Meet Donna Lewis - Pics and words that pick you up.

Washinghton, D.C. based Donna Lewis, is a creative force at the intersection of arts, cartooning and mental health advocacy, seamlessly weaving humour and awareness into the fabric of her work.

I had the pleasure of interviewing cartoonist Donna in which we explored her work and she generously shared some mental health challenges she had overcome in her own life, as well as great advice for others.

Best known for her web comic "Crazed Angels," Donna initiated a community of hardworking celestial beings whose benevolent efforts to assist humans were consistently thwarted by human resistance to help. Transitioning to "Reply All" and "Reply All Lite," Donna explores the pitfalls of enlightenment with a delightful blend of wit and visual storytelling.

A versatile artist, Donna, also a mental health advocate, ventured into the world of creative communications after a brief stint in local stand-up comedy. Recognising the conflicts between late-night schedules and her body's internal clock, she redirected her comedic talents into the realm of cartooning.

Starting with basic stick figures paired with material drawn from her stand-up routines, Donna discovered a charming and entertaining escape from reality.

Hailing from an "annoyingly funny family," Donna draws endless inspiration from their absurd notions about the world, translating familial anecdotes into delightful illustrations and narratives. She assures her audience that no family members were harmed in the creation of her strips, yet some names were left unchanged to humorously incriminate those deserving of such.

In her daily life, Donna Lewis contributes to the operations of the federal government in Washington, D.C., engaging in frequent debates on constitutional issues. Her enduring love for government and the Constitution remains evident, shaping her perspective as both an artist and an advocate.

Beyond her cartooning endeavours, Donna is the proud owner of BellaBooDC, a design studio specialising in character art, design, and patterns for licensing and publishing.

With an ever-evolving mastery of drawing, Donna has transformed her initial stick figures into intricate depictions, now capable of capturing the nuanced details of expression.

Donna stands as a testament to the power of creativity, humour, and advocacy, using her artistic talents to uplift and enlighten audiences while making a significant impact in the mental health community.

You can reach Donna on LinkedIn here and via her website here.
