We see a person with a knife in their head. This knife represents mental illness as is written on the blade. We see another person walk by with a knife in their head as well, saying you're not alone. During the pandemic, teenagers and others alike have seen an increase in mental health issues. The problem with this is that sometimes, this is still a topic that not many people like to address and it is a difficult thing to talk about. I myself have struggled with severe depression for almost four years now, but I am one of the lucky people with a lovely support system, and I realize that for some this is not the case. It is therefore my wish for the future that those who struggle with mental health issues, know they are not alone, and that there is always some help available for them.

Earth is running a day car that is fostering themes and principles such as inclusivity, love, communication, etc and removing negative themes such as exclusivity, patriarchy, capitalism, fast-fashion, exploitation. This is to represent that we as humans need to foster these principles for or future.

This cartoon comments on the idea of the Gender Binary as well as Discourses surrounding heteronormativity that have been enforced in our everyday life. It is the idea that men have to be masculine and always associate them selves with things we consider “manly” like only wearing blue and pants or appearing strong, brave and violent. This challenges that narrative, here we have an icon of a human wearing a skirt on the toilet door, because of heteronormativity, we assume that this means ONLY WOMEN, cause society has made us think only females can wear dresses or Express femininity... yet it doesn’t say “only girls” on the door, hence we can interpret it the way we want to. It is a new era in the world, where humans should be able to express their Gender in any way they want to, it aims to promote diversity and the acceptance as well as let him of old traditional ideas that may be homophobic and sexist.

The vaccines have recently opened for under 18s but many parents/anti vax people don’t want kids to get vaccinated because it’s “unsafe” but they don’t mind their teens smoking/drinking/sexting/etc. The idea basically critiques the lack of trust in medicine and misinformation as well as the unsafe expectations and environments teens are pushed into.

Two hands holding up an earth. The world is broken, sad animals, pollution, gender issues and more. We can't change the past, but we can start now. Palestinian flag wrapping around one hand, cancer ribbon wrapping around the other. A deep Crack through the Earth. This is to show that we have to accept what has happened, but we must start now. It should leave the viewer with a lot of thought. Will submit a refined version later

We see a person with a knife in their head. This knife represents mental illness as is written on the blade. We see another person walk by with a knife in their head as well, saying you're not alone. During the pandemic, teenagers and others alike have seen an increase in mental health issues. The problem with this is that sometimes, this is still a topic that not many people like to address and it is a difficult thing to talk about. I myself have struggled with severe depression for almost four years now, but I am one of the lucky people with a lovely support system, and I realize that for some this is not the case. It is therefore my wish for the future that those who struggle with mental health issues, know they are not alone, and that there is always some help available for them.

Earth is running a day car that is fostering themes and principles such as inclusivity, love, communication, etc and removing negative themes such as exclusivity, patriarchy, capitalism, fast-fashion, exploitation. This is to represent that we as humans need to foster these principles for or future.

This cartoon comments on the idea of the Gender Binary as well as Discourses surrounding heteronormativity that have been enforced in our everyday life. It is the idea that men have to be masculine and always associate them selves with things we consider “manly” like only wearing blue and pants or appearing strong, brave and violent. This challenges that narrative, here we have an icon of a human wearing a skirt on the toilet door, because of heteronormativity, we assume that this means ONLY WOMEN, cause society has made us think only females can wear dresses or Express femininity... yet it doesn’t say “only girls” on the door, hence we can interpret it the way we want to. It is a new era in the world, where humans should be able to express their Gender in any way they want to, it aims to promote diversity and the acceptance as well as let him of old traditional ideas that may be homophobic and sexist.

The vaccines have recently opened for under 18s but many parents/anti vax people don’t want kids to get vaccinated because it’s “unsafe” but they don’t mind their teens smoking/drinking/sexting/etc. The idea basically critiques the lack of trust in medicine and misinformation as well as the unsafe expectations and environments teens are pushed into.

Two hands holding up an earth. The world is broken, sad animals, pollution, gender issues and more. We can't change the past, but we can start now. Palestinian flag wrapping around one hand, cancer ribbon wrapping around the other. A deep Crack through the Earth. This is to show that we have to accept what has happened, but we must start now. It should leave the viewer with a lot of thought. Will submit a refined version later
