Sloth Girl

Sloth Girl isn't just a comic. It's a journey, a journey I have been on and most likely you have too. Sloth Girl is me, you or anyone that has ever felt like they have no idea who they are or what they are doing. 
She's the girl who is bullied, mocked, scared, lost, ignored, and lacks self esteem. It's not all doom and gloom though. Everyone has a little fight in them. It's always possible to come back stronger and fight your demons, whatever they may be.

Somehow, by some miracle, I managed to complete Sloth Girl in time for Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds. This years festival took place on the 23rd and 24th September, a deadline I was confident I'd be able to achieve, until I suddenly moved to London at the end of July. This move wasn't planned, it was an opportunity too good to turn away. It was definitely a challenge, moving away from home, starting a new full time job, settling into a new home and illustrating a comic. But I managed, and pleased with the end result. I learned so much doing this project and I'm excited to make another, once I've caught up on sleep.

Sloth Girl
One girl's journey to self discovery.
An empowering story of facing your fears, conquering challenges and self belief, for those who sometimes feel a little lost.

To accompany the comic, I wanted some artwork to go with it, so I had some prints made of two watercolour illustrations I did.
