"Laugh as much as possible, always laugh. It's the sweetest thing one can do for oneself & one's fellow human beings." - Maya Angelou

There's no better way to face everyday problems than a good sense of humour. That's what Gemma Correll tried to do by creating some really funny pictures that illustrate the problems of anxiety and depression. It was her own mental disorders who led her to create these illustrations. Humour was her way to express herself and what she is constantly facing.

Correll is a British cartoonist, writer and illustrator currently living in California. She studied Art in Norwich, England. She has a BA degree in Graphic Design, specializing in Illustration.

What’s essential to Correll, is to break down the stigma of depression in modern society and help people talk about their mental disorders. As she has says, “I honestly think that humor can be a savior at times of distress or, if you just live with a constant level of anxiety and depression like I do. I do think that people should speak more freely about anxiety. I know that I would have felt a little better as an anxiety-ridden teenager if I knew that I wasn’t completely alone in my fears”.

Some of her illustrations talk about the ‘perils of chronic overthinking or ‘the inferiority complex’ while another one is called ‘the worrier’s guide to life’. They depict the fears of a person with anxiety problems. They also show the way people with anxiety disorders and depression face themselves, their family and friends or the society in general.

Gemma has received thousands of messages on her Facebook page from people who suffer from similar disorders and haven’t been able to share what they’re going through. A woman wrote to her: ‘Thank you for your spot-on illustrations. I have bipolar II, anxiety…the list goes on and on. No one talks about it. There is humor in it. You have to see the humour or it kills you.’

  1. Although Rolex has been producing chronographs since at least the thirties, the replica watches history can actually be traced back to the fifties, when Rolex made a few chronographs which they at times rather unimaginatively titled. Rolex appears to rolex replica really want you to know much about these ousted models not one tag heuer replica chronograph is in their otherwise really quite detailed history page, nor is one in their fake rolex sale more detailed history page on their press only site. If you had the gold one it just meant you had more money to spend on it, but in replica watches sale enthusiast circles rocking a steel one to this day means you likely dedicated a lot of effort in hunting one of these down if it were to come from authorized sources. Because this does happen for a few logical reasons but their cumulative effect on the steel Daytona ownership experience are very much relevant here.
