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.

Artist Draws Comics About Being A Strong Independent Woman And Modern Life (20 Pics)

Striving for a better life or even better looks is always welcome and encouraged. However, not at the price of one’s wellbeing. Society puts high pressure on people to meet expectations that are neither real nor actually desired. Moreover, the stress of fitting into a “one size fits all” mold robs one’s joy in life because there’s no person just like you, and that’s your greatest weapon.

This is precisely what illustrator Lainey Molnar tries to convey in her artwork. Lainey is on a mission of “bettering the world for women.” The artist creates true-to-life and very aesthetically pleasing illustrations of what it means to be a woman in today’s society. In the comics, she explores the subjects of femininity, societal pressures, double standards, and various other issues that modern women face each day. Take a look at the beautiful illustrations Lainey has created. What’s your opinion? What are some of the stereotypes you believe women and men face today?
