"YATTA!" cover page - 8.5"X11" - 2010
The zine starts with a little intro, and a comic showing how I used to teach my friends how to draw using Chun-Li as an example!
In addition to providing a light into my own experience having my appendix removed, I am interested in conveying the multiple meanings of “appendix.” Not only does the word refer to portions of various internal organs and systems, but it is also used as a space for additional information at the end of a written document or narrative. The information in the appendix, while not necessary to understand the general idea of the body it is attached to, helps refine and contextualize the main structure. This idea reflects my stance on my art making in general. While this work may not be considered "Illustration" in the traditional sense, it still attempts to evoke an otherwise abstracted emotion to the viewer. If anything, I feel making work like this informs my imagemaking ideation and creation.
