In July 2011, I started a blog called Better, Drawn:
Better, drawn is a place for people to share stories about long-term mental and physical illnesses, told in the form of short comics. The site is a way for people to write and draw about their experiences that might otherwise be difficult to talk about openly. In fact, we think that sometimes things can be said better when they’re drawn.
Submissions are open to anyone with experience of long-term mental or physical illness to share - whether or not you see yourself as a comic artist. So, if you have experience with these kinds of health issues, or if you are close to someone who does, then you might like to consider submitting a comic for the site.
The site has slowed down of late, and that’s entirely down to me being preoccupied with other projects. I’d like to remedy that. Recent events have reminded me that it can be really important to have a variety of avenues for people to talk about what they’re going through, or what they’ve been through. I hope Better, Drawn might one day be one of those avenues.
What do we need?
To work, the site needs more submissions: more comics, more drawings, more stories. For that to happen I need to tell more people.
What can you do?
If you think this is a venture that is worthwhile, please consider helping spread the word. You could reblog this post, tweet about the site, talk about us on Facebook, or tell your friends in the real world.
If you feel you may have a story you’d like to share, please do submit a comic, a drawing or a story. Full information can be found on out submissions page.
