Feeling down? These online comic pages will turn that frown upside down

The internet may be a “double-edged sword” but one of the best things it has given us is the ability to share our works of art with people around the world. From pictures of their watercolor portraits to digital graphic posters, artists can now freely express themselves on a larger scale online. And among these mediums of art–that are taking over social media–are cartoons that relay positive messages and words of encouragement to people.

If you’re feeling a bit down today, here are a few online comics we think can turn your frown upside down:

The Happy Page

Oftentimes when you’ve had a bad day, you go through a flurry of negative emotions that make it almost impossible to see the good in things. But thanks to the one-panel caricatures of The Happy Page, we are reminded of the little things that make us happy. This includes simple joys like binge-watching our favorite show, drinking a nice cup of hot tea, or receiving a message from our besties.

The Good Advice Cupcake

The Good Advice Cupcake combines sass with positive words of encouragement. Through the persona of Cuppy the Cupcake and its food-related friends, the comic is able to relay its message of acceptance and positivity during times of struggle.

Best of all, The Good Advice Cupcake also has videos so you can watch Cuppy as it tries to address relatable issues today–in the most entertaining way possible.
