Migraines Make Me Cry



I drew her at work when I was having a bad pain flair up. I like how she is leaning under her swirly migraine hair.

Migraine Day Button

Here is a great idea. A cute button to let your co-workers know that you're feeling terrible with a migraine. It's a Social Alert Button from WordForWordGreetings.

"You feel terrible. You've taken some Rx and are waiting for it to start working. You're trying to keep it together at the desk job. Does this sound like you? Want to explain your haggard look and slowed down brain speed to your co-workers with minimal effort and maximum results? THEN THIS MIGRAINE BUTTON IS FOR YOU! Keep it on hand for those days you've got to be a person in the world, but instead you're a person trying to overcome a migraine headache, in the world. Hand-pressed 1.25" pin back button - ready to wear!"

Migraine Barbie

Sometimes when Migraine Barbie has a bad pain flair up, it feels like her head is covered in prickly steel wool.

The Migraine Action Art Exhibition.

"Artist Mike Jory is holding an online exhibition of paintings to raise funds for national migraine charity Migraine Action. Mike has suffered from chronic migraine for 20 years but finds painting constantly rewarding. ‘One of the great things about art is that you can do a painting in stages, so it is an activity which one can fit around migraine attacks’ says Mike. He continues ‘Migraine can make it difficult to progress in life, whether in one’s career or a hobby, but producing art regularly has provided me with a thread of stability over the years, each project brings with it something new to learn and the sense of accomplishment upon completing a painting is always a joy’. Mike exhibits in galleries across the South West of England, in major London galleries and his images which have appeared on television and in the national press are in private collections around the world. The artist’s work focuses predominantly on animal and landscape paintings but he also creates figure paintings, portraits, hidden image pictures, murals and cartoons. The exhibition includes original paintings, drawings and high quality giclee prints. In addition a wide range of merchandise is available to which the customer can add their own personal message making for truly unique gifts. With gift prices starting at a couple of pounds and the most expensive original paintings selling for £1500 there is something for everyone! A percentage of all purchases made through the exhibition website will be donated to Migraine Action, a charity which offers support and information to the one in seven people in the UK affected by migraine."
