My 30 Wholesome And Not-So-Wholesome Comics About Mental Health And Relationships
These comics mainly revolve around my mental health issues, my adorable partner (Prithvi), and my insanely supportive parent (Bharathi). It is essential to be positive, but at the same time, it is also necessary to acknowledge the dark side of depression, anxiety, BPD, and trauma recovery.
I started making these comics around two years ago, and the followers of my page have been so kind and supportive. If I can make even one person out there feel a little less alone in their battle with mental health or bring a smile on their face for half a second, then I think my art is on the right path.
I started writing fiction as a form of escapism but eventually gave it up. I find creating autobiographical comics to be so much more rewarding since I'm not running away from my life with this art form, instead, I translate my happy, sad, funny incidents into comics.
Being a Chartered Accountant was my day job but I recently took the leap to become an artist full time.
It takes about 3 to 4 hours to create a comic. If it is an animated piece, then it takes slightly longer to make.
I'm happy to announce that volume 1 of my comic collection is currently available for pre-order. Check it out here.
My comics have helped me cope with my mental health struggles significantly since it helps me focus on all the good in my life and to navigate my dark days.
And I hope that when people come across my comics they will feel a little less alone or it will brighten up their day for at least a second.
