This zine was inspired by my mother's battle with cancer. I wanted to portray females in a wide range of emotions. The images used were found throughout the internet. I tried to find photos around the world, not just based in the United States. I display the image, the emotion and the description. It is important to understand empathy, our ability to feel what others are feeling and understand what they are going through. In my print work, I am most proud and happy with this zine.

The back side of zine has quotes that I found fit the idea of feelings and emotions.
As cliché as it may sound, it means so much to me on so many levels. I am engulf with a never ending curiosity in our emotions. The sky is blue, the grass is green and everyone cries. There is a copy of it at the University of Connecticut Design Zine Library.
