august 15th isn't my birthday

it's a date i chose when i was younger because i was scared of the big, unfathomable internet getting its grubby hands on my actual birth-date.

but thanks for the wishes anyways

i will store them in my psyche for my actual birth-date, uncover them, and feel a warm, fuzzy, remembered feeling of some sort.

august 15th is tessek's birthday though

here is a tumblr post documenting his growth:…

what a proud mama i am

Seeker of Masks by WillowEscapee
Seeker of Masks
things haven't been too awesome on my front. all my motivation to do my actual work has been drained because my self-worth has sank to a new low. i'm trying to get myself out of it this time. i don't want to keep relying on frivolities, or validation from men, or any of that garbage.
I need to be self-reliant, but i need to get my work done and stop taking sidetrack relaxation paths or therapeutically drawing myself out of a slump.
i can't focus and i feel terrible. i need to be around people with motivation who will push me to do my best, but i can't find them. it's just me. 
it's just me, and i want it to be just me, but i also don't want it to be just me.

anyways here is void and the kiwitaur, i haven't made a nice painted portrait of them yet and i really needed to get one out there
i don't know
to make myself feel better maybe

sorry i'm not a fun-time party right now i really need to do a lot of math and i'd much rather stick my hand in a blender

there's a word for extra mechanical arms by WillowEscapee
there's a word for extra mechanical arms
but i can't remember what it was

this is mostly a life update post since i've been dead

classes are really hard. i might be legitimately failing. which is bad.

i am like sick 200% of the time

but i went on a date with a grad student today. i don't know why i only ever seem to date grad students. 
he builds robots. the date was to his lab. it was nice.

in his lab was a shopping cart modified to go over 40 mph

all his friends are really into mechanical limbs it's really solid

so i wanted to make a mech design even though i know jack shit about meche

so like

my life is pretty good aside from like. failing.

(WIP) Make Me Better by WillowEscapee
(WIP) Make Me Better
i'm posting this as a WIP to force me to get it done lol

I just got back from a decemberists literally two hours ago and then immediately drew this
i really pulled back to my weird 8th grade habit of visualizing my issues as symbols and then combining them
i'll feel a little better when this has color and has all the pieces together

it's really just what i've been experiencing in college this last month, all the emotions and the dark secrets that are being passed on to me. wars that are being started because lips can't be kept shut. chains that are broken by acknowledging flaws. etc.

i'm sleepy goodnight

song inspo…
Heaviness of Truth by WillowEscapee
Heaviness of Truth
based off of a dream that i had in london about a month ago now. when i woke up, it felt like someone had performed a hard reset on my emotions, i couldn't feel anything but numb. i wish i could have had that hard reset this morning. it's been awful. i keep lying to myself about how i feel and i keep clinging on to people with a dependency i never learned to shake.

it hasn't been great as of late. i'm working on it but it's rough and stuff.

The Drifting Game by WillowEscapee
The Drifting Game
I was tagged to do this a while ago and finally got around to it because my dry eyes want to crawl out of my skull

I'd talk about this piece more and list song inspos but i'm just ok with it. The challenge is to draw with solely a pen and no preplanning.

Though, i think if i planned this beforehand, i might be tempted to get it tattooed on my back hng
