Truth Is Weirder

2019 – 2020, Portland, OR

In 2019, I started drawing short, slice-of-life comics about my struggles with depression, PTSD, anxiety, and gender dysphoria. The cartoony style helped make difficult topics more approachable, without downplaying the seriousness of the subject matter.

Drawn by hand on paper using pencil, ink, and watercolor, these comics feature a colorful cast including my cartoon self, my then-partner, my cats, and an aggressively cheerful anthropomorphized vision of Depression.
