Part of The Comfort House Project: Stay as long as you like

This linocut reduction print features a 3D roller coaster tycoon mural on the ceiling. Jenni (everybody's aunty) finds the game soothing and diverting. 

Jenni was recommended to me for the project by someone I met at a downtown farmer's market pop-up last October, and afterward, I found that she was connected to other people I knew in a lovely little web of association. She and I spoke over video call: she in Montreal, and I at home in Edmonton. Jenni is currently working on her undergrad as the first person in her family ever to go to university. She says she never wants to leave academia. She shared with me that she seeks comfort by picking up a latte and going for a walk with her camera to track down new graffiti tags. She called it treasure hunting. Jenni reflected that covid sped up the timeline on a lot of world changes, but it also reduced the pressure on individuals. 

In this comforting space, I am imagining that Jenni has just returned from one of her treasure hunts and is feeling content about her relationship to this urban system. An imaginary cat (which Jenni insisted be a bit better fed after I showed her the sketch ft a skinny cat) perches behind her looking for attention. A sign behind her reads "mentorship hours MWSS all day!" and beside her, a ladder ascends up through a trap door in the ceiling. The door leads to Sofia's room, and I thought that Sofia wouldn't mind having to cut through Jenni's urban, computer-game-scape on her way to her space.
