These illustrations came out of the dark reality of graduating; not knowing where my future is and the effect of this on my mental health. I was, and still am, in a very confusing place and I wanted these designs to highlight how I was feeling.
The ‘Deluded’ piece is a reflection of how I struggle to get out of bed when I let all my negative thoughts get to me, allowing them to replace rational thinking.
The ‘Nexus’ illustration is an abstract depiction of my brain and how making connections between your thoughts can be a bad route to go down as it causes overthinking and paranoia.
