Feeling Feelings: A Collection of 5 Comic Essays by Daniel Torraca
Feeling Feelings: A Collection of 5 Comic Essays by Daniel Torraca

Howdy! 

My name is Daniel Torraca. I'm an illustrator, designer, printmaker, cartoonist, and person! I've been making hyper personal comics now for a while and I've largely been able to front money to print them (woohoo indie comics!). If you have any interest in checking out my other work it can be found here on my website or on my instagram.

When I started making the zines that would eventually become Feeling Feelings, I wasn't really sure anyone (besides my partner) would see them. Each one of the stories included in this book are very real to me and my life and (I hope) that means they can be relatable to someone else's life. 

THE SPECIFICS The printed copies of the book will be 4"x6"ish (small bois) with a front and back cover printed in color. The interior pages will be printed in black and white. The stories included in this printing of Feeling Feelings are the following essays:

  • Solitude
  • Shrug Emoji
  • Giant
  • Bobbypins
  • Crying at the Wawa

[ Each of these has been shared (usually in excerpts) on my comic instagram here.]

WHY Books cost money - both to own and make apparently - this money will go the printing go physical copies of Feeling Feelings. All money made beyond our goal will be used to:

  •  Help pay for the time already spent working
  • Contribute to funds to print more books
  • Help pay for shows to sell more books
