For my Final Major Project (FMP) I created an illustrated book about self-acceptance, depression, and finding you own happy ending. The book title Semicolon is based on Project Semicolon, an initiative to spread awareness about depression and suicide, and also to serve as a point of inspiration for those who struggle with this.
By creating this book I wished to convey the message that no matter how alone and dark your world may seem;
you are never alone. And most importantly that having feelings of depression is nothing to be ashamed about. My book serves as a way to spread awareness and inspiration, which can hopefully help or motivate people to continue their own story.
Created during my BA (hons) Graphic Communication of the University of Northampton.
