Nobody likes an exploded head girl

There are so many things going inside my head because I have so much time to think about every problem existed in this world or how this universe was created or how Taylor Swift come up with so many amazing songs or how unfair elementary school system is, under my blanket, because our government was kind enough to extend the holidays, good work government boys! I'm voting you when I turn 18. Sometimes I keep everything lock in my head. But sometimes they're so out of control that they might explode my head and I don't want my head to be exploded because nobody likes a exploded head girl, nobody shouldn't.

So when those "sometimes-I-feel-like-my-head-will-explode" moments come up, I know the cure. I have this quality that I can turn normal looking objects into something some people call weird (I call it wonderful) and that's art. Count everything in that's related to art. I draw/paint/create whatever comes into my mind and save my head from exploding because I told you nobody like a exploded head girl. 

 I'm tired of people posting "Life is a fairytale because.." on various social media I use but the only truth about life know is LIFE IS NOT A FAIRYTALE GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT!! So I came up with this, Life is a fairytale and you're the cursed princess. Now go enjoy. 
You're cursed and you've to find a cure for yourself to survive live. That's what life is all about. At this point, I feel like this could be one of the greatest quote of history because it's not usual that someone says this great words, right? 

 
It's a zine and I made this for Noor. I just realized that zines are the best way to draw your emotions on a paper than anything else. You just come up with a concept, draw it down, make it look like a small magazine and impress everyone around you, win-win! And it helps you to keep your head away from exploding. And remember, nobody likes an exploded head girl.


 So anytime you feel like there are so many thoughts inside your head and they're going to explode, find a way to get them out, I found art my cure, you can find something else. Maybe reading, cooking or it could be anything. But just don't let your thoughts explode your head because nobody likes an exploded head girl.

  1. Aree these are amazing. Especially the butterfly one. It's SO beautiful and colourful and catchy. Gosh, if I spotted this piece at a shop I would have bought it immediately. Literally. This is soo good. And btw being a cursed princess doesn't sound too bad. I thought we're all cursed anyway (karma!). Haha!

  12. When I was reading this I thought about my favorite TV show, One Tree Hill. There's an episode on the show where a girl Peyton, who is an artist, is struggling with life and love and getting her art rejected by critics, and just..everything life brings. She thinks everything is hopeless and that her art is pointless when her friend Lucas says to her, "Your art matters."

    That's what I thought when I saw your drawings, and read your thoughts behind you gift. Your art matters. I think it's beautiful, and I love the line 'the stars conspired against us.' It's just, lovely. You've got talent, girl. :)

  13. Haha that response to "Life is a Fairytale" is hilarious! My cure for keeping my head from exploding was running. Unfortunately I'm not running anymore, so now my head AND my heart is about to explode. Hopefully I will start running soon again though so I can keep all my brains contained safely where they are supposed to be.

  20. Sketching is a great stress reliever and for me, writing is therapeutic as well. That's a really sweet gesture for your sister, Areeba. I'm sure she loved that lovely zine you made. :)
