Dark And Thought-Provoking Comics About Love And Relationships
Love is beautiful. Until its over… Not the happiest of ideas I know, but the one that really got me thinking. It’s the same thought that inspired Gypsie Raleigh, an artist, author, poet and playwright from Portland, Oregon, to create a series of rather grim and thought-provoking comics.
“Sometimes life leaves me speechless,” Raleigh told Bored Panda. “When I fail to find the words, I try to find an image that can speak in my silence. My drawings have been inspired by everything from the deaths of people close to me, anxiety, and my own broken heart–to seeing an old bird cage or having a bad work day. I turned to art, because my parents raised me off grid in the Mount Hood Wilderness, and there wasn’t anything better to do. At the time, I was just sad that I didn’t have friends. Now, it’s a way of life.”
I suggest you approach these with an open mind, not necessarily as the truth, but as something to think over.
This got you sad? No worries, here are illustrations that’ll teach you how to fix that.
