COVID-19: a mini-book of a time in quarantine
"This mini-book is a mini-journal with illustrated--or at least attempts at 'illustration' type doodles--depicting the 2020 COVID-19 quarantine from the perspective of the author. Enjoy!"

Behind the Seams
Behind The Seams explores gender, inclusivity, and sustainability in fashion through a virtual lens. Joined by local online fashion personas, this zine presents the experiences of social media personalities in the current fashion world.
Wake is a collection of pieces I’ve made over the last year, in light of a big break up. This zine explores themes of heartbreak, time and its cyclical nature, shifting perspectives (read: I realized my ex was shittier than I thought), and coming back to oneself in the midst of all these thoughts and feelings. Wake was born out of the desire to honour this messy journey, to intentionally allow space for even the most vulnerable of feelings to be witnessed, and as a nod toward the transience of it all. This project combines analog and digital production, with pieces composed in marker as well as composition through digital editing and collaging.
This zine is a collection of photographs and comics exploring the people and cultural experiences of Scarborough. Accompanied by words from those who reside or have resided in said district, this is Our Scarborough.
