(And yes, for the record, I did this entirely on the computer.)
Text image description:
The banner says "Autistic Hoya Illustrated," with the word "Illustrated" appearing inside an arrow pointing to the right-hand side. Beneath the header, in a tiny font, it says "Lydia Brown 16 June 2012."
On the left-hand side, there is a large figure in approximated pencil and crayon, with black hair, glasses, a blue-gray shirt, khaki pants, and black shoes, arms crossed, with the caption "me" pointing with an arrow toward the figure. A dialogue bubble says, "I'm Autistic, okay? Let me make this real clear to you." The word "Autistic" in that bubble is circled in an approximation of red pencil.
To the right of the large-figure, there are three smaller-scaled versions of the identical figure.
The first is standing to the viewer's left-hand side of a yellow house with a red door, two first floor windows on either side of the door, three consecutive second floor windows, a gray roof, and a dark red chimney. The caption beneath this figure says, "No one in my family is named Autism. I'm not 'living with Autism.'"
The second is standing to the viewer's left-hand side of a mostly white dog with a cream spot on its back and cream-colored ears, lying in a curled-up position with a dark red leash going to the figure's left-hand side. The caption beneath this figure says, "My dog isn't named Autism. I don't 'have Autism.'" There is an arrow pointing toward the dog from beneath it with the name Béla written in an approximation of pencil.
The third is holding in its right-hand (viewer's left-hand side) a bright green bag, like the type from retail clothing stores. The caption beneath this figure says, "I don't carry little bits of autism around with me. I'm not 'a person with autism.'" There is an arrow pointing from upward down toward the bag that says "no autism here" in an approximation of pencil.
At the bottom of the image, there is a fifth figure, the same person depicted in the previous four, but this time in a new iteration. The figure appears to be frenetically running and flailing the arms, with both arms waving wildly while the eyes look behind the figure (to the viewer's right-hand side) where there is a hand holding a long brown stick. The dialogue beside this figure reads, "And I'm not being
molested touched by something called Autism. I am not 'touched by autism.'" The word "molested" is displayed with a strikethrough as if to indicate it was redacted as a word choice and replaced with "touched."
