This Relatable Comic Illustrates the Risks of Using Perfectionism to Outrun Our Issues

Illustrator Julia Scheele captures exactly what it’s like to handle anxiety by trying (and often failing) to maintain perfection in every area of your life in this 9-page comic. She also captures just how crushing that practice can be to creativity, productivity, and well-being.

Scheele’s work often explores the weight and frustration that come along with mental health issues, including this excellent ghost story that many of us will probably find relatable, and this celebration of managing the little things in the midst of winter.
