SELF HELP is a self-referential comic about navigating work, life, and the often-esoteric processes of art-making. I originally began drawing these comics with black sharpie marker on green address labels that I found lying around the studio in large rolled sheets. After completing a panel, I would stick it to my studio wall, gradually building a paper mosaic of my own musings. Later, I began scanning the images, digitally adding color, and posting them to Instagram @self_help_comic where strangers and friends can engage with them. The straightforward and low-stakes process of drawing confessional content on inexpensive materials became liberating. It served as a counterbalance to the more ambiguous high-concept work that I had been accustomed to making and has become a creative outlet for my frustration and confusion about the inconsistencies that seem to dominate mainstream conceptions of meaning in art and life. The name "SELF HELP" describes the role that drawing this comic plays in my own life and conveys a guiding ethic within the work: that unearthing, exploring, and challenging ones innermost thoughts can be at-once confounding, clarifying, and cathartic.
