Holy Crap, These Instagrams Are Ridiculously Relatable
You'll feel understood like never before.
Have you ever seen something on Instagram and thought, Holy crap, this is actually me?
If you haven't yet, these hilarious, super-relatable illustrations are about to.
They're made by Mari Andrew, and they center on her favorite topics: feminist issues, the joy of being single, and the perils and triumphs of the creative life — and sometimes, all of those things combined.
Some of them, like this one, are so spot-on it feels like she's inside your brain.
Or like she's eavesdropped on an emotional heart-to-heart with your best friend.
Andrew also knows exactly how to draw situations we've all experienced but sometimes can't figure out how to describe.
Especially that moment when the dumbest, most mundane thing makes you start bawling.
Andrew began posting the drawings on Instagram to hold herself accountable for following through with this resolution, but now, it's so much more than that.
"I was going through a time of feeling pretty depressed and directionless after really tough year and a great struggle to find 'my thing.' I thought that having a consistent creative hobby would help me focus and be more positive, and drawing/painting seemed like such a calming thing to do," she told BuzzFeed News.
"I'm never happier than when I'm drawing and painting in the mornings. I'm almost done with my year of daily illustrations but now I have to continue — it's such a major part of my life!"
