Oh and here is my full comic for 3 AM!! This is only four pages of an idea that I hope to develop into a much longer story. Firebird is about the complicated, confusing aspects of growing up: fluctuating identity and sense of self, the boundaries in relationships with friends and other people. What it means to be queer and mentally ill, especially in the Asian-American community, and the vast diversity of the Asian-American experience (still looking for a better way to phrase that haha;;)
It’s a much more personal story, in that it takes pretty direct inspiration from my own life and identity. Because of that, I’m putting it on the back burner for the next few years while I mature more as an artist & writer and work on my other comic, which I’ve already started for mini-thesis right now!!!
Also, we just opened up our online store so if you’d like to purchase a copy of “3 AM” check it out here! It means the world to us, I’m always so grateful and full of joy to be making work alongside my amazing peers at MICA ♡
(Some of my amazing friends from MICA have been putting together super cool projects lately!!! <3)
