Anxiety in Wonderland

A look into Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Depression through the eyes of artist Katia Oloy.

My Role: 
Concept Art, Visual Development, Illustration

In 2013 I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I immediately began to attend the prescribed workshops for anxiety and after completing two series, I began to feel like I had the ability to recognize and started to manage my anxiety. The most important part of living with (and thriving despite) anxiety and depression is taking the time to get an accurate reflection of where I was. Once I found my therapist, I was able to share my thoughts, worries, and perceptions I had of myself in a safe space, and ask for the tools to manage the terrifying thoughts and behavioral patterns I had developed. These are illustrations that capture and reflect my of moving through this process.
