'Hey Sis' Minicomic

This is a minicomic I did for The Pulp Girl’s first issue of The Pulp Zine. The theme for May is ‘Good Times’. It’s based loosely on Hey Sis, a song by Dum Dum Girls. I really fell in love with the song, although I have no idea what the exact lyrics are, (so if someone knows, please give meeee themmm). It’s about a little girl hanging out with her cool big sis. She really looks up to her and copies absolutely everything she does. She can’t wait to grow up so she can be like her. I can relate to her as I use to love hanging out with my big sis when I was really young. She used to work at Heathrow and have fancy-pants drinks all the time. I can remember she use to save those little cocktail umbrellas for me. I didn't understand why you’d want a tiny umbrella unless you were a teeny mouse or something. Big sisters are totally underrated so this is for them!

'Always Hear The Same Shit!', Mini-comic

This was a fun side project I started almost a year ago when a very upsetting incident took place regarding The Tuts and friends. I didn't know how to express my anger in any way other than through drawing. I wasn't there when it took place but it really saddened me. It’s clunky and awkward since I haven’t done anything comic-wise for absolutely ages but It helped me understand what The Tuts and friends had to go through.
