For Anna Sellheim ’16 the act of making comics is therapeutic
Anna Sellheim ’16 has been spotlighted on Graphic Medicine, a website promoting the “use of comics in medical education and patient care.” Anna has publishing autobio comics about her mental health in a series called Everything’s Fine. Though they started as doodles in a sketchbook, she polished them up and drew them in color for some class assignments at CCS. Then she compiled them into small zines. These grew into the ongoing web comic. In the Graphic Medicine spotlight, she writes about how she got into comics and why she has continued creating her mental health–themed autobio comic.
