English Composition II

Unit 3 final draft

Artist statement:

In making this piece, I wanted to inspire people around our age that may be in college or high school and dealing with mental health problems, or even learning to just take care of themselves. I wanted to show that self care can be anything that makes you feel whole as a person, just doing anything that brings a shine into your day.

I believe that doing a comic strip was the best way to reach the audience because I wanted to show illustrations. I feel that by illustrating what self-care may be, they can see that they can do the same for themselves. I also thought it might be more attractive to my audience allowing them to see that anything can promote your health, mentality, and your well-being overall.

My progress doing this piece for unit 3 was enjoyable. I’d say it felt like taking care of myself the way I felt serotonin just designing the comic strips how I like it. It also reminded me how important it is to take care of myself and just devoting time to taking care of my mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. I feel that if I did want to do things differently, I could’ve done a POV comic strip of self-care rather than just illustrating different types of ways of taking care of yourself.

However, I do hope that my audience that views the strips can see that there is more than just pampering yourself. I would like them to be inspired to do the same for themselves and focus on making themselves happy as a person.
