hipogram asked: Christopher, your work here is wonderfully trippy. What got you started on this project? What are your ambitions for it after you complete it?
I’ve always wanted to do comics, but had been waylaid by my own low-esteem for many years. I finally reached the point just last year where I felt like I could draw anything with reasonable clarity, so I figured now was, finally, the time. The germ of this story started on my childhood sickbed (where I spent the majority of my time) in some very strange fever dreams at the age of 11. These weird “visions” imprinted pretty deeply on my brain and have been trying to get out ever since, if-you-will. I drew bits and pieces on and off until the present day, and over the years the story and place evolved with me, bits of my personal interests emerging and then being cut off, gradually rendering it to its present state where only the things that have stuck around and proven the test of time seem worth telling.
I’m hoping to have a website up whenever my friend gets around to it. Ultimately my ambition is to make a small living selling art and comics, getting some stories out there. I have a lot to tell so I’m certain when it will be complete, but I intend to see it through however possible until I give up the ghost. I’m going to see about making print copies of every 20 or so pages, or every natural chapter with a color cover, to see how that does.
Thanks for the kind words, I’m glad you like what I’m doing, it means a lot to me.
