Words and phrases are more hurtful than some are aware. This work is informed and inspired by Project Semicolon, an advocacy campaign promoting mental health awareness. A semicolon allows an author to extend a sentence, and as a mental health metaphor the semicolon suggests that a person can change their fate by just keeping going. The black and red symbolize how dark a person’s mind can get when they hear negative things said about themselves or others. The surrounding colors are more positive phrases. Doodles connect both negative and positive phrases, and repetition suggests these phrases are heard often in one’s life.
