The Unspoken Truth is a series of webcomics created by Venezuelan artist Maria Guadarrama that feature a unique blend of emotional humor, taking the reader from lighthearted chuckles across to deep philosophical musings.

“I think the kind of people who enjoy my comics are the ones who like to take a look inside of them and the origin of their feelings,” Maria told Bored Panda. “Introspective and sensitive people, people who are in love.”

Maria works as a graphic designer as her day job, illustrating for The Unspoken Truth as a part-time job and hobby in the evenings. Art is her passion and has been since early childhood, and she takes her drawing inspiration from all the things that happen to her in her daily life. Maybe that's why these relatable comics hit home to so many.

Now living in Santiago, Chile, she feels a deep sadness about the way things have gone in her homeland. “It makes me feel hopeless and frustrated, especially when I think of my parents who are still living there,” she told us. “When I was in Venezuela, I worked for one of the most important newspapers there. But since the people who owned the newspaper were from the government, they were very specific about the subjects I was allowed to draw. I couldn't draw about politics or migration or economy.”

“There was a censorship of my funny comics because the power of doodling is big, I guess. Drawings make us approach knowledge in the way a child does. On the other hand, in South America, in general, there are a lot of illustrators with a strong voice and strong opinions, especially in Argentina and Mexico.”

While Maria says that she always tends to feel like an outsider, no matter where she goes, she is passionate about her country and longs for better days. You can read a beautiful and powerful comic about her thoughts on the situation in Venezuela here, it is a real eye-opener. She also has many similar works on her pages, which you can find linked below. Scroll down to check out her cute drawings on being in love and searching for those good relationships, and let us know what you think in the comments!

I've always wanted to be a dancer, but my parents always thought it was a phase. I've been learning dance from kpop videos and other tutorials.

Yes same! I’ve been singing and dancing and my parents laugh and say “She’ll grow out of it”. I’m 17 and I’m afraid it’s too late for me to start training. There’s an online competition based from Soompi. They partner with kpop industries (two years ago with JYP and last year with Cube). It’s all video based but hey, let’s try it together this year. It’s called Rising Legends and begins mid August. The girl who won last year is on Produce 48

The best part of getting older: You've learned these lessons. It's a great freedom.

RJ Berg
Community Member

Just because you are older doesn't mean all have learned that. I may know the reasons why but I might keep doing something out of habit as a learned behavior and or I may even Understand what and why, but still do it because mainly self worth may not be where it should be, or being raised in a disciplined family and that was the emphasis, or guilt, or not allowing myself permission. It can be a terrible cycle. It's not easy but I have to want to Choose to make myself a priority. It can be a struggle to change as well.

Fine with the first 3 but my parents are pushing me into the 4th. My mom won't stop bugging me that I should just get a regular job, while I want my own business. I know a regular job would suffocate me, I'd feel unappreciated and underpaid, wasting huge chunks of my time.
