Seventeen-year-old Evi Tampold made her graphic novel debut by shutting herself into a closet; that is, she drew readers into the confined space that helped her learn to control her ADHD as a child...When she heard about a comics and medicine conference themed around “spaces of care,” inspiration and confidence combined to finally thrust her into the community as a maker. Tampold opened her notebook and poured out her heart, crafting a stylish tool to confront the realities of ADHD and join the ranks of graphic novelists whose work drives conversations on under-discussed issues.
