Depression Poster Series

For this poster series I put recognisable sad thoughts into an exaggerated fun 'fair' vibe. The posters seem fun at first but have a deeper, serious message. In this way I wanted to give more breathing space into the conversation of a loaded subject. 

The concept of depicting something sad into a bright and playful way became the core of my work. Not to throw a pity party, but to acknowledge sad feelings and deal with it. You will see this theme return in other illustrations in my portfolio.

 

The first two posters are available in my shop.

 

Left: 'Emotionally Unstable'. Right: 'Feelings? No! Avoiding my emotions'.

 

'I don't know what I want'.
