Cindy Kang’s phenomenal illustration work can now be seen in Linn Martinsen’s Therapy Toolkit: Sixty Cards for Self-Exploration, which has been published by Laurence King Publishing. The toolkit features sixty beautiful illustrations, split into 4 different categories (Experiences, Emotions, Relationships and Childhood) that allow the user to engage with and reflect on their experiences and help begin a therapeutic self-exploration, all designed by experience therapist Linn Martinsen.

Cindy Kang was featured on Laurence King Publishing’s website in a Q&A about her involvement with this amazing project. When asked if she had a favourite card from the collection, she responded: “The parents card: it reminds me of the bittersweet emotion I have every time I leave my home and family in Seoul to go to New York. New York has everything and everyone else but them. I visit home often, but seeing them wave goodbye is always difficult. This illustration evokes that complex combination of excitement and nerves that comes with leaving a place so emotionally and physically safe. Also an overwhelming gratitude for everything they provide and represent.”
