Crohn's Disease Zine

A Zine about Crohn's disease made for a Narrative Communication and Design course at Portland State University. I have been battling Crohn's for about five years and wanted to shed light on the personal side of living with an invisible illness, to hopefully help others fight their battle with confidence. The zine begins with a character marked with an "X" which represents it's chronic illness, the character then puts on a mask, which represents a facade of happiness. At the end of the zine the character finds others with masks, and they reveal that they all share an "X", and embrace community.
