“The Pursuit of Serotonin”

I selected the neurotransmitter serotonin, because it is well known for being the cause of happiness. Serotonin is often increased by taking drugs such as LSD and cocaine. But the things to remember is that the serotonin naturally produced in the brain will cease as result of an overdose of artificial serotonin. Soon, one may not be able to feel happy, even with drugs. The production of serotonin can be damaged easily. Just a heads up that I am, in no way artistic. So this was a bit more difficult than I had imagined. In regards to “my creative process”, I tried to use many colors and make sure that the drawing did not look as if they had been done by a primary student, but in the end, it did.

    Ha! I really liked the name of your zine with respect to the effects of your neurotransmitter. “The pursuit of serotonin” was an awesome name considering serotonin affects well-being and happiness.
    Don’t worry, your drawings weren’t as bad as you think. I actually quite enjoyed the drawing with a person holding a sign with “I’m on the pursuit.”

    Hi! I really liked your Zine. It was really funny and informative. I didn’t know that serotonin is naturally increased by drinking water!
