What you’re about to see are some pretty dark illustrations showing us what’s gone horribly wrong with society. Artist Mimi N. has fronted the SUN Project along with four other contributors. Mimi started working on these comics in 2007. It became her therapy to deal with epileptic episodes. Since then, she has continued to provide us with an eye-opening interpretation of the boundaries between happiness and sadness, beauty and ugliness, and so much more. The project has gained more than 170,000 Instagram followers, and Mimi’s glad that people relate to the loneliness and depression portrayed in these thought-provoking images.
This one illustrates a child stuck between two bickering parents, who aren’t seeing the big picture.
It’s sad that some folks can’t make their marriage work, or be civilized to each other for their kid’s sake.
We can all relate to this illustration because we’re always looking to get accepted on social media.
We post and post and hope people will hit like, but we dread the day people stop paying attention to us.
Words can hurt like a fist, or in this case, feel like hundreds of nails being hammered into your back.
One nail might not seem like a big deal, but hundreds or thousands of them will destroy your spirit.
Life is like a show, and we’re on a stage trying to play our parts, which can be difficult when we mess up.
Every mistake is a learning lesson, but it doesn’t feel like it when everyone’s criticizing our performance.
This is an excellent illustration of what it must feel like to suffer from social anxiety and insecurities.
Whatever it is that’s holding this kid back, he just can’t leave the house to join his friends outside.
