Connecting with Anxiety

Connecting with Anxiety - student project

I started the project with the first 2 excercises. The journaling was mostly in my mind and during this time I feel anxiety a lot, so it wasn't very hard to dive deep down into my feelings about it.

I didn't like the mandala very much, but it was an outlet.

I had 2 ideas and both got stuck in my mind, so I opened my sketchbook and just drew them both side by side. The first to finish was actually the face, because it dried a bit faster. The plant one is my favorite out of the 2 illustrations, I just like the outcome more. I just imagined how it feels for me when I have anxiety. Sometimes the objects around me are an outburst of something and I just made an illustration of that feeling.

The face was to show how it feels like for me when I have anxiety. My thoughts are just to big for my head and want to burst out, but sometimes I can't describe it, so I'm a bit quiet sometimes when I feel like that.

I think the pages look nice next to each other. They're different, but tied together by the scribbles.
