning if the stuff is good enough, if I’m putting enough effort, if that’ll print well, if this blue should be darker…In the end the worst about it [is] the time it makes me lose, because works eventually come out when I stop worrying.
