We love annual Halloween drawing challenges, where artists all over the world turn their skills to the dark side during October.

Just like every year, the participating artists are given prompts for every day of the month to follow, but illustrator Shawn Coss has decided to use the month of October to depict the frightening realities of a range of mental health conditions.

The results are these eerie and quite frightening illustrations, capturing experiences of fear, torment or isolation.
