Bigger was my entry for the 2022 Manga Jiman contest, on the theme of "Connect".

A meditation on growing older and becoming a parent, and the perspective that grants us on our relationships.

I chose to make this a silent comic so I could focus on showing, not telling - and to remove any distractions from the story itself.

Although it didn't make the shortlist, drawing the story was a very challenging and cathartic experience. I hope to be able to put as much of myself into my art in the future.

This is the first half of the story; if you'd like to see how it ends, you can pick up a copy from the shop.
