A visual art piece by Raychelle Duazo
From the artist: “I Don’t Want to Be Closed Off” is a simple self-portrait in the style of a comic book panel. As a comics artist whose body of work is autobiographical and often very personal, I feel hyper visible as an API person and wanted to relay how my work helps me to come into my identities.
