Personal Project, 2017

In this project, I explored childhood depression.

This is a tough project to write about because it is so intimate: I suffered from severe depression as a child around the ages of 6-8.

A few years ago, I discovered some of the things that I had written during this time - I was an avid reader and a prolific writer ;) - and the memories I had worked hard to erase came flooding back.

This project was initially going to be a comic book, and the first image comes from my work on the comic. However, I found the free-flowing format of a zine, with poetry and imagery, much more liberating.
