The Faces We Show

This weeks contribution for Roller Coaster Moods Trapped In Cartoons comes from Felicity Tse. Her beautiful piece of art is titled ‘At This Moment.’ We want to thank Felicity for contributing to our site, and she’s also written a little statement about her work for you below.

“There’s a saying that in Japanese culture, you have 3 faces: one you show to the world, one you show to your friends and family, and the third face you never show anyone, and that one is also the truest reflection of who you are. We all tend to embellish who we are – these fronts are more positive, more clever or accomplished – hiding the possible ones behind them when we’re alone – just short of our high expectations, lonely, unsuccessful, etc. There’s an added pressure/anxiety that comes from the idea that because of these negative feelings, we’re not exactly where we need to be, that we still have such a long way to go… when at this moment, all of us are ‘whole’ and are exactly where we need to be, even if its not an ideal situation.”

We hope you enjoy Felicity Tse’s drawing as much as we did and if you want to contribute to our site in the future, please email us at
