Exploring the possibilities of the afterlife, this artist creates comics that are sincerely heart touching.
Death comes in mysterious ways, and while we can’t know for sure when or how we’ll die, the fact is that we have to make peace with it.
At a point in time, we’ll all leave this world for the afterlife. Understanding this, Jenny Jinya creates comics that teaches us the value of life while reminding us of our mortality.
His first comic is about a very good boy who died a lot sooner than expected, and the other is about an equally good lady whose black fur prevented a lot of people from getting to know her.
While these works of art present a difficult subject matter, Jenny present “death” as something hopeful, rather than devastating. And who knows, perhaps it isn’t as bad as we picture it!
The artist explains she can’t fully decide if death is just a state or the beginning of a new adventure:
“Who knows. I’m not the one to answer that. But I like to imagine death as a person who is just doing their job. People hate them for what they’re doing, but in the end, someone has to do it. I like to imagine Death to be a gentle and insightful being.”
Here’s a viral short story of the black cat, courtesy of Jenny Jinya.
The perception of black cats varies between cultures, but in most societies, they are generally associated with darkness, bad faith, and death. However, artist Jenny Jinya wants to change that. To her, the color of the fur doesn’t matter.
Please have a heart for black pets in general, animals don’t deserve this kind of hostility.
Speaking to Bored Panda, Jenny said:
“There are dozens of posters and infographics with various statistics about abandoned or abused animals. Many know the problems, but such information is quickly forgotten.”
“I try to give a voice to the victims with my comics. I want the affected pets to be able to tell their own stories. I hope I can raise awareness this way.”
“For all I know, we could be part of the biggest MMORPG in the whole universe, but there’s no way of knowing it.”
“Now, go and hug your pet!”
Here’s similar comics that Jenny made earlier, which continue to melt people’s hearts online.
Expectedly, internet users started relating to the black fur comic by sharing photos of their kitties:
