Looking at these beautiful drawings, you see stories. Some are clear, some left untold, but all touching. Nine months ago Bored Panda introduced you to the deep drawings of Japanese illustrator Avogado6. The artist chooses to keep most of his identity a mystery, and not much is known about the person behind the illustrations. "I am an ordinary person who likes chemistry," he writes on his Twitter profile, but as you will see, his works filled with profound meaning are far from ordinary.

Avogado6 manages to create sentimental, vivid images by drawing feelings and emotions that are hard to describe with words. The drawing ideas might look simple at first glance, but they have incredibly deep meanings and, usually, are quite dark.

The artist has over a million followers on Twitter and has even published three books.

Or another darker interpretation is their parents are they type of couple so in love with each other the child gets forgotten and seen as little more than an accessory.

My son has been autistic since birth. Being born different is not a bad thing. It just means that some things are more challenging for you. 😊

Don't make this political. Also, not taking an abortion could kill a mother or tear apart a family. Don't just think of it on one side.

This one hits far too close to the truth. Working on that side of the desk this picture perfectly sums up how it can feel taking verbal blow after blow while keeping a pleasant tone and smile on your face because it's that or loose your job.

Even if you die, there is always something that remains after you. These lycorises are beautiful - even if they grow up on a dead body. For me, despite all of grimness on this picture, it is still full of hope.

I see it as an isolation in her own world. The girl is so concentrated on her plans and goals (documents in her arms, money attached to her oxygen bottle) that she doesn't have time to enjoy the world outside her box and just live on. Maybe she even doesn't want to because it feels safer not to go out?
