Somewhere in Japan on a cucumber farm you’ll find Freddy Carrasco, the Toronto raised illustrator pushing out drawings for the likes of Nike, Ace and Tate and Microsoft. Why a cucumber farm? A vital part of Freddy’s work is balance and he hasn’t let go of his rural farming roots, despite carving a path for himself in the creative scene.
For this years World Mental Health day, Freddy linked with eye ware company Ace and Tate to create a comic focusing on mental health and self acceptance. The goal of the project was to inspire a discussion and let people know that it’s alright to reach out if you need help. “You can never guess that these people are dealing with these kinds of things until it’s too late”, says Freddy.
