PARASITE is a full-length graphic novel and multimedia project to be released in 2020. my goal is to visually examine the deep rift that develops between the sense of identity we consciously acknowledge/present to others and the subconscious, intangible self that emerges within us. the "parasite" is a personification of that unknown self; its name refers not to its inherent purpose or nature, but rather the fear and rage we impose onto what we do not understand about ourselves.
