1. What was your identity before your trauma experience?
2. What did you like or not like about that identity?
3. What is your identity now?

Q: How long should my letter be?

Some people write a couple paragraphs, others write pages. The goal of this exercise is to allow yourself the opportunity to slow down and reflect on who you are. We accept letters of any length, but encourage you to write at minimum 3 paragraphs in order to address the 3 questions.


Q: How long does it take for my letter to be turned into art?

This depends on how many letters have recently been submitted. The artist generally creates art for the letters in the order they are received, and it can take 1-2 weeks to create one art piece. We generally try to post letters within 2-3 months of your submission, but often it happens much sooner. 


Q: Does the artist use my image to create the art piece?

When you submit your letter, you have the option to include an image of yourself for the artist to use as inspiration. This is often helpful in creating your art, but is not necessary. Please know that if you do not include an image of yourself, the artist has creative liberty to produce a character that represents you. 

Q: Do I own the artwork that's created for my letter?

No, Irene's Entropy is the sole owner of all artwork created for this project. There is a terms and conditions box that must be checked before you can submit your letter stating this.

Q: Can I have a copy of the artwork that's created for my letter?

Yes, Irene's Entropy has options for you to order your artwork on a canvas, print, etc. Please contact us for more information.

Q: Can I share the artwork that was created for my letter?

Yes, absolutely! Please tag @irenes.entropy on your social media and tell the world what we're doing. In a world where social media has become snapshots of the "pretty" parts of our life, it is especially empowering to share these stories with others and create vulnerability in our social spaces.

Q: Can I rescind my letter once I submit it?

There is a terms and conditions box that must be checked before you can submit your letter. In it, we clarify that once a letter is submitted we own the art and the letter as a part of the Irene's Entropy collection. However, we will absolutely do our best to work with you on a case by case basis if you feel that it is not in your best interest to have your letter as a part of this collection. 

Q: Does this cost me anything?

No. While we do pay our artists for creating the artwork, at this time we do not charge you for anything. Irene's Entropy is meant to be an opportunity for you to dig deeper into your identity and ask yourself "why."
