The Unspoken Truth is a series of comics created by Venezuelan artist Maria Guadarrama that feature a unique blend of emotional humor, taking the reader from lighthearted chuckles across to deep philosophical musings.

“I think the kind of people who enjoy my comics are the ones who like to take a look inside of them and the origin of their feelings,” Maria told Bored Panda. “Introspective and sensitive people, people who are in love.”

Maria works as a graphic designer as her day job, illustrating for The Unspoken Truth as a part-time job and hobby in the evenings. Drawing is her passion and has been since early childhood, and she takes her inspiration from all the things that happen to her in her daily life.

Now living in Santiago, Chile, she feels a deep sadness about the way things have gone in her homeland. “It makes me feel hopeless and frustrated, especially when I think of my parents who are still living there,” she told us. “When I was in Venezuela, I worked for a one of the most important newspapers there. But since the people who owned the newspaper were from the government, they where very specific about the subjects I was allowed to draw. I couldn’t draw about politics or migration or economy.”

“There was a censorship of my cartoons, because the power of doodling is big, I guess. Drawings make us approach knowledge the way a child does. On the other hand, in South America in general there are a lot of illustrators with a strong voice and strong opinions, especially in Argentina and Mexico.”

While Maria says that she always tends to feel like an outsider, no matter where she goes, she is passionate about her country and longs for better days. You can read a beautiful and powerful comic about her thoughts on the situation in Venezuela here, it is a real eye-opener.
