Monster

V.S.’s Monster

Val’s monster was described as “cute” by her fellow group members, but her monster is far from that. On her monster’s body, you will see the moon, stars, and the sun representing the day and night feeling of her mental illness. The sharp teeth destroys her voice when she is around unfamiliar people and his sharp claw cut her deep making her wish she was never born. This “cute” curly hair only covers half of his head – representing the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Half of the hair is missing from his head from the stress of pulling out his hair. The strained cloudy wide eyes are a representation of her complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He is the size of a cell phone, but makes a huge impact to her day.
