The women Manjit Thapp (@manjitthapp) draws are meant to be a bit enigmatic. “There’s an air of mystery and silence to them,” the 21-year-old student at Camberwell College of Arts in London says. “I like that people are able to fill in these gaps with their own interpretations.” Recently, Manjit is creating comics for the first time, using a mix of pencil, ink and photo-editing software to tell the story of a reoccurring female protagonist. “It’s quite new to me,” she says. “I enjoy the challenge of telling a story through a series of drawings.”
