As I was working on Lounger, I was also creating little reflective pieces about my childhood. I have now gathered these explorations all together into a 32-page comic. They don’t compose a linear memoir, but instead provide investigations into my young fantasies and early desires for connection. Specific themes and imagery connect the works, though they take different approaches and tones. The stories include works such as “The Betrayal of the Mouse” and “Bullies.” Some of these pieces were included in the gallery for the 53rd IVLA Conference.
