Artist Suffering From Anxiety And Depression Illustrates Her Daily Life In Funny Comics (20 Pics)

Although the pandemic has worsened mental health for many, it has also taught us to be more open about what we are going through. Because of Covid-19, at one point, many of us experienced the feeling of loneliness, isolation, overthinking, and uncertainty about what the future will hold. These are the feelings and emotions people with depression and anxiety go through on a daily basis.

Luckily, many more people share their daily struggles and battles with mental issues on social media. When people online share something so personal and sensitive, it evokes a feeling that we are not alone. That someone across the globe is fighting a similar battle, and it’s a battle you can win by taking baby steps every day.

Everyone handles emotions differently. Someone turns to a friend or a family member, someone delves into unhealthy addictions, and someone turns to art. British illustrator Gemma Correll turned to comics to cope with hardships through a pinch of humor. Using simple illustrations that depict the life of a person struggling with mental issues, Gemma transmits her feelings in a relatable way to over 924K followers on Instagram. Simply take a look.

Man Recreated The Appearance Of “The Lord Of The Rings” Characters According To Their Original Descriptions (5 Pics)

Truth be told, writers take the time and utmost precision to describe their characters. Of course, their readers must have an exact mental image in their head rather than have them imagining and guessing what the character looks like. It’s a part of writing that is useful for the audience.

However, when movie industries read novels, they’ll most often ditch these descriptions to the trash and deem them unnecessary. They would just often go with the actor that would go well with the character, disregarding how the author wanted their character to be. And that’s where the artist Ivan Rebikow comes in. Below, he reimagined 5 Lord of the Rings characters based on Tolkien’s descriptions in the books. Scroll down below and see how much has changed!
