Everyday narratives are often overlooked, so I wanted to reflect disability and mental health narratives in an alternative and empowering way. I wanted the reader to have an open dialogue and apply their own set of meanings and circumstances to the story.
The characters are not portrayed facing adversity or seen as inspirational, nor are they defined by gender or disability. In a similar vein the character with a physical disability is not initially obvious and clues to their character are formed before their disability is revealed.
The images were created using a combination of collage, watercolour, digital and hand drawn sketches.
