Back in 2013,


Isabella Rotman

released the zine


The short story

features a circus

bear who is finally free,

only to be overwhelmed

by all of the possibilities

that the world offers

and instead digs a hole

to be alone.

The story speaks

on depression,

anxiety, fear, and isolation,

all things that can happen

to even the strongest

of nature's creatures.

Told in a moving,

beautifully illustrated way,

you can view Dig.

fully right here

and you can

buy it right here.
