For this project I plan on creating 5 digital comics to display 5 phrases that I use a lot. Four of the phrases are lies that I tell myself/others and the 5th phrase is the truth.
My 4 lies are:
“I have everything under control.”
“I have no regrets.”
“I know where my life is going.”
“I never get stressed out.”
My Truth is:
“I’m generally a happy person.”
Statements like these interest me because there’s no way for me to prove to my audience that I’m being truthful or lying. All of these phrases involve how I’m feeling. Since I’m the only person with access to my thoughts, I’m the only one who can validate these statements. Everyone else just has to trust me.
I wanted to use digital comics to illustrate my statements because I’ve always been inspired by them but never had a chance to create my own. I intend to create a few comic strips and a few gifs. I’ve been looking into artists like Ida Eva Neverdahl for inspiration. There’s a couple examples of her work below.
