These Heartwarming Comics Sum Up The Common Yet Complex Parenting Problems & Give Best Solutions

There are several ways to cope up with depression and anxiety.

From art to music, the possibilities are endless. Similarly, Christopher Grady, a father, and teacher from Toronto finds comfort in drawing. Grady’s drawings and illustrations are a journey where he chronicles everyday moments. From his life as a school teacher, husband and father of two kids, his drawings narrate it all.

“I needed a positive place to focus all my thoughts and found that when I was making comics I felt a little bit better,” he says.

The comic series called Lunarbaboon is a documentation of Grady’s life experiences. And the response Grady’s comics got inspired him to draw more.

“I began getting messages from many people about how they connected to the comics and it gave them hope and strength as they went through their own dark times,” he says.

“Usually the circle of people we can support, help, influence is limited to our families, friends, coworkers, random stranger at the bus stop, but with my comic I suddenly found my circle of power was much much larger,” Grady explains. “I guess I decided to use this power for good.”

#2 Grady continued to draw, infusing the panels with his own special brand of positivism.

Grady’s comics tackle important subjects with an effective lighthearted touch. To which, you can’t help but smile.

“Kids are always watching adults and they look to the adults as role models,” he says. “I try to show (my kids and students) that even with all my flaws and weaknesses I am still a good person and I can still make a positive change in the world.”
