25.05.21, SHORTS: Summer ’21
25.05.21 is a short comic based on my written diary entry from said date. Featured in SHORTS: Summer ’21, the comic depicts my experience of fainting after receiving my first Covid-19 vaccine. I spent my Winter lockdown studying zines and comics published during previous periods of political and social unrest, which for reasons relating to budget, guerrilla distribution tactics and resources, often featured black and white, first-person reflections on seemingly mundane experiences of their time. Due to the nature of the experience and my mindset while creating it, this comic is the only one which uses this particular visual language throughout the whole book.
