Giant - A Graphic Novel
Giant is a silent graphic novel and currently a working progress. The story is about a teenage character who has cancer, and physically grows to the size of a giant. As well as representing the physical mutation of cancer, this parallels with the well known idea of 'the elephant in the room', where the family try to establish a new normal despite the terrifying reality in front of them. But most importantly, this acts as a metaphor for the giant strength he will take away with him after his journey has ended, and he is in recovery.
