Axnious people illustrations

These amazing and funny illustrations show how terrifying and silly life of anxious people can be.

We all experience fear throughout our lives, but sometimes it happens that fear takes a hold of us and prevents us from leading the lives we want to. It starts as a sleepless night or too much stress and before you know it you find yourself thinking all sorts of terrible thoughts. Did I do something wrong? Will people I care about like me? The list of questions is endless, but the answers don’t bring peace.

A Mumbai-based illustrator Pranita Kocharekar created illustrations that focus on the feelings all anxious people are familiar with and how they manifest in real life situations. The images she created are light-hearted and funny. Pranita said in an interview:

I spoke to a lot of friends suffering through minor anxiety and illustrated our conversations. I wanted to express it as purely and genuinely as possible, so people could relate to it and acknowledge it.

The Acknowledge Anxiety project began as a way of expressing emotions, but it grew to something much bigger than just a simple expression. It became a vehicle for raising awareness about one of the most menacing mental illnesses in the modern world. Instead of illustrations that are gloomy in their atmosphere, the images the 24-year-oldillustrator produced are humorous. When asked about the tone of her illustrations, she said that:

Using a serious approach could make an already anxious person even more anxious, I wanted to keep the mood as light as possible.

Modern life can be stressful and even unbearable, which is why a growing number of people finds it difficult not to worry too much. Laughter is possibly the best cure for anxiety because it reduces the stress and makes you feel like everything is as it should be, at least in that moment. This is why Pranita’s illustrations are so powerful because they make you feel that everything is in its right place, at least for that short moment in which you are seeing her images.

Scroll down and enjoy these fun and light-hearted illustrations that will reassure you that you are not the only person in the world who is struggling with anxiety and will give you the strength to go on.

April 29th, 2017|

In a society where aggression and independence are revered, soft-hearted people are sometimes viewed with suspicion. But kindness can be a superpower.
