Slant'd Mag



Floating on Empty, 2017

Colored Pencil

7" x 10"


I contributed an illustration and written piece in Slant'd Mag's inaugural issue, Beginnings. I discussed my minor depression a few years out of college, part of which was attributed to my struggles balancing and embracing my identity between two different cultures. Mental health is a tough topic to talk about as it also comes along with a lot of stigma, particularly in many Asian countries. I am still very much a work in progress, but coming to terms with why I felt the way I did and using art as a means of channeling some of my pain has helped me grow immensely.
