July is Disability Pride Month, and with focusing my final years Masters' project on Disability, I wanted to use this as an opportunity to create colourful characters that represent the different people you could find within this community.
I am disabled myself, with having both mental health conditions and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and I feel I have become more comfortable with this just being a part of my life.
Last term's project was to adapt an existing piece of media into a comic - so I tried my hand at adapting and interpreting the Netflix movie Saint Frances. I have never had to opportunity to fully craft a comic, start to finish, so this was a really nice learning experience that I intend to develop in these next couple terms left on my Postgrad course.
I'm nearing the end of my first semester of my Comics and Graphic Novels course, and I really feel I am in my element for once!
Here's a rough collection of the work I've done for my research projects.
