In this journal, I want to display appreciation to artists who draw self-insert art. Why do I praise this certain kind of art you may ask?
Well, for a couple of reasons.
Self-insert is expression. It shows that our love for the fandoms and how much we want to appreciate the characters we have fallen for.
Self-insert is comfort. Sometimes, in life, drawing yourself in the arms of a favorite character boosts up a cheer and makes the artist feel better because it only applies to them.
Self-insert is an escape. When we want to handle something right now in the real world, our imagination can take us away, even for a little bit, before we're ready to face life.
I for one have been writing and drawing for 7 years of self-insert and I plan to keep going for my fandoms. I hope that whoever feels the need to express their fandoms in expression, comfort, or escape should continue to do so. And nobody should EVER judge, because many of us share that same fandoms.
So, if you have any artwork of such of these, I'll be gladly to display them on my page with your permission of course. Send me a link of your artwork (choose one that you're most proud of), and I will display.
There is no shame in self-insert art. I've come to believe that.
