I am a pretty anxious and pessimistic person. Sometimes, even though good things happen and everything goes well, I will still be anxious - and even more anxious and fearful than when I was in a bad situation. When I think about it, I imagine everybody in the world will face anxiety because the environment we live in keeps changing. The change in our environment causes anxious emotion in our minds. So, it seems like anxiety is written in our genes. Anxiety is also an emotion that has a relation with a lot of other kinds of emotion, like loneliness, sorrow, depression, fury, etc. For my thesis project, I decided to draw a series of illustrations to express these kinds of emotions.
In addition, the sudden outbreak of COVID - 19 this year makes me feel more about anxiety. The world changed so fast because of this outbreak. Everybody feels overwhelmed. Suddenly people can only stay at home and face the unknown future without being able to do anything.
