Ranjit used animals because he found it easier to identify with them. After years of struggling with mental health issues, beginning with eating disorders as a child, Ranjit was diagnosed with depression, anxiety and borderline personality disorder as an adult. After schema therapy, his doctor recommended that he write down his thoughts and maintain a daily diary. Ranjit, who had graduated in fine arts from KU in 2014, found that he was sketching more than writing in his journals. Since it helped him to identify and process his emotions, he stuck with it.
Initially, as an experiment, he gave himself a 30 day challenge. Every day, he would take a piece of paper and work with different painting materials: pen, brush, ink, crayons, pencil colours, and posted the sketches on his social media.
