When Mari Andrew was going through a time of grief and loss, she decided to make one drawing a day and post it on Instagram. Three years and over a million followers later, her hobby and creative outlet has invited us all into her inner world, where she examines everything from love to mortality to the highs and lows of texting.
Her relatable illustrations depict the beautiful, complicated, and often sad realities of modern life, shining light on the feelings that we often hide. With incredible candor and unexpected humor, Mari’s work inspires viewers to find their own resiliency, embrace their own creativity and express themselves fully.
