13 illustrated fears from the Fear Project

Illustrator Julie M. Elman has worked with neighbors, family members, colleagues, students, and strangers on what she calls the Fear Project. As others share words about their deepest and darkest fears, Elman responds with a drawing. Having started  the project in 2012, the artist says that she has been moved by how open and vulnerable people have been when sharing their fears.

Creating work that is a montage of written text, illustrations, and mixed media, Elman says that the project has given her an awareness of how widespread fear is. “This project has resonated strongly with people,” she says, “simply because of how deeply embedded fear is in most of our daily lives. Everyone can relate.”
