“I was sort of depressed and found myself going home just to watch Netflix way more often,” Andrew told Business Insider in an email. “I wanted a creative hobby, so I thought illustrating would be an easy, enjoyable way to document little moments from my day.”

She started posting her drawings to Instagram to hold herself accountable, and soon enough, she started building a following. Today, the 29-year-old has over 26,000 followers on her account.
