Ali Fitzgerald
A Million Little Lapses, 2006

8' x 4'

Recent debates over the value and objectivity of fictionalized non-fiction prompted me to create my own memoir/comic. I decided to construct an exaggeratedly imagined personal history within the confines of a 4' by 8' frame. I tailored the story to the limited space, which resulted in an 8' by 4' foot self-contained chronicle of my life. Well, somebody's life anyway.
