Conjurings

My heart wants roots. My mind wants wings. I cannot bear their bickerings.

Here is “Knot”, a short comic I drew to sell at Mocca and TCAF this year. The printed version is going to be SO PRETTY. I’m in love with the cover (which I will post later).

I just wanted to do something fairy-tale-like that talked about doubts and frustrations and how to deal with them. I’m really happy with how colorful and adorable the story turned out to be. 

If you enjoyed “Knot”, please consider reblogging it and/or checking out my ongoing webcomic Namesake! HUGS TO ALL OF YOU!

It would seem I’m taking a tumblr break.

The little girl’s sense of secrecy that developed at prepuberty only grows in importance. She closes herself up in fierce solitude: she refuses to reveal to those around her the hidden self that she considers to be her real self and that is in fact an imaginary character: she plays at being a dancer like Tolstoy’s Natasha, or a saint like Marie Leneru, or simply the singular wonder that is herself. There is still an enormous difference between this heroine and the objective face that her parents and friends recognise in her. She is also convinced that she is misunderstood: her relationship with herself becomes even more passionate: she becomes intoxicated with her isolation, feels different, superior, exceptional: she promises that the future will take revenge on the mediocrity of her present life. From this narrow and petty existence she escapes by dreams.

But some people can’t tell where it hurts. They can’t calm down. They can’t ever stop howling.

The Moirai: (Ancient Greek: Μοῖραι, “apportioners”, Latinized as Moerae) a.k.a The Fates:
Three Sisters in Greek Mythology who decides the fate of mankind. 
Clotho spun the threads of life, Lakhesis measured the thread and Athropos would decide how each individual died. When their time had come, she would cut their thread of life.
