Snowflake

 
"You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake.
You’re the same decaying organic matter as everything else."
 
 
Snowflake tells the story of a "pretty" character when contrasted with "ugly" ones.

"Untitled Portrait of a woman"                                               
"She is not a beautiful and unique snowflake.
She is the same decaying organic matter as everyone else and she is all part of the same shit. May she never be complete, may she never be content, may she never be perfect and fakely improved. The beauty salons she goes to are crowded with chicks trying to look like women, as if being a woman means looking the way a sculptor or an art director says… ha ha - I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say let's evolve. Let the chips fall where they may, wherever they will ever may."
