To The Girl With The Butterfly Ears

A short comic which featured as Runner-Up in the Japanese Embassy’s Manga Jiman competition, and printed in the independent publication Bijoux Skeletons, vol.3.

Story: The story centres around an unconventionally intelligent young girl and her fixation with butterflies. The girl’s obsession helps carry her though the tough times during school. It is a glimpse which takes places and is frozen just before her coming-of-age. The story leaves this lingering taste on the tongue: “Do people really ever ‘come-of-age’ after experience of particular traumas?”
