Today on Episode 9 of The Socialista Podcast, I get the chance to have a conversation with Ryan Brunty, the artist, and creator behind Depressed Monsters. I learn more about his childhood, growing up in Las Vegas, spending his time drawing and later realizing going through periods of depression. Ryan opens up about his battle with depression and anxiety as a young adult which led him to stay in his room for two weeks after the passing of his grandfather. He talks more in-depth about how this period of depression influenced his creative paintings and drawings. This was the beginning of Yerman the Yeti and Depressed Monsters. The Depressed Monsters brand now uses characters, such as Yerman, to break down the barriers and stigma around mental health. Ryan has turned a tough point in his life into a passion-driven creative outlet and business to talk more about mental health issues. Listen to learn more about Ryan's journey and Depressed Monsters.
