35 Best And Anxiety-Free News Of The Year 2021 As Illustrated In These Adorable Graphics

by Sophia

If there's one thing that the years 2020 and 2021 have been abundant with, it's the collection of bad news toppling over each other, all while in the middle of a pandemic. Does it seem like the years just keep getting worse—or is it just because we are getting older?

The bad news is inevitable, though, no matter what age we are. That's why an illustrator by the name of Mauro Gatti made it a point to make people be more optimistic by producing artworks that feature actual great news to counter the bad ones we receive every day.

Gatti set up an online project on Instagram called "The Happy Broadcast", in which he features his artworks that present anxiety-free news for all his followers as a way to help with their deteriorating mental health from all the problems we have faced in the world. The past few years have not been exactly gentle, so Gatti aimed to induce some positive news presented as adorable graphics for all his followers to see.

“I want to create something positive as an anti-venom to the vitriolic rhetoric that pervades our media,” he says on the official website of The Happy Broadcast.

“That’s why I illustrate and share positive news from around the world in the hope that it brings you some happiness and inspires you to spread some good news yourself," he adds.

Now, Instagram has gained over 600k followers. Check out some of his works below!
