Hey, my name is Adam and for the past two years, I've been drawing comics about my depression, anxiety and being single. Meet my alter ego: Depression Chicken, a dark soul in a fluffy yellow body.

Through my comics, I want to tell funny little stories and deal with my troubles and worries. It makes me happy when people identify with my stories and that sometimes I can make them laugh. Through the reactions of my community, I have the feeling that I am not alone in how I feel.

Is that… a fish bird? A bird fish? It’s a bish. No, that’s not right. A fird?

I work as a social media manager and I'm really lucky to like my job! I also take advantage of some experiences to post my comics on social media. After work I like to build LEGO (I think it's a very meditative and creative activity that helps me forget my worries), I love going to the cinema and I like to read books (currently I'm reading Fire and Blood, I really enjoy it). Comics, however, are currently a hobby that I like the most and that consumes most of my free time.

My Trauma Or My Favorite Color?

When I create my content, I often take inspiration from Instagram reels, but I prefer to stick to my original ideas. In this article I show you one of my favourite comics with Chicken and Birdfish on the beach (are you curious? Look below!). Birdfish is also one of my favourite protagonists - he is Chicken's best friend who lovingly (but also sometimes harshly) accompanies him.

My turtle escaped this morning, and I had to chase it down the street. That's enough exercise for the year!

Normally I draw one-panel comics and create small animations, but someday I would like to write a graphic novel about me and Chicken, where I describe my experiences about my mental health in more detail. From time to time I also dare to try some more "serious" drawings apart from cartoons. I also know that I'm not a professional, but the comics I do now are super fun! I started on paper with watercolours and now I draw my comics on my tablet. It's a real game changer that I would recommend to anyone who wants to start trying their hand at being a cartoonist themselves. You don't have to be great at drawing - the most important thing is that you entertain your communities with entertaining stories!

After all, I'm not a pro either. But I hope you still like my content. I have already received overwhelming feedback from my community on Instagram. I am most happy when I get messages and comments from my followers telling me that I made them laugh when they are having a bad day. Many also write to me that they can identify with my stories. That is very valuable feedback that makes me very happy, because then I know that I am not alone.

You can't buy confidence, but you can buy acting lessons and learn to fake it!
