As a creative, drawing has always been my best tool to explain the strange thoughts racing around in my head. I’m often drawing about “things” I don’t understand or understand later. These “things” are mental health issues.

Some months ago, I shared some comics about my mental illness in an article. I live with anxiety, panic disorder and cyclothymia and I felt really proud when I read your comments on social medias.

I felt proud to see that my drawings could help, offer comfort or even help with educating people about mental health issues. Now, I want to be an advocate by doing that and help more people.

Today, I am here to share some more comics with you. And many more will come on my blog.
