Needles on my brain dyslexia art

I made this art when I was in the deepest, saddest part of my high school career.

I was drained and let down with grades — that’s why I drew all the letters. The academic world seemed dark and like needles in my mind. I had breakdowns when I tried to take tests.

Don’t get me wrong. There were a lot of good people and things in my high school. But this artwork isn’t about them — it’s about how I felt.
