There is no place like home

There is no place like home is a graphic novel project that was initiated during my Master studies at Konstfack.

It is a graphic novel in color about my own adoption.
The book aims to criticise and expand the image of adoption through a personal perspective. I write about the experience of being internationally adopted and what it was like to grow up as an Asian in a white, working-class family in the north of Sweden. The theme spans a depiction of class, race, taste and betweenship, in particular through its aesthetics.
I have worked with many hybrids of images, symbols and signs, using the idea that images are there to communicate a spoken and unspoken language.
I am still working on this book together with a Swedish publisher. It will be published in Swedish and updates about it will be posted to my Facebook page:
