Sow Ay's illustrations are stark reminders of the trauma that most of us silently endure, while harboring mental illnesses.
Sow Ay has been living under a cloud of gloom for as long as he can remember. His mental condition takes him to a dark and weird headspace which requires a lot of effort to get out of. Soon he found a respite from all these bitter thoughts by focusing on a creative channel: drawing. With the help of these illustrations, he explains how unimaginably bad things can get.
It's that one friend you're not very fond of.
When the world around you is doing nothing to help.
It must be killing you to put her through this.
This is exactly how he feels.
You need to believe them in order to be of help.
This is the only thing that will keep you going.
Is this what we are working towards?
They come and go.
It's all in your head.
Don't give into what he wants from you.
This is what the weight feels like.
You need to get over this.
Let's not make it a habit for them.
You need to understand this.
You can't get over this pain.
You're not needed here right now.
Thanks for asking!
This is really sad!
The resounding cry of agony.
How do you help someone with such issues?
Always remember that it's not your fault.
People often misjudge them.
You shouldn't be embracing it.
You're constantly fighting for yourself.
