“Rumination: voices in my head”. Drawing on paper. . This was one of the first drawings I made in hospital, after I was admitted in 2018 with depression and anxiety. . Nurses took away anything I could hurt myself with – iPhone cable, medication, razors – but they didn't take away my pen and sketchbook, or the negative self-talk. . I drew this to capture a sense of the insistence of the repetitive thoughts, churning in my head. . I am offering 8” x 12” prints of this image, with 50% of profits to womanstrust during May (Mental Health Awareness Week). DM me if you are interested. . If you are feeling depressed, anxious, or at rock bottom - talk to somebody. Get those thoughts out of your head and let some sun shine on them. . . . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #depression #anxiety #therapy #arttherapy #artforsale #sketch #sketching #drawing #ink #artistsoninstagram #instaart #artistsofinstagram</a></p> <p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;">A post shared by <a href="https://www.instagram.com/jpflintoff/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; line-height:17px;" target="_blank"> John-Paul Flintoff</a> (jpflintoff) on
