Death is a thing every human being has to make peace with because nobody lives, lives forever, and lasts that long. It takes us and our loved ones away in mysterious ways that we can not know. Coming to terms with it and further exploring the possibilities of the afterlife, artist Jenny Jinya have created and shared a few comics, and they’re very touching.
One of Jenny’s comics is about a good boy who passed away a lot sooner than you’d expect, and the other is about a good lady whose black fur prevented a lot of people from getting to know her.
Here is “Good boy” comic that pretty much wrecked our lives. In it, a puppy who’s been abandoned by the side of the road and is visited by death, saying it’s his time to go.
This is the Black cat comic:
After Jenny shared the Black cat comic on social media, it quickly went viral. For this reason, she decided to make a sequel to it.
Although these works deal with a complicated subject matter, Jenny has found a way to present death as something hopeful, rather than demoralizing. Besides, she wants to change the perception of black cats. For her, the color of the fur doesn’t matter, and black cats are awesome creatures.
“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,” Jenny told Bored Panda. “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.”
Luckily, things are beginning to change for the better. Many people start to adopt black cats because they think the stigma around them might make it harder for them to get adopted.
