New beginnings. Second chances. Starting over. All of these can make a person emotional. Whether it’s good or bad, we all feel something intense when these situations arise. There are many ways to channel emotions: art, music, sports, or writing. Music and art are my main ways of dealing with hard times. Both hold a special place in my heart and have the power to tell stories. In Pens + Headsets, I will tell a story with comics based on songs. Each post will be a one-page comic, along with a portion of lyrics from a song. I’ll share all these songs through a Spotify playlist so you can listen along as you read. The comics will interpret these songs through the story of an ordinary girl who falls in love. Watch and listen to her story.
