ABOUT THE COVER ARTIST
We are delighted to feature the work of Ethar Hamid on the cover of Issue 8. Ethar will have additional work publishing in Issue 8.
Ethar Hamid is an (almost) 22 year old aspiring writer and artist living with major depression, OCD, and anxiety (as per her current diagnoses). Her mental illnesses inspire the creative writing and art she attempts to create. She dreams that her work will reach other sufferers of mental illness and lift some of the load on their shoulders (like loneliness, despair, and sadness). Ethar is Sudanese-American, and is a creative writing student pursuing her undergraduate degree.
