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.

In a world where everyone believes money is everything, people will break their backs to earn more.

Everyone has a breaking point while trying to vigorously acquire wealth. It’s just a matter of time.

If this image teaches anything, it’s that sometimes you have to think outside of the box and be different.

You can waste your life trying to fit in, or you can branch out on your own and be unique and awesome.

Growing up, you probably felt like your parents were pressuring you into getting that perfect A in school.

It’s one thing to encourage kids to do their best, but pushing a child too far is wrong, plain and simple.

Notice the broken noose on the upper left-hand of the drawing and the black heart on the boy’s shirt.

It shows others, who had their broken hearts patched up, now helping someone in serious need of help.

When it comes to friends, watch your back is what this illustration is trying to warn all of us about.

They might cozy up to you in order to take a selfie, but you never know when the claws will come out.

Despite all the anti-bullying campaigns out there, kids seem to be getting meaner every school year.

It’s not just kids. Even grownups bully each other without realizing their actions have consequences.

As kids, we always look forward to growing up, but when we become adults we realize it’s not that easy.

When we grow up, we realize we just can’t do whatever we want because we have tons of bills to pay.

We’ve all experienced moments when we let some down and they made us feel horrible about it.

It might be a parent or a boss, but there’s no excuse for letting anyone drag you through the mud either.
