There’s absolutely nothing funny about depression or anxiety. However, laughter, as the old adage goes, is the best medicine and some sufferers find humor to be a good way of dealing with the daily struggles brought upon them by of anxiety and depression. A 21-year-old finance student and artist going by the moniker GeorgeDrawz is one of those people. He is a student and an internal auditor that loves drawing and expressing himself and his emotions through art who describes himself as “a self-taught artist and advanced procrastinator”.
George started sharing his comics with the world to see, as a way of venting his frustration from heartbreaks and letdowns. Remember that anxiety and depression affect everyone differently. These comics are a way for the artist to channel his feelings and emotions, and they serve him as a coping mechanism. The 21-year-old says that he loves the fact that his art helps people around the world that are going through difficult times.
He states: “Soon enough I started getting many encouraging and lovely messages from different people from all around the world. People just like me, with different but somehow similar stories. So from there, I figured that I can use my art as a way to show people that are going through difficult times, that they aren’t alone and that you should always try to take a laugh and see things from the brighter side.
All in all, if you’re dealing with something right now, I hope that my art makes you smile, even if it’s just for a bit.”
