18 Spot-On Illustrations To Get You Through Your Quarter-Life Crisis

"I'm on a juice cleanse and it's going to be fine. The juice is fermented... Okay it's just wine."

Instead of simply refusing to grow up during her quarter-life crisis -- Samantha Jayne decided to draw about it. 

The 25-year-old illustrator, writer and actress draws dozens of sketches paired with short poems to reflect her unenthusiastic and often hilarious climb into adulthood. Titled "Quarter Life Poetry," the illustrations cover experiences so many unwilling 20-something women have to face, such as Tinder dates, stealing your parents' Netflix password and the routine of gleefully canceling plans. 

"There are so many moments of second-guessing, confusion, and weirdness at this age that I find the best way to not get too consumed by it is to make light of it," Jayne told The Huffington Post.   

With over 54,000 followers on Instagram, it's safe to say Jayne's illustrations have resonated with many people.

"I used to think I was the only one feeling this way, but I’ve realized through posting the poems on Instagram that a LOT of my peers are in the same boat," Jayne said. "Realizing that we’re all going through this together has been so validating."

Jayne said that creating these illustrations are like therapy for her. She draws the comics on a tablet using a digital pen and uploads them directly to her website and Instagram. 

"No one likes to feel isolated, and I love being able to facilitate a real conversation about how 20-somethings are feeling," Jayne said. "And being able to laugh about all of it together is the best part."
