All This Life: An Interview with Saffa Khan


“[I’m] a cat trapped in a human’s body,” says Saffa Khan, nineteen year old art student and illustrator. The statement has quite a poetic feel to it; the image of a tabby confined in the edges and curves of the human body quite vivid. A lot of the things Saffa says have this kind of feeling. When asked what her favourite film is, she is unable to choose one, yet can provide you with a list of her favourite scenes with a creative view on each of them. Saffa has quite the artistic eye, taking pop culture and finding a unique aspect to it. I admire her so much for her confidence to be vulnerable in sharing her art, and I’d be wiling to dance in the dark with her any time.–Akosua
