Heavy is the Head
Written by Nani Mahal
Heavy is the Head is a comic grimoire that archives human experience and emotions.
The selection within this Abridged publication is part of a vast collection of over 3000 pages of draft authored by Nani within a few short years, using praxis as a therapeutic act to deal with PTSD and depression. Creating these works helped Nani find acceptance and accountability with hard feelings and hard personal truths.
Common themes include coming to terms with love, loss, acceptance and agency. The illustrations are complemented by simple symbolism, and the minimalist, raw and open art gives a sense of safe space for vulnerability within the pages.
