Artist Spotlight: Megan McNulty

Written By: Kaitlyn

For each Crybaby Subscription Box, it is very important to us to highlight the makers and movers that made this box happen (the box is currently on sale!) The purpose of this box is to spread support and love while also supporting creatives and their endeavors. These are their stories. 

As I am writing this, I just finished Face-Timing with Megan McNulty, the sweetest gal you will ever meet. Living in Holland and working as a freelance graphic designer, Megan is super charming and welcoming. She showed me her adorable little street she lives on and we chatted about what inspires her and what she made for our subscription box. 

Megan has been following The Crybaby Club for a while now on Instagram and always loved our posts, so when she saw that we were looking for artists to collaborate with on our next box, she knew she had to get involved. 

"I thought, 'ohmygod, I have to,'" Megan said. "It seemed like it needed to be something. It needed to be something that I do." 

The prints that Megan contributed to the box are inspired by her own journey with her emotions and with herself. 

Many years ago, Megan's boyfriend called her emotional. 

"At the time, I really took that as an insult," Megan said. "And now that I'm older, I understand things better...Just because I can cry easily, doesn't mean I can't smile easily." 

After she graduated university with degrees in both Graphic Design and Illustration, she worked in a place that just wasn't for her. She wasn't happy, and that struggle with her emotions inspired some of her prints. She quit that job and started her own shop and freelance work. 

"I can do what I love every day," Megan said. 

For her prints for the box, she wanted to expand on this and talk about crying, but make sure that crying wasn't seen as a bad thing. 

"There's nothing wrong with crying," Megan said. "There can be good."
