To Earn This Eden

Part I (The Tunnel) of my four part thesis project follows a fawn into a labyrinth where they fall into a toxic relationship with an owl. Part II (Nights that Live in Me) delves into the real relationship behind the fawn/owl romance. In Part III (To Earn This Eden), I emerge from past love stories to my very platonic present, but continue to explore my feelings and curiosities through diary comics. Finally, Part IV (Midnight Garden) was born out of the death of my iPad! Though it was eventually resurrected, its temporary demise inspired me to pull out my old reliable tools— pen, paper, scissors, and tape— and make some mini zines!
