Mental Illness is a serious subject that artist Toby Allen, Designer and Illustrator, describes in a novel way, making Anxiety, Depression, Schizophrenia and many other below, into corporeal beings.  The following is a quote from Allen "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, raise awareness and make them appear more manageable as physical entities".  If you enlarge the images below, you can read and understand a bit more of about the symptoms, of the various illnesses.
