What is Thrive?
I really like doing illustrations about thrive, because thriving is so essential to how well we like to be on this planet, how we feel and how much we want to take care, both of each other, but also of the environment, our relationships and the different communities we belong to.
Here I have collected some of the drawings about psychology, thrive and the challenges to feeling well
