Hello my name is Marky.

I broadcast my artwork live on Twitch.tv’s creative channel. I have been streaming for over a year, but I have been an artist for most of my life.

My life story is long, complicated, and has had a run of bad luck recently. A very nasty breakup ruined my finances, and lead to a mental breakdown. Because of this, I had to move in with my parents in order to survive. A month into my new living arrangement, my dad was diagnosed with Oesophageal (Gullet) cancer. This rapidly spread to the rest of his body, causing additional health issues. Unfortunately, caring for him became a full time job that my mother couldn’t handle by herself. I had to quit my job to help both of them.

In this free time, I started drawing again to help ease the stress. As I drew more, I gained the confidence to stream my artwork on Twitch. The artwork and the interaction on Twitch went a long way to help my depression. Finally, some relief was in sight.

Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse. After a year of his diagnosis, my father passed away. At the funeral, I was so overwhelmed with emotions that it cause a second mental breakdown. This one was worse than the first, and lead to severe side effects. These include loosing time (anywhere between 1 to 10 hours at a time ), longer periods of depression, extreme anxiety, dissociation, and schizophrenia symptoms.

My physician has put me on permanent leave from work because of these issues. I cannot have a normal job, but I still need to make money in order to live and care for my mother. Drawing is my passion, and I want it to be my job, so I can feel normal again. Every little bit helps, and I appreciate any help that comes my way.
