“I Advocate Body Positivity And Mental Health In My Work”: Artist Creates Honest Comics Illustrating Her Everyday Problems As A Woman (39 New Pics)

Bored Panda got in touch with the artist to get to know more about her and her creative process. Prudence revealed to us that she always wanted to become an artist. “When I was little, my older brother always drew comics and I knew I wanted to make them too when I grew up. I was a bit of a sad child, going through abuse at a young age by my grandfather, growing up very anxious, and getting bullied all the way through school. But eventually, art school became my safe haven. I really loved painting, especially with oil paint on the canvas at the time.”

The artist continued that in her senior year, she was assigned a mentor who also turned out to “be a pervert” so instead of graduating, she developed depression, OCD, an eating disorder. “I decided not to meet his demands, keep my dignity and dropped out at 17. Year-long trauma came to the surface and my dreams of becoming an artist were shattered. This was back in 2009 when it was important to get degrees to become the thing you want, you know.”
