Illustrator Highlights Mental Illness And Disorders To Fight The Stigma Associated With Them


Shawn Cross is an illustrator who has created 31 different dark art interpretations of mental illness disorders for Inktober in order to start an unconventional conversation.

In the past 2 years, mental health has become more openly talked about, but many people suffering from mental illnesses are still considered "crazy" or "mental". And as long as the stigma remains, Shawn says he'll keep creating artwork to continue that conversation.
