Hi, I'm Jessi!

Hi, I’m Jessi!

Jessi Eoin (they/them) is an illustrator who loves making, reading, and talking about comics. They have come to accept that this is probably how they would be lured by a kidnapper.

Artist Statement

Whether I put my stylus to tablet, micron pen to mixed media paper, or brush to watercolor paper, I am thinking about how to exalt my community. I imagine them embracing the celebration of their bellies and mobility aids brought to life in the curves of my line work. I imagine them relishing the reflection of their back rolls, ostomy bags, and body hair that blends gender identities.

 

I imagine their joy in reading fat, disabled characters leading fantastical lives in the pages of a comic I’ve created for them. I imagine them loving parts of themselves that they may have struggled to before. I imagine myself, too, in these ways, feeling glorified in the ways I revel in others. I’ve learned that to love others is to love myself, and I pour my heart into each piece to create a world where we exist in bountiful and abundant ways, where we are valued and cherished as we are.
