We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

Depression is a subject close to my heart and like many who inherited this unwanted gift, it’s been a life long battle to stay on top. It’s a disease and a killer by stealth but thankfully the associated stigma is slowly dissolving and long may it continue.

Cartooning is my sword and humour will always be my shield. Take care all.

    It seems to be the common plight of the creative, especially those who create art with humour!!!! xxx

  • Definitely Anne! Depression is a curse but I’m blessed with so many other great things that it will never drag me under..But by god it tries. Thank you for your support. You’re a treasure.

    Lol, love it! I too have suffered with depression all my life David, so I can understand where you are coming from. Probably explains your very black sense of humour and why it appeals to me! :-)

  • Thank you Tina, you’re a gem for sharing.

    you are so right about art being the weapon against sinking into depression. i see a lot of us are in the same leaky boat here. bravo for shining the light into the darkness. cheers!

  • It seems to be a common plight amongst the artistic JK. Thankfully we’re well armed and no easy pushovers.
