In quarantine, as live performances and art fairs have been deemed non-essential outside the home, we've come to know just how essential art is to our mental health. Luckily, many artists didn't stop creating while in quarantine, with some even going as far as using their art to help people express themselves better, too.

Inspired by children's books, Dani Go illustrated an alphabet aimed to help kids (and grownups) express their emotions while in quarantine.

Learn more about this young artist as she talks about creating the alphabet, putting yourself out there (and joining communities), and the importance of prioritizing mental health in the life of an illustrator.
