Making Discontent and Mundanity Approachable

My senior capstone project, Overwhelming Underwhelm, explores underwhelm through short comic narratives, depicting moments of broken expectations. In the age of social media we curate appearances of happiness and fulfillment, ignoring and forgetting that life isn't and can't be a barrage of positivity.

Underwhelm: (noun) the experience when an event or actions is not as joyous, exciting, or fulfilling as expected.
