96 Dark Pics Show What’s Wrong With Our Society, And You Won’t Get Some Without Looking At The Titles
"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.

Every little thing you say
Behind your back
Four of us
A lot of Bored Pandas would be the girl on the right...
Yelling at your child for bad grades isn't the answer. Understanding that your child isn't Einstein and helping them with things they find difficult, is.
The real me
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.
It is not like that for everyone. I am much happier as an adult!
This was often me, people would go and the rare times they’d ask me to hang out I couldn’t because I had gotten a B on an assignment and mother wanted an A...
I am home
I'm almost sure I'm missing the meaning, but this one seems to be pretty nice and relatively happy. Personally a room full of books and animals sounds like a good alternative to the real world.
I had the chance to grow up with a mother that helped us learning our lessons and make sure we could have remedial teaching when lost, while she never pressured us for good grades. Just made sure we did our best.
I love this one. Been there and learned - if alive, don't even think about giving up.
Out of the box
The picture of love, money , good food, plenty to eat and drink and a wonderful house is not what life is for 90% of the people of the world.
When the right people get sad, everyone cares. When the "wrong" people do, no one does.
Please, love me
This is why I don't have Instagram or use Twitter...Facebook only to keep in touch with friends and family living far away. Best decision I made after I realized how much time I was spending on SM.
Physical, psychological, financial abuse takes its toll. Self harm too...
you think someone is beautiful at first, but their really a horrible person
This is me. Please don't look at me or try to talk to me. I'm fine. Really.
I hate it when people say cyberbullying isn't real. Just because it's behind a screen doesn't make it any less significant. If someone sent you a picture of your dog being brutally murdered, would you shrug it off because it's on your phone?
This is horrible and it is more horrible to find out that this crime is still very strong in Vietnam and China
The child's future
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.
A good child
This is exactly how it is! I was/am a good child and it so hard to break out of that.
I am okay
"Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words leave psychological wounds that never heal."
I like how the one on the left had to tear the thorns off the stem before giving the flower to the girl - he sacrificed more it seems, than the one on the right.
There are days I dream of this-- I wish I was a separate person so I could beat the crap out of myself.
My true love
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.
This one is very sad. Some people just take outside beauty as a priority and forgot they have an inside too
