Anxiety is a wild ride. Often, there seems to be an assumption that if you’re mentally ill, you just sit around and cry all the time. There is a certain amount of that, true, but there’s also much more to it.
Chuck Mullin has won fans with these funny, quirky pigeons that illustrate how mental health affects her everyday life. From Bad Times to Positivity, the comics use humour to provide a glimpse of what’s going on in Chuck’s head: dissociative episodes; cycles of anxiety; her struggle to accept she’s not alone; and the power of optimism on the days it’s possible.

Chuck is a twenty-something Londoner who is full of anxiety and a love of pigeons. She likes to combine the two of these things into comics that depict life with mental illness. When she’s not doodling, she likes to read, and to whittle away her life playing Animal Crossing. @charlubby / @chuckdrawsthings
