My research for this project was inspired by my love for Japanese manga and my recent interest in American comic books. I've always admired how easily accessible and immersive comic books can be, with their ability to convey real and relatable stories. As an artist, I aspire to create work that elicits a similar response in others.

Having a comic book that could have helped me navigate many of my early mental health challenges is something I wish I had while growing up in the early 2000s. Despite the recent movement towards mental health awareness, I noticed a lack of comic books or graphic novels that delve into the complexities of young people facing a variety of issues simultaneously, without access to help. Incorporating this reality into my project felt like an important contribution to the world.
Let’s Work Together!
