"As much as we hate to admit it, we're all very vulnerable. The SUN Project is a four-person art collaboration that focuses on the destructive and painful emotions caused by the modern society we often hide. Fronted by Mimi N, the group produces illustrations almost daily and have already built a 164,000-strong following. From loneliness to depression and social media addiction, the SUN Project perfectly captures the feelings you've probably felt on quite a few rainy Sunday evenings in their dark pictures.

"I've been drawing since 2007, and I started by making comics and drawing various creepy pictures as part of my epilepsy therapy," Mimi N told Bored Panda. Inspired by daydreaming and the internet, Mimi N said that the SUN Project isn't only about the dark emotions and social issues that we endure. It's also a homage to wonderful sceneries and fashion. "I just draw what I love, [the] boundary between life and death, beauty and ugliness, smiles and sadness. I love exploring [different] art styles and fashion trends."

"People usually know me from the SUN Project, and I am grateful for all the kind comments," the artist added. "I'm glad people can relate to it, but these social problems illustrations are only a small part of me. I also love drawing anime, fanart, my own comics and much more. I wish my art can make the world a better place."

Scroll down to check out their incredible images, depicting problems with society, and who knows, maybe they will help you to come to terms with your own emotions. At least for a little while.

The artist is Japanese so it's not about social media, it's about idols. Idols in Japan are a very specific type of entertainer and they all have to portray a certain ideology to fit in/be liked. The "real" girl here is just playing the idol game and trying to beat it, hence the game controller.

I think what it is trying to convey is how often arranged marriages are still a thing, even if the people involved are in love with someone else. They will just seem to happily go along with it because it is "the best choice" for that person.

Not 100% sure but my guess is the guy who is in love with her is wearing a conbini (convenience store) uniform, (kinda reminiscent of Lawson's uniform) so my guess is it's a parable for marrying for money or comfort and not for love. Or perhaps it is because he is literally blue collar? Just a guess though.

It can also relate to the fact that perhaps there is a triangle of love but one wins the hand of the other but the one that wasn't chosen's heart still beats for that person and always will. I've been there, I know and I was the one that was not chosen.... I've moved on but I don't forget!

I will be downvoted for this. The illustration would make more sense if it showed an animal that's hunted for "sport" only (trophies), and not for food. The populations of wild animals such as deer and elk are tracked very carefully, and limits are set accordingly each year. Responsible hunters abide by these limits, respect the habitat, and use the meat to help feed themselves and their families. Hunters who are after trophies only are irresponsible pieces of shit who have no respect for nature, and are the ones we should be targeting.

People who cheat only see their happiness and how beautiful each other are. They perceive what they are going through to be true love. The spotlight, the colour in their lives...They neglect to consider those they cheat on but selfishly hang on to those anyway hence the hands are dominating and clinging. As they hang on they also would technically have one hand tied behind their backs for their new relationship. A cheater never gives fully even though they can justify what they perceive as true love.

I actually went through this not too long ago. I felt like I had to do and say things that people would like me for. For example, I would laugh at something I didn’t find funny, or I would examine other people to see what others liked about them and I would sort of act like those people.I was so full of self-doubt and I thought my normal self wasn’t good enough, but what I’ve come to realize is that you don’t want to be liked by the wrong people. If you aren’t yourself, then people are going to like you for the wrong reasons.
