Some of the best and brightest illustrators from Duncan of Jordanstone have expressed their feelings about the Independence Referendum in the only way they know how.
They've put pen to paper to reflect their hopes, fears and even apathy, and to show how they feel the debate is affecting society.
Their pictures appeared in The Guardian newspaper recently, prompting much praise and debate, but we wanted to find out a bit more about the thinking that went into them.
We spoke to nine of the students, pictured below with their tutor Dr Michael Peter, about how they approached the subject matter and how their pictures reflect their feelings about Scotland's looming date with destiny.
Although the vote was split (six for yes, three for no), the students all agreed that their votes mattered and they felt - many for the first time - fully engaged in the political process.
Several had actively sought information to inform their views and proponents of both sides frequently cited claims from the SNP's White Paper in their exchanges.
The student were bursting with opinions, theories and questions and relished the opportunity to debate amongst each other.
This is what these young Scots had to say.
Nancy Wallace, 22, Yes
"I saw this opportunity as a platform to put my views across. The quote I used has been attributed to Nelson Mandela and, for me, it just sums it up.
"It's an opportunity we should take and not be scared of. When people have the ballot paper in their hand they should only see that as a good thing."
Lauren McNab, 20, Yes
"I initially tried to keep mine balanced but ended up showing my own personal view.
"It's a very optimistic view and not angry in any way. I see it as a positive parting and I really believe that both sides could be better off separate."
Kat Hughes, 21, No
"Both sides of the campaign are guilty of bombarding people with useless information. I was watching one of the many debates on TV with my mum and she said, 'it's like a broken record'.
"She's right. The politicians are just going round and round again saying the same things. They're saying this is a momentous decision and adding to the burden that we feel."
Jordan Hunter, 21, Yes
"I am using the Queen to represent the union and the image is exploring what it's like to have a pet playing a subservient role, possibly a bit like Scotland. I wanted to show that independence is a possibility because the Corgi is escaping, it's free now."
Jill McDonald, 21, No
"I don't feel comfortable with the idea of building walls between people. I don't think we should just be thinking of how to make life better for Scottish people, what about making life better for people in England who need help too?
"I hate what this debate has done to our country. I'm scared to put things on Facebook showing how I feel because I know there will be a backlash."
Angela Kirkwood, 21, Yes
"My image is based on a claim that was made by the Better Together campaign about the banking crisis, which made me angry. I see it as Westminster's fault but they want to take credit for saving us.
"It's the poor people who have suffered and been hurt by the banking crisis and austerity. It's been so horrible to see the effect that these things have had on society. I feel like so many people have been degraded and humiliated."
Paula Caffrey, 23, Yes
"I wanted to be bold in my image and didn't want to be too heavy on facts. This represents an eye to Scotland's future. We are strong enough and big enough and we have enough money.
"I think some people are scared of change but I wanted to say that something better is possible if you just open your eyes to the future."
Anna Doherty, 21, No
"My image shows a family representing England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Scotland has packed up his stuff and is saying he wants to go in a new direction but there's no guarantees.
"He could be walking off a cliff for all he knows and, in my opinion, that's probably what will happen. We're walking into the unknown and it's not good compared to what we already have."
Eve Spears, 21, Yes
"I was thinking a lot about Trident when I made mine as that's a crucial issue for me. It's been dumped in Scotland but nobody really wants it here. It's essentially our bomb.
"There are also a lot of people reducing Scotland to stereotypes so I wanted to turn that on its head a bit and highlight just how big this decision is for us. I'm finding it so exciting and I'm happy to take this decision."
