My thesis project focuses on my lifelong struggle with anxiety, its effects on my life and how I interact with people. This is expressed in various illustrations compiled into a photobook format of a musical album. This project functions as a visual medium that is able to be held and flipped through by the viewer to explore my journey. In my life, music has been a huge inspiration and a way to cope with my anxiety and I used illustration to communicate my internal struggles that anyone who struggles with anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues can relate to.
