Don’t you just wish you could go jump waaay back in time? Back when things were simpler, the neighbors dressed stylishly, and the interior design looked unique instead of mass-produced?

When asked how she was inspired to create this series of Disney princesses going to the psychotherapist’s office, the artist says that at first, you have to know the psychotherapist herself. “Well, first you have to know about the character. Dr. Pink Giraffe is one of my characters known for being very sarcastic with their patients. It first came to me when I needed to see things with a cold mind. You know, every time I felt like I was drowning in a glass of water, I remembered this character. I wanted to make it a pink giraffe to create a contradiction between her looks and her rational mind,” says Guadarrama to Bored Panda. “I am a huge animation fan, especially Disney-Pixar animation. One day, my boyfriend (who knows my work almost better than anyone) asked me: “Wouldn’t it be funnier if Dr. Giraffe would take princesses as patients?” and that was an instant connection, I already knew what the giraffe would say to every single one of them.”#5

The artist says that for this series, she had to look at Disney princesses from a different perspective. After all, most of them were just teenagers when they had to go through their tough experiences. “Having Dr. Pink Giraffe talking to my favorite Disney characters was a very interesting exercise to me because I’m a Disney fan and I grew up very inspired by these movies but now I see it with different eyes, you know? It is like, I love Ariel, but she is a 16-year-old that probably needs some advice before taking risk decisions. I don’t want to harm anyone’s childhood nostalgia, but I have been drawing this character (Dr. Giraffe) for so long that when I started to draw it with the Disney princesses, it’s like the dialogue came straight to my head.”#7

After all, who would have thought that after living with the seven dwarfs, Snow White might have trust issues? Or that Elsa isn’t actually ready to let it go? Or that Cinderella was too quick to fall in love and trust Prince Kit Charming? By visiting Dr. Pink Giraffe’s office, these princesses realize that it’s normal to feel what they feel for someone who has gone through their hardships. “I love the fact that something that only lives in your mind becomes a piece that can communicate a message to others. I love the way comics make you bond words and images in a way that they are not repeating themselves but telling different parts of stories. I love storytelling, and I love how people connect with it.”#9

The artist says that her cartoonist career started 6 years ago when she was trying to avoid writing her thesis. “I started to self publish on a Facebook page about 6 years ago as an almost therapeutic way to express myself. As a young adult who was trying to avoid finishing her thesis, I published every day about my opinions and my own way of seeing things like emotions, fears and insecurities. Surprisingly, people connected with the drawings and the character and I was able to develop more stories and cartoons that I’d publish in a newsletter back in my home country. That’s when I realized I had become a cartoonist.” She does all the creative work herself. Therefore, one cartoon can take her up to 60 minutes to draw and another half hour to sketch and write. “One simple cartoon can take me 30-60 minutes to ink and color with Procreate, before that I tend to sketch and write for another half hour.” #10

“I am a Venezuelan artist, I studied graphic design but I am a full-time illustrator now. I came to Chile for a fresh start. I traveled to some countries in Latin America (Argentina, Lima, and Mexico) to impart a workshop about emotional intelligence through the creation of comics. It was an amazing experience. I connected with so many people that already followed my work and that made me aware of the role of art and images when it comes to expressing ourselves in a therapeutic way, I do believe practicing art can heal.” This January, Guadarrama published her first book with a compilation of all her cartoons drawn from 2014 to 2019. What an amazing start for this young artist!

This Family Built A Tiny Private Village Where Every Kid Has Their Own Home And Revealed How They Look On The Inside

Many teenagers want to move out of our parents’ homes as quickly as possible – they want to be able to bring friends whenever they like, have their own privacy and leave dirty clothes on the floor for however long they want. Knowing this, the Brink family came up with a clever solution – they built separate tiny homes for each of their children and a spacious cabin for themselves, forming a tiny private family village. There are currently a total of 6 little homes on the family’s property but mom Keli Brink said the initial plan was a whole lot different. In an interview with Insider, the woman said her husband wanted all of them to live in a single cabin but she wanted them to have their privacy. And so the idea for separate little cabins was born.

There are a total of 6 tiny houses on the property: the parents’ house, Lennox and Brodey’s houses, a double bathroom house, a pool house, and a guest house

In an interview with Bored Panda, Stephanie McQueen, the content manager of the Tiny House Community resource center, said that one of the pros of living in a tiny house is the benefits of the environment – she says that people living in tiny homes tend to spend more time outdoors. “This naturally increases overall health and happiness when you’re in nature and absorbing vitamin D on a regular basis,” said the woman. However, she pointed out that there are some cons too, like the lack of indoor entertainment space. “Having family or friends over for holidays or dinner parties probably aren’t the most comfortable, especially if you live in climates where outdoor entertainment is not a viable option during the winter months. While we’re all still working on local zoning laws with our governments, tiny houses are still a gray area and some cities refuse to allow them,” added Stephanie.

Stephanie said that tiny houses are a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and improve your health. “While it is a very eco-friendly way to live compared to a standard house, it also offers huge benefits in other aspects as well. Many houses use a fraction of energy compared to average homes, plus many are setup for solar power.”

“Taking the plunge into tiny living isn’t for everyone,” warned Stephanie. “If you’re considering it, start by working on your current home. A tiny lifestyle can be achieved by anyone, no matter the size of your house. Get rid of excess things, reduce the amount of space you use in your house, learn to be intentional when shopping, and start the mindset shift. It may sound complicated, but it’s really not. If tiny living is for you, these transitions will be smooth and logical.”
