Mental Health & Mythical Beasts -- Golem


Introducing my latest weekly project, Mental Health and Mythical Beasts! Every week I’ll draw a random beast from folklore and mythology and associate it with a mental health topic.

This week’s beast is the Golem from Jewish folklore with depression. Depression to me feels like wandering the world inside an empty body, so I felt the association with the soulless Golem was quite suitable from personal experience.
