For my Zine book I decided to do the life cycle of a sunflower seed as a metaphor for happiness and sadness. I started out with a tiny seed in the soil until it grows bigger and bigger into this big cartoonish sunflower. As soon as the sunflower is grown and full of life I showed it being cut. This is a representation of sadness because to me my happiness usually takes time to built up and once it is there and I realized it is there it ends. But this isn’t the end of the world to me I chose the Life cycle because it is a cycle it’ll go around and in time it will start over.
