Mental Artist Shawn Coss is a dark art artist from Ohio, USA. He’s been working at his craft professionally for 9 years, as an independent artist, as well as an artist for the widely popular webcomic series, Cyanide & Happiness. He’s also a co-owner and artist for Ohio based lifestyle brand, Any Means Necessary clothing.
Though he’s been known for his association with Cyanide & Happiness, in 2016 he created the mental health series, Inktober Illness, as part of the annual Inktober series which completely altered his art direction to focus more on artwork that helps create a conversation on mental health. His 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.
