Geographer and cartoonist Simon Moreton (Smoo Comics) created Better, Drawn. Moreton says of his site, “Better, drawn is a place for people to share stories about long-term mental and physical illnesses, told in the form of short comics. The site is a way for people to write and draw about their experiences that might otherwise be difficult to talk about openly. In fact, we think that sometimes things can be said better when they’re drawn. Submissions are open to anyone with a story to tell about coping with illness.” You can also listen to Simon discuss community and comics in this podcast.
