On Painting Your Feelings: Meet Kamal, Artist and Full Time He

Feelings can be beautiful, but sometimes also hard and confusing. Meet Kamal, e-cowboy and pink lemonade enthusiast who is not afraid to splatter them on canvas.

World Mental Health Day was just at the beginning of the week, on the 10th of October, and we are here to remind you that mental health is important. Yes, your feelings are important and valid, and yes, you have the right to express them. Also, do not hesitate to seek professional help if you feel depressed, overwhelmed or not so good. You deserve to be helped (yes, all of you)!

On that note, let us introduce you to our creator of the day, Kamal. This Edinburgh artist draws incredible illustrations addressing insecurities, doubts and just feelings in general, all the while studying at the Edinburgh College of Art.

He has recently crafted the illustrations for an upcoming poetry book by Etzali Hernández and the result is stunning. You can have a look at it in the gallery down below! And if you like his work, he will reopen his commissions in December - a great idea for a gift, if you ask us.
