Between The Lines


        A decade after an overwhelming mental health crisis shook his family, illustrator Francesco Ciccolella stumbles upon a series of sketchbook drawings that prompt him to contemplate a world of complex emotions. What if there’s more to these sketches than meets the eye?

        “Between The Lines” is an autobiographical visual essay that explores what it’s like when a loved one is caught in the grip of despair. Giving a poignant and intimate glimpse into his emotional turmoil and coping, Ciccolella weaves images and words to create a poetical meditation on mental health and the act of drawing. Join him on this beautifully personal journey of self-reflection.
