This week i have been carrying on my research into zines and anxiety. I have been looking at artists such as Gemma Correll, who often explores anxiety as her subject. I like the way she draws, it’s quite childlike. I also like how she makes a depressing¬†subject quite light hearted. She doesn’t do it in an ignorant way because it’s clear she has a good understanding of the subject and perhaps struggled with it herself. ¬†She writes down thoughts and it can show how ridiculous anxiety can make people act and think. Its as if she is trying to get people to see the funny side of things. I was initially drawn to her work because she captures how I have felt and I felt some comfort in her work.
