Visual Communications

Hi my name is Jack, and I’m a 22 year old visual communication student. I have a strong passion for illustration and storytelling.

For my final year project, I created a graphic novel about the effects of life with an eating disorder. Since I was child, I’ve had a huge interest in comics and superheroes. But as a larger boy, I never felt represented in media. I’ve lost a lot of weight since then and gained a lot of confidence. So the project I created combined my love of storytelling with my personal experiences with having an eating disorder. 

I created a book that I think tells a heart warming and action packed story. That I know my younger, rounder self would have loved.
