If you haven't seen them, check it out, but first make sure you shut all the windows and hide your supply of nooses. The book is called Ode to Happiness, and features ink-blot paintings that look like someone cried all over them (much like the letters I used to send to my parents from sleep-away camp, blotted with Sprite-tears, begging for them to come pick me up) with messages like "I draw a hot sorrow bath."
