Finally graduated officially with a Distinction in a Master's in Comics and Graphic Novels
And got to see my final year comic project, in The Cartoon Museum!
First tabling event!
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.
