Hi! My name is Anja. The comic in front of you is a very personal story, though it doesn’t speak specifically about me. Ever since I know for myself, I’ve had a lot of problems with indecision, and with growing up, those problems haven’t subsided at all. At most, they became worse and worse as a result of increasing responsibility and consequences. That’s why I decided to take matters into my own hands and try to get to the bottom of it.

Why and how do we feel indecision? What are the causes for it? What are the consequences? How do indecisive people think about themselves and their indecision? How do we influence people around us through indecision, and how do the opinions of others affect our indecisiveness?

The webcomic Crossroads explores these issues and many more. To me, immersion into the topic of indecision meant a deep reflection on myself. With the webcomic I wanted to achieve a cathartic experience that would reduce my problems with indecision. I hope that reading will bring you joy and reflection on this ubiquitous but often overlooked topic.

The webcomic Crossroads was created as a practical part of the master's thesis Visual Narrative in the Form of Webcomic at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana at the Department of Visual Communication Design, Department of Illustration, under the mentorship of doc. mag. Marija Nabernik and co-mentorship of doc. Damijan Stepančič.
