October is the month when Mental Health Awareness events take place. Artist and illustrator Shawn Coss decided to illustrate his own interpretations of mental health disorders for The Inktober Initiative, where artists from all over the world ink one drawing per day in October.
Every year thousands of artists get involved with Inktober, where for 31 days of October, you ink a drawing for each day.
I decided to go off the usual prompt and focus on mental illnesses and disorders.
As dark and as haunting as these illustrations are, they’re beautifully done.
