In today's spotlight: EylianaStudio!



Submitted an illustration for Depression anthology

Tell us something about yourself!

I go online by the handle of Eyliana and currently reside in the Netherlands. I work full-time as an engineer, and do art on the side. I work with traditional media, mostly watercolors and oils.

What do you normally draw?

I do nature themes that I combine with fantasy elements and female characters. I'm currently working on an illustration project where I embed dragons in various landscapes.

What got you interested in working with the Depression anthology?

I think a lot of people, especially young people, struggle with depression, but most of the time it doesn't get recognized or gets just ignored. I think it is important to raise awareness for these issues so more people dare to talk about it and can get help.

Tell us a little bit about your work for the anthology!

My piece is about the feeling of being lost, of not knowing where to go and what steps to take next. It depicts the fear and the uncertainty that is felt during depression.

That’s all really cool! Where can we find you?

Applications for II: Depression are now open!

Hello there!

So after many weeks of work and thinking things over, we’ve laid down the ground work for Invisible Illness: Depression.

We’ve created a Google Document with all the information you need to participate as an artist or writer for Invisible Illness: Depression. Please click here to read all the terms and conditions involved.

To quickly summarise:

  • There is no particular style, quality or experience required to be chosen. Anyone can apply!

  • We accept “anything printable” - art and writing!

  • We’ll be accepting submissions from today (May 5th 2019) until June 24th 2019. Under certain conditions, submitting old work (not specifically created for this anthology) is acceptable.

  • Payment will be in form of a free copy of the book, with reprinting rights, plus anything we possibly receive by over-funding via Kickstarter.

Please read through the Google Document carefully before sending in your submissions, or emailing us for further questions. You’re also more than welcome to join our Discord server, open to the public for the first time.

Looking forward to seeing your work,
Memo and Sofie

2nd anthology topic has been chosen!

Hello everyone!

Thank you to all for voting on the topic for volume 2 of Invisible Illness. We allowed everyone to vote based on topics suggested by our backers for two weeks, and we got over 100 votes!

The winning topic with over 40% of all votes was Depression.

So our next anthology will be called Invisible Illness: Depression!

Artist and writer applications are estimated to open late April or early May, and we will be also posting our guidelines for applying then. So keep an eye out!

Remember, the Invisible Illness brand is not about any specific style or skill level. More important than style or skill is conveyance of your message! We are also more interested in having colourful and varied representation behind each piece - to work with us, it is to your benefit to be from a minority group or an obscurer-than-the-US -country. But more on this and other details next month!

Thank you for the continued interest in our project!

Kind regards,
