Artist Martin Rosner has recently started creating comics, and we are so glad he did because he clearly has a talent for it. But what may seem just some funny comics is actually giving a glimpse into artist's not so simple life.

“This whole thing started because I decided to make a comic a day for two months straight. I was severely depressed for two years and failed two colleges but thanks to therapy, meds and a lot of work on myself I'm doing much better. Making these comics to me is like being able to say to my depression, ‘even with you in the way I am still able to make something,’“ Martin told Bored Panda.

“I try to be open about depression, I know it always helps to know that you're not the only one struggling,” he told us. “Getting it out of my system is a great help. People reacting positively to me sharing my feelings is even better. I feel like I make a tiny connection with others. Just a tiny one but it is there.”

Perhaps this project, which started as a kind of therapy, can grow into something much bigger? “First I have make a website, then figure out how to sell prints properly,” Martin told Bored Panda. “I don't have an end goal in mind but several smaller ones. I try not to focus too much on the number and statistics because I know that's the best way to make yourself miserable.”

Martin’s end goal is to make a living from his comics, art and even the occasional stand up show, another skill he has been developing to overcome an anxiety of being the focus of people’s attention. “I would love to improve to a level where I can sell tickets for a show,” he told us. But that is for the future.
