    A young artist has gone viral on Twitter after sharing her collection of every mosquito she has ever slaughtered.

    The artist, who goes by the handle @zynapsed, was participating in the “how-it-started vs. how-it’s-going” trend, which shows one’s progress on whatever pursuit they have embarked on.

    In what may be among the trend’s most unusual entries, @zynapsed decided to reveal her museum of dead mosquitoes, all taped secure on a page of a notebook.

    As seen in the photo, @zynapsed is yet to “document” her 81st target, and we can only presume she has already done so.

    @zynapsed’s collection quickly blew up, drawing all sorts of reactions from awe to WTF to you-probably-need-therapy.

    “OMG I don’t know what to say,” one user replied.

    While @zynapsed certainly has an unusual hobby — with some saying she probably has an interest in entomology (the study of insects) — she happens to be concerned with more common social issues.

    In a follow-up tweet, she asked others to educate themselves on topics such as LGBT rights, sexual assault, police brutality and Black Lives Matter.

    @zynapsed shares her creative work on Instagram. Check them out here.
