Note from the artist:
 This comic formed part of my final university arts project, B.L.U.N.T., my first attempt at a graphic novel. ‘History’ is one among a series of autobiographical vignettes that explore identity, secrecy and visibility. Everyday narratives are presented through symbolic words and imagery which are laden with personal meaning.
Read more about B.L.U.N.T. here.
