In The Weeds is my senior thesis which has been created and revised over the course of eight months. I wanted to create a short graphic novel detailing my experiences with food - specifically the way in which I alleviate my own anxieties by cooking.
In The Weeds is a collection of three vignettes each marked with their own in-color recipe relating to each story. While a small sampling is shown here, the full project is thirty six pages and will be available to read in April.
