Rest in Power
2016 was a year full of emotions and death. To make a tribute to these 16 people who lost their lives in this year, we decided to do a minimalistic series of illustrations.
Carrie Fisher was an actor (most notably known for playing Princess Leia in Star Wars), writer, producer and mental health activist. She spoke openly about her own mental illness and history with addiction history and fought against the social stigma on mental health and substance use. In one interview she said, “I am mentally ill. I can say that. I am not ashamed of that. I survived that, I’m still surviving it, but bring it on.”
What are you doing in 2017 to support mental illness?
