Malaysian artist Monica Lee says she’s addicted to details. Her photorealistic pencil drawings are so intensely detailed that they could easily trick us into believing they were photos were it not for the art supplies photographed nearby. Some of these complex pieces take Lee 3 to 4 weeks to complete, yet she makes it look effortless. After working as a digital artist for 12 years, she’s decided to pursue her dream job working as an illustrator and by the looks of things, she’s off to an awesome start.

You can check out more of Monica Lee’s astonishing graphite illustrations on her Facebook page and Instagram account.

"It’s so difficult to describe depression to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness. I know sadness. Sadness is to cry and to feel. But it’s that cold absence of feeling— that really hollowed-out feeling."

On that day
In my heart
A castle rose
A mansion fell apart

Love with us was such a waking up
Warm and foggy as a coffee mug
A burning thing
Full of steam
Learning us
Savoring

If someone cheats on you they do not love you, remember that. If someone cheats on you they do not care about you as much as they say they do. If someone cheats on you it means that for a split second you were off their mind long enough for them to put another person in arms that should only be for you. If someone cheats on you, dear god, I hope you don’t go back to them because you are worth so much more than that.

"You won’t allow me to go to school.
I won’t become a doctor.
Remember this:
One day you will be sick."

Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl 

This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).

"Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. (…) You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present."
