When I was sixteen I started having depressive and manic episodes. Talking about my feelings was too scary for me, so drawing became my way of surviving and expressing what I was going through. That's how I started visualizing bipolar disorder through drawings.
I recently started a project called "Phases", it's a compilation of drawings I've been making since 2011 where I draw bipolar disorder's symptoms.
