the girl

hello. edited Aug 2017.


There’s nothing I can’t do unless I’m beaten to a pulp by relapse. Depression bounces back like you would want an athlete to bounce back after a devastating defeat. Its persistence can be siriusly overwhelming.

If you suffer from depression, your struggles are real and I completely understand on a personal level.

Hi, I’m Vela June— Philomena Anne / June of Junesketches— and this is a blog detailing the difficulties of my struggles. That sounds funny, doesn’t it? Isn’t struggle a synonym for difficulty? It’s convoluted because depression isn’t easily understood. Certain aspects have to be explained and explained again. And this is why the journey takes a lifetime.

It’s been a long and difficult adventure that I’m determined to see through to the end.

I often fancy myself as an illustrator/ freelance artist. The art I enjoy most is traditional/ classics, impressionism, and for the more modern styles, illustration and art like Adventure Time, Over the Garden Wall, and Gravity Falls, like the self-portrait illustration to the left.

I can be found in these social medias:

Personal Tweets // Art Tweets // Art Instagram // Facebook Page


I also imagine that I’m sort of a writer to which I can be found not only on this blog drabbling up some crazies but also at DearPhil.Anne. I love writing. it’s a good diversion and great medium to convey myself when art just doesn’t cut it. These days, it happens often. So, it’s good to have multiple fancies. Don’t you think?

As a writer, I’ve cooked up some versions of myself.

You might find, you can relate to her just as much as I do. If so, that’d be wonderfully perfect.

They’re not so different, you know. They’re a bit too driven by their need to do the right thing. I think maybe, that’s just the kind of person I am.

Okay, okay… I’ll let you go now.

  1. Can I simply say what a comfort to discover anyone who actually realizes what they may be talking about on the internet. You actually discover how to bring a difficulty to light and make it vital. More people should learn it and know this side of the story. I cant believe you are not more popular because you really have the gift.

  2. I’ll immediately click on the rss as I can’t find your email subscription link or e-newsletter service. Do you have any? Please let me know in order that I could subscribe. Thanks.

  3. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. thanks a lot

    • Hello, Sheila. I think, I get more out of sharing myself than anyone else reading my blog honestly. Thank you also for stopping by. I hope to leave you a comment as well in the posts I’ve already read. 🙂
