Hello, I'm Gill and my alterego is Anxiety Girl.
I am an artist of sorts from a small Scottish town and I suffer from an anxiety disorder. Simple everyday tasks people take for granted can seem overwhelming to someone with anxiety and through expressing my frustration with art I have come to find that many people, even those who haven't got a diagnosed problem with anxiety, seem to connect to my silly comic style explanations. This has opened up many discussions about common understanding and I would really like, with your help, to put my doodles and experiences into print so that even if just one person found comfort from knowing someone else feels the same way, I would be happy.
I have a lot of notes and little scrappy comic panels, that I intend to compile into a short, maybe 20 page book that makes light of something no one talks about but also helps people understand how it feels.
I need help raising funds for materials to re-draw and polish up the comics, pens etc and also printing costs to sell a small run of books, If I can raise half my goal I plan to have the book done and printed by the end of the year, Any help whatsoever is massivly and greatly appreciated.
I'm not really sure what else to say but if you have any questions please drop me a message.
