A auto biographical "song comic" about moving forward from a bad relationship. I spent much of my time ruminating on it and I made this comic as a way to give myself closure and move on. I choose Blue and Red because I wanted to express how fundamentally different we we're and how there was no overlap and there was no compromising it was over. Which is a very hard thing to think about, you give someone years of your time and it doesn't pan out. It was a hard concept for me as a 18 year old. But this theme of moving on and dealing with bad relationships is a theme throughout my work. Along with the autobiographical story telling.
Happy To Be Here
This is a begging stage of a comic for my senior thesis at DAAP, It is suppose to give glimpse into my life as a high schooler dealing with adult themes like rape, domestic abuse, mental health emergency's , death and rape culture. But I want to focus on telling my story and talking about growth within myself becoming independent. Knowing when to walk away and not to compromise for someone rather it be a partner or a friend who abuses you. It will be a comic and poster series along with zines and other printed material. In telling my story I feel Like I will help others. But this is my first draft and is here as a place holder for the time being. This specific set of pages is about ending up at a hospital because of the shame I felt dealing with my friends sudden death.
