Quirky Self-Help Titles By Danish Illustrator Johan Deckman

Johan Deckman uses art and humor to help people overcome bad habits in his satirical self-help book series, Art Therapy. These are the self-help books your therapist doesn't want you to read.

As both an artist and psychotherapist, it only makes sense that the Danish illustrator would be able to come up with some pretty quirky motivational literature. "How to endure idiots rather than being alone," reads one of his biting D.I.Y titles.

I think gratitude, appreciation of being here and a portion of self-irony are the main keys to a happy life.

“Art is a good platform for psychological interaction or awareness,” Deckman explains. “As I see it, I make only one half of the work – the other half is done in your head.”

Each one is pretty direct and to the point, yet highly entertaining.

“Humour is a pretty convenient companion, given humankind’s condition. I think gratitude, appreciation of being here and a portion of self-irony are the main keys to a happy life.”
