Blending humor with mental health struggles, alternative songwriter/illustrator/podcaster Brett Newski makes fun of his own depression by offering mental health boosts in his first book " It's Hard to be a Person: defeating anxiety, surviving the world, and having more fun."
Years ago, somewhere on the Internet, I posted a few dumb drawings making fun of my own anxiety and depression.
The response to them was warmer than anticipated, and people kept asking for more. Blending humor with pure depression seemed to strike a chord with a decent amount of people. So I kept going, and after about three years of drawing, I had enough dumb drawings for a book called It's Hard to be a Person: defeating anxiety, surviving the world, and having more fun.
