Shawn Coss is an Ohio based artist with an amazing art portfolio. The artist has worked for such clients as the horror king Stephen King himself, creates Cyanide & Happiness cartoons and even has his own clothing line. In 2016 he decided to alter the path of his art and the results took the world by surprise.

“In 2016 I created the mental health series, Inktober Illness, as part of the annual Inktober series which completely altered my art direction to focus more on artwork that helps create a conversation on mental health. My art has been all over the internet and bodies of many fans and it’s still spreading. It’s been life-changing, to say the least, that an artist from Ohio is able to connect with so many who feel like they don’t have a voice” – Shawn Coss
