In life we are given many opportunities and options to choose. Choosing however, it’s a difficult thing to do as you’re constantly thinking whether you’re right or wrong. Whatever we decide to do, it’s always a comforting feeling knowing there are doors opened for us and there are possibilities.
To show what this choice really means for people, Brazilian artist Ademar Vieira a journalist, screenwriter, and illustrator, illustrates it best through a comics strip called “The Choice”. From Ademar’s point of view every time we make a choice, we leave one timeline aside and enter another. Ademar made a comic strip dedicated to all the animals that contributed to our mental health during the quarantine. Earthwonders reached out to Ademar to know more about his work.

“Every time we make a choice, we leave one timeline aside and enter another. So, this comic strip is called “The Choice” and you decide which timeline was chosen. This strip I dedicate to all the animals that contribute to our mental health during the quarantine.”
“The idea came from my personal experience. During the quarantine, I realized that every time I was sad or anxious or having bad thoughts, my dogs would bring me back to the present and show me how it’s possible to stay cheerful, focusing on small things like a game or a nap or the simple and sincere love of a dog. It moved me every time I thought about it, because in their purity they were totally oblivious to the pandemic and focused on the simplest things in life,” shared Ademar when reached out by Earthwonders.
His work it’s quite touching, meaningful and relatable to many people who found comfort in their fury friends while being isolated from everyone due to the pandemic. ” When I came up with the idea to create that comic, it took me a while to draw it because I thought it was not one of the best ideas I had. To my surprise, “The Choice” went around the world thanks to the people who identified themselves with the story and wanted to share it too,” added the artist.
