I am inspired by the illustrations of Toby Allen's monsters of mental illness and the words of Andri Lankov. "not to recognize someone's s suffering is another form of abuse." Here I created my own three-dimensional monsters. I depicted anxiety with time and impulsivity and paranoia with feelings of being watched and exposed and schizophrenia as the gang leader of them all and most powerful. How do you run away from the things that are in your head? An estimated 26.2 percent of American's ages 18 and older or about one in four adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder. Everyone knows someone with a mental illness.
