This personal illustration was created for Brighton-based Artist Lucy Irving, as part of her book launch and charity print sale. Her book titled: ‘Exercise Your Demons: A Mindful Journal’ addresses the awareness of mental health issues and offers 'a devilishly creative solution’ to identifying and managing your inner demons, by suggesting that you get to know them.
