Living the curly life: or what it is like living with a beast (for Today.com)

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 10.52.58 PMI’m proud, happy and excited to have been invited by Today.com to create a comic about curly hair :)

When they contacted me, they said they wanted a comic celebrating curls. That’s it. So I started thinking, and sketching and drawing, and next thing I knew, I had created over 65 images. Curls do that to me, you know :)

That avalanche of comics couldn’t fit on their website, so we agreed that I would post it in full on the blog.

You can see it on Today.com HERE  ;)

Hair is so much more than a simple matter of fashion. It defines us, it exposes us and tells our story of who we are and who we want to be.

I started my comic blog Tall N Curly to tell my story and by doing so, I realized I was telling the story of so many other women. Women who, just like me, want and need to be reminded that it’s OK, fun and special to be different and own who they are.

In this comic I created for TODAY.com, I wanted to show that learning to know, understand, accept and love a part of yourself — here, curly hair — is often like trying to tame something that appears to be external to yourself. I believe it’s only on the days when you have tamed the inner beast and finally released your self-conscious feelings that you will be able to fully embrace yourself … with a wink and a smile. ;)

The story behind the story of my first illustrated novel

Watch the book trailer here!

What if someone told you that no matter what, no matter when, no matter where, you are not alone? That whatever you do, think, or say, someone is right there beside you, seeing and hearing it all? What if they could send you help at any time of the day? What if they could put obstacles in your way?
A long time ago, in India, a young girl discovered this incredible truth and her life changed forever.
