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!

1: an abusive relationship. This one shows physical abuse. the man is the abuser and the woman is the victim. 2: A healthy relationship. This one doesn't need explaining. 3: Is kind of confusing. I think it shows another kind of abuse. This would be mentally or emotional abuse. The man could explode with anger over everything the woman does. These are just my theories so these might be wrong.

Second is that both get benefits, flowers need bees and bees need flowers

This is a lot deeper than it seems at first glance. The first couple as an axe and a log, while the two go hand in hand, is it a metaphor for how he chips away at her piece by piece? Something darker? The flowers and hive seems the most positive since they benefit each other (bees get food, flowers pollinated). The last is...well....Coke and Mentos go hand in hand if you want a nice explosion.

The first one isn't necessarily about abuse it is saying he takes away from her it could be any form of abuse meaning mental verbal, physical, it could be anything or it could just mean the relationship for her is all give and he is the only one who benefits from the relationship. The second one is pretty self explanatory, meaning they both benefit from each other. The third however is not about abuse the third is about compatibility, they do not get along together because of their conflicting personalities, they together as the saying goes are like oil and water they don't mix.

This one spoke to me a lot... No matter how much love you may have for each other, there are relationships that make you flourish, or chip away at you. Or you can love each other but be unable to truly connect with each other because you're just not meant to go together....

I could see the third one either way. A lot of people are saying explosive, but they don't really explode together, they just fizz and bubble a whole lot. My first thought on that one was attraction, intense and exciting. But they are the only ones not holding hands, I'm not sure which direction the artist was going for.

Because it's a female artist so it's going to be from her perspective, I don't think anyone is disadvantaged in the 3rd one.
