Surreal and sadly relatable one-panel comic suggestions about how to live life.

Instead of ending it all, you could paint a face on an egg and crush it, search for something that you’ll never find with a metal detector or edit the moon’s wikipedia page. 100 snapshots to help one live life, using dark humor and a focus on the inane as a vehicle for self-help. Featuring alternatives to struggling with poor mental health by way of untamed animals, positive affirmations and one-star yelp reviews.“

There is so much unnecessary stigma and shame surrounding issues of mental health. This book began as a way for us to work through our own experiences with depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation. We found catharsis in this project, and hope that it will make space for those who may be suffering to engage in a more neutral and open dialogue about the state of their own mental health.”
