You can’t really put a finger on depression, it’s an elusive feeling that’s hard to understand and let alone be explained to others. But some illustrators did try to do just that, and the results are pretty terrifying.

Bored Panda‘s staff has dug up a ton of illustrations by various artists who have portrayed this state of mind, and here we bring you 10 most striking ones.
