.The art of pretending. by Nonnetta .The art of pretending. by Nonnetta
Pretend that life is always good.
Pretend that you don't want to hide in your room and cry till your eyes hurt and reflect about life unfairness and people attitudes.
Put a smile on your face and go on.

--

This drawing was made in september 2007.
I couldn't be satisfied with any of my attempts to work on it. Now I think I've achivied a good enough result.
Hope you like it!

I must say it was inspired by the web - in fact it's a pic I've seen around once or twice. I just want to say I didn't (don't) want to copy anything, I just like the idea, it's simple and straightforward.
So I really hope no one would mind ^^

Simple, but very true. I think a lot of people, including me, can relate, no matter if the idea is original or not, I think you did a pretty good job!

Sai,credo che se non scrivissi dei commenti il senso di ciò che ci vuoi trasmettere difficilmente ci giungerebbe(siamo un po' troppo distratti dalle immagini)ed proprio "dove finiscono le immagini,inizia la filosofia"

Scusate,se ho sbagliato la citazione,ma penso sia abbastanza chiara.

Si, credo che i miei lavori si compongano sia di immagini che di testo. Sarebebro incompleti se non ci fosse almeno una parola a illuminare il cammnino.
E non avresti potuto scegliere citazione migliore ^^

you may feel
alone
sad
tired
fear
anger
love
confused
mad
and other good or bad feelings

but u will not show wat u feel always to other people even some time to ur close frndz


u wil show Strength when u feel tired

u will smile when u feel like crying

u will make them believe that ur fine

u will Pretend and mask ur face with other feeling

so they will not be wary about u

coz when they smile u will smile and forget every sad things

A different mask for different days.
Those see straight forward, right into the
fake, non-blinking eyes. They see normal.

Those who see from the side-ways world
can see the truth. they can see the tear
stainded face and the red on your cheeks.
They wonder. They see the difference.
they see the reality.

that's really nice. I just read a quote that is really similar to your artist comment. it's "The world is the same either if you are happy or sad. It depends only on you if you decide to see it through pink or black glasses."
