Wow, what a difficult subject to tackle in an illustration. Be careful of reproduction in the paper, I can't tell what some of the images are off to the right of the frame. Whenever I do illustrations I try to K.I.S.S. and use a few universal symbols creatively. You got a tough job on this one. Illustrations aren't one of my strengths.

What specific mental illness is the focus? Right now, the color and the top right corner makes me think of hospitals. The central image and the hadn just give me the idea of fear or panic/too stresed.
Other things to think about, what are you trying to say about the soecific mental illness?

What is the specific illness?

I like this image a lot and I think it conveys paranoia, agitation, confusion...really well.

I think this will look great on the web. I worry that a newspaper reproduction may not do it justice but it should get some attention either way.

It did ok in the paper. the thing and it is indeed toilet paper we print on.. thanks for the words of support. The image did indeed get some feedback negative and positive. At least I made people feel something...
