Hello! I am Kate McDonough and I am the creator of these comics and illustrations.
Anxiety, especially social anxiety, has always been a part of my life. At times it has held me back and frustrated me. But through comics, I found a way to turn my frustration into communication. I've learned to see the humor in embarrassing moments, and to be kinder to myself.
Pretty, Pretty Ugly is the name of my comic series because some days with anxiety can be pretty, and others, not so much.
I create these comics hoping to connect with anyone affected by anxiety, and to help others understand it a little better. Thanks for taking a look!
