Maeril  ✏️ Illustrator | Comics full of 💓 🙋🏻 @maesaidhi 🎨 @artbymaeril 😴 Shop status: CLOSED

I’m fine at the moment! 🙏🏼
How are you? Is life treating you well? (Skipping inktober this year! Sorryyy)

(🙌🏼 Second one in full on Twitter!) When two very caring people date... well... you end up with that. It’s a mess 😂 #NOYOU
🙋🏻‍♀️
Hi y’all! It’s sure been a while. I hope you’re all doing great, or at least feeling content. I also hope you’ve been taking care of yourself. You might not have seen it so I’m going to repeat it here: I’m changing career paths completely to go into IT.
It’s a very exciting new chapter of my life that I’m starting soon, and because of that I’ve taken the liberty to change my artistic focus a little bit! That is, sharing not only hopeful stuff... but sometimes funny, important stuff too! 🤷🏻‍♀️
As you might’ve guessed it, I will not be back fully, at least not for the next few years as I am going to be studying full-time. But I will still do my best to come back from time to time, bringing your news and taking some from you too ☺️ 🙆🏻‍♀️ I love you all very much, I guess you already know that, but I like to remind you of it. I truly, deeply thank you for your support and love over the past years, you guys have kept me afloat such numerous times it’s absolutely mind blowing and I will never be able to pay you back as much as I’d like to. You are a very special audience: you are uniquely caring, thoughtful, you help one another and lift each other up. 🤝
I am thus very proud of this community we’ve built together, and my hope is that it will continue on spreading love and positivity as long as possible.
I will talk to you ASAP, in the meantime, take care, and enjoy the fall vibes, hot chocolates and fluffy sweaters that are coming our way! ☕️🍂🌄 All my love,
Mae ✨

How have you all been? I’m working very hard on several things atm: packaging and sending orders with a ton of love n luck, developing my graphic novel, and also re-learning HTML so I can then move on to JavaScript... phew!
I’m also preparing my blue belt in taekwondo, and I’ve been going to the gym to enhance my body muscle mass! Gosh it’s hard. But I’m getting there!

I apologize for the lack of stories. I truly am always writing/rewriting stuff but don’t want to give you half-assed content... I hope you understand !

That’s all for now !
Do watch out for the time if you want to purchase pins on the shop this weekend. I don’t know when I’ll open it next time 🤭
Take care 💗

I’m so happy to finally be able to share this new collection with you all! When I launched the first one, most of your weren’t there yet, and I received many messages asking me where they could get the pins... but it was sold out already 😭
This one is about femininity, witches, and the right to be left alone (that’s for « Shut Up » and « No », which I created thinking of street harassment and catcallers!)
I hope you will like them! 💗 Please let me know what you think ☺️

Positive short #1: You Got This ! 💕

Sometimes it’s all it takes to keep on going: getting grounded by the simple fact that you /know/ you will manage this in the end. This is what I tried to convey in this short comic. Hope you like it!
I’ve taken your feedback into account and will be sharing shorts like this one in between my stories now! ☺️

“Crater” - Part III 🌕

Here is the final part. Here is what I wanted to share with you all. I know it sounds cheesy, naive and/or stupid, but there really isn’t any other way to put it: the only thing that will save us from pain isn’t hate (and thus, more pain), it’s love. Any love, every type of love is a step towards feeling better. It can be self-love, it can be platonic love, it can be loving your pets, fictional characters (the kids in BNHA give me life), as long as it makes you feel love, it’s valid !! You are not alone in this, you never were and will never be. Many people deeply know how you feel. You are worthy of getting better, and it will happen. Don’t blame yourself for taking tiny baby steps, and sometimes a few steps back. You WILL get there. I love you so much and you are so so important. Please, never forget how important it is for everyone and everything that the sun shines down on you, too. 💗

Second part of this very important comic. If you knew the drama this caused behind closed doors when I posted the first part 😂 a lot of my relatives took it personally, when in fact it’s supposed to be a very universal comic. Oh well, it can’t be helped I guess.
I hope it will speak to you as much as part I did! The final part is coming soon.
Much love to you! 💗

First part of a difficult but necessary comic. I’ve finished writing the synopsis for this comic a little while ago and finally got around to drawing the whole thing these last days. It’s about my relationship to abuse and violence and the impact it had on me!
Please remember this is only my POV and not some universal truth on how to handle an abusive past. ☺️
I hope reading the whole thing will be a good experience for you! Lots of love. 💖

Hi all. 💗
I’m undergoing refractive eye surgery next Friday (23th), and that means no screens for a little while. I wanted to share that with you before.
You might’ve seen it but I was in New York City not so long ago, for work; and this travel kind of opened my eyes (lol) on what was holding me back. Now that I realize what’s wrong, many things are pouring out and it’s quite painful. I still think that every single one of my experiences can be useful to others so, that’s the reason I’m sharing this. There is no good ending this time because I still don’t know where all of this is leading me, although I believe that I will, in the near future, be able to provide you with an answer. In the meantime, please accept this token of absolute truthfulness from me.
Unfortunately I’m a bruised up kid and this is not 10% of the shit that went down through my childhood, but it’s one of the reasons I am absolutely incapable of believing any compliment I’m given. I actually feel quite sorry for myself, I mean seriously? Not even one? That’s kind of pathetic. 😅
I try really hard to work on that ever since I’ve realized it, and it’s going to be a long and tough road, but yeah, my brain immediately makes me go through these thoughts when someone compliments me. I just can’t believe it.
I’m going to walk down my path, no matter how hard it is: please keep up on yours too, so we can meet when we’re out of the woods.

And, to the people who did this to me: I understand things in your own past made you feel such an unbearable pain, you just had to find a culprit. And I was in reach. I don’t hate you. I still love you, and I never pretended to. I never plotted against you. I just simply, genuinely loved you and I’m sorry if I didn’t sound real enough when I told you, times and times again. I hope you’ve been taking care of yourself. 💝

Something about sleep 😴 (You can tip me for free on utip.io/maeril if you liked this comic!)
When I was around 7, I had severe insomnia for days (because of bullying, yay 😑) and it made me frightened of not being able to fall asleep for a while. This eventually solved itself as I grew older but I still sometimes struggle to put my everyday issues aside in order to get some rest!
I’ve been using this thinking method for years now, and pondering it has really helped me ☺️ I hope it will help you, too! 💖 No matter what, remember « It’s not nearly as bad as you think it is ». So take your time and indulge in leaving the world behind for a few hours 💗💤

Don’t fear the corner!! 🗺
Something about the anxiety that change can bring.
Every time I’m about to face some big changes, I dream of the apocalypse 😱 I’ve looked it up and it’s perfectly normal: it means my « inner landscape » is destroying to rebuild itself accordingly, to fit my new goals! In the meantime, the anxiety it generates can be very worrisome, but try to remind yourself regularly that this is all a process: you will get there, and you will be fine!! Enjoy the journey, and trust yourself during the turns ☺️💗
