I explore a lot in my work but try as much as I can to highlight image based narrative over text based to open to a larger group. Discussing humor, character, and sometimes sex positivity. More than anything I strive for my content to be relatable. I also strive to push the limits of paper and riso graph trying to incorporate pop ups of as I mentioned before non text based narrative.
