British illustrator Gemma Correll has found a humorous way to deal with her daily mood struggles. She has channeled her depression and anxiety into art in a way that anyone can relate to. She believes that depression is devastating to live with but art is a form of self-care.
These illustrations are relatable, funny and truthful. They expose the dark side of anxiety and depression, but Gemma handles them with a lightness that she hopes will make any depressed person feel less isolated. Her illustrations cover among others, the dread of social interactions, overthinking, feeling bad for feeling bad or stressing about not being stressed.
