Quite saddening illustrations... Emote very well and also, I like the hopeful color outlet that people often seem to ignore and worry needlessly.

These are very powerful. Nicely done.

An important issue, and you've beautifully illustrated the series Gavin.

The woman with the grim reaper behind her is chilling.

Amazing job, well done.

justdoodleit - yes it's a terrible state to be in... hopefully the exhibition will help people to identify these symptoms and get treated early :)

Chelsea - thanks for your kind words

Jason - thank you Sir!

I love the guilt one for inducing the feeling of making me want to actually get up and help. Absolutely beautiful.

I loved these, I give art class to addicts under extreme poverty conditions. I see a lot of depression, and I also enjoy seeing, and showing them, the many ways sadness can become art....thanks! By the way, thankyou so much for leaving a comment on my son´s page (Drawings by Giaco), I know for a fact that it keeps him going...thanks again! Clau (www.artvsaddiction.blogspot.com)
