This is a piece about the struggle our generation faces - constant comparison to those online, seeing 'perfect' people posting, and judging ourselves based on the fake, edited posts, making us feel insecure. I wanted to portray this feeling in a collection of images. These two comic panels help me to depict how I believe teens subconsciously feel and help show that they are not alone in this feeling.
