TAG YOURSELF DONUT MEME
I created the donut meme concept to commemorate my favorite donut shop, Blackbird Doughnuts, that I would visit far too frequently during my time spent in Boston. In my book-binding class, we were instructed to make an “irregular” book (in this case I justified its irregularitiy by its circular format) which I figured would be the perfect opportunity to use my illustrations and further explore the concept of creating personalities synonymous with distinct Blackbird Doughnut flavors.

The term “Tag Yourself” comes from the popular internet meme trend where the audience creates a sense of unity or connection through the shared traits they identify with. The book is light-hearted, funny, and relatable as it prompts the reader to identify with one of the “personalities” that they most resonate with. The characters explored in the book are a mix of internet/movie personality tropes and loosely based charecters from my personal life.
