Places I've Lived

For this zine, I decided to do little scenes based on memories from the places I've lived. My family moved a lot when I was young, so I did these by state. I like the idea of the zine as a space for personal perspectives and stories - this is a little tiny slice of my life's story.


I decided after some initial sketches that I wanted the zine to read 'sideways' so I could use more of the available space (many of the state shapes are very rectangular).







I did this project all in pen and sharpie, which is a big departure for me from my normal workflow - I do a lot of initial sketching on paper but normally do all finished projects with the computer. It was super refreshing and freeing to roll with the imperfections of my ink drawings. I ended up liking this project a lot more than I thought I would, going in.
