having the Genders, privilege guilt, social alienation, art lyfe, being lonely, love (too little or too much), untreated illnesses both mental and physical, This Shithole Economy, This Bullshit Country, and tragic stories about animals (and some people) we tried to help and couldn’t.
reading this stuff gives you a very very strong impression of our generational character (acutely sensitive, empathic to the point of pain, poor, unemployed, strongly opposed to gender structures and all kinds of oppression, incredibly creative, depressed, and desperate for connection) and for that reason alone, even if i wasn;t doing this for any other purpose, i think this project is valuable, and it’s value of a sort that has nothing to do with me or my drawings. i think i can use the word “zeitgeist” unironically, here (but i won’t). and the words “yearning”, and “longing”, and “tragedy”.
i guess i just thought it was worth mentioning that the most interesting thing about seeing 300+ “problems” in a singular format, mostly from anonymous people, is how little they differ from one another.
