Illustrator Visualizes Mental Illnesses As Monsters

Dealing with a mental illness means identifying and handling that little monster lurking around inside your mind, a monster waiting for the most inopportune time to make an appearance.

Illustrator Toby Allen decided to deal with his anxieties by imagining how they would look as monsters, visualizing these hard to describe (and even harder to understand) creatures that wreak havoc on our state of mind.

We first featured Toby's artwork here on Neatorama a few years ago, and since then he has reworked his original designs a bit and given more mental illnesses a visual life, along with a very internet appropriate disclaimer:

The artwork is not at all intended to make light of these conditions but instead is intended to give these intangible mental illnesses some substance and make them appear more managable as physical entities.
