2. @textsfromyourexistentialist

A witty take on self pity from artist and poet April Eileen Henry. Henry imposes the modern iMessage text box on images of Renaissance artwork. Each text box includes a melodramatic musing on the futility of modern life. It’s funny, contemplative, and strangely relatable.
