A printed sheet with a hand-written self-care checklist titled "Everything is awful and I'm not okay," containing questions and suggestions for personal well-being. It's designed to be read and interacted with, offering prompts for basic self-care actions such as hydration, eating, resting, and moving, as well as emotional checks and comforts like listening to a favorite song or changing into comfortable clothes.

Windows to My Soul: An Artistic Exploration

Created in 2019, “Windows to My Soul” is my first venture into zine-making. This collection of digital illustrations, crafted with Procreate and compiled in Adobe InDesign, explores the theme of eyes as gateways to deeper understanding and emotion.

This zine invites viewers to contemplate how art can express and evoke emotion, bringing about a sense of connection and understanding. I encourage you to download and explore “Windows to My Soul” – experience a quiet reflection through the windows of artistic expression.

The image shows a set of visual instructions for folding a mini zine, laid out on a wooden surface. Surrounding the paper with the instructions are a pair of scissors, two pens, a mechanical pencil, a small potted cactus, and a cup of coffee with foam on top, suggesting a creative, DIY workspace. The instructions themselves include diagrams and text for each step, and the overall theme suggests a craft or hobbyist environment.
