  • Packing Up My Room

  • A graphic memoir about moving for the first time.

  • After spending my whole life living in same house and having the same room, I am finally leaving it behind. My graphic memoir reflects on the phases of growing up within the same four walls. The story realizes the many spaces that I discovered in my room whether it was a world created through imagination and play or just by my activities. The only character that appears in the book is me in which I appear differently in every panel to reveal different characteristics about myself  in each situation. The book presents a realization that one space cannot be suitable for a person forever as I deal with the transition of leaving my room for the first time.
