Comics and art, in general, are great ways for people to express themselves. This is especially great for those who are dealing with mental illness.
An artist by the name of Haenuli Shin enjoys drawing very much, one look through her Facebook page and you will instantly be in awe! It is obvious in her work that she equates the personification of ‘death’ to depression. This meaning that she gives a face to the things that many of us are feeling and going through.
She gives me lots of inspiration when it comes to how I feel towards myself and makes me feel as if I am not alone. Accepting your depression is one of the biggest steps in treating it and her artwork is a step in the right direction towards acceptance for a lot of people who come across it. The relationship she portrays is one of a romantic relationship with ‘death’ or ‘depression.’ It is chilling and comforting all at the same time.
To check out some of her work take a look below.to see more on her Facebook page or to take a look at her Instagram. It is mindblowing how intense the art of some people truly is. Enjoy!
