Week 5: studio marathon

Spent this week digging up old journals and marking sections to make thumbnails for possible fleshed-out comics. Here’s a few that I thought ended up with the most potential.


Also met with Stephanie today to discuss possible thesis directions—my tentative plan is to make an anthology of short comics about loosely autobiographical events focusing on queer sexuality, polyamory, and life transitions. I will print the comics on the risograph, which I am also focusing on learning to use. As a queer, polyamorous, gender nonconforming artist, I see and experience life differently than the mainstream narratives in most media, and I am trying to harness the “gaze” that I hold and make my view of the world accessible to people who otherwise don’t share it.
