Spera: Glass Flowers, Part 4
Revisiting the extraordinary world of Spera
! In this collaboration, I ventured into Josh Tierney’s ongoing online arc, Glass Flowers. Part 4 reveals the eerie side of an initially pleasant cruise ship the Spera gang hopped on.
Spera: A Home-Spooked Meal
My contribution to the amazing Spera
. “Written and created by Josh Tierney, Spera is a collaboration between artists from around the world, illustrated and told in consecutive sections that incorporate character designs by Sarah Ferrick and Afu Chan. These sections form a tapestry of artistic styles and storytelling methods, turning the world of Spera into a poetic, surprising and wholly unique realm.” My bit (written by Marisa Williams) involved the characters cooking supper in a haunted cottage with their new friend, Chobo, the warrior tabby.
Two Threads Holding
An unfinished comic about dreams, hugely inspired by the movie Inception. It features my yakuza character drifting through a dreamscape filled with themes common to my own REM cycles. No plot—which is probably why this project deflated after 4 pages. Lesson learned!
Heir: a fable
Key frames for a short animation. The project did not come to fruition, but I am pleased with the attempt. The plot was based on a dream. Briefly: an infant heir is seized from his cradle and brought to the dark kingdom to be raised and trained according to their edicts. He accepts this until his teens, whereupon the urge to return home carries him across the fields, to the light kingdom. While greeted with open arms, he soon finds that he no longer belongs—too dark for the light kingdom and too light for the dark kingdom. Realizing this, the heir descends into the valley in between to wander forever on his own.
Gundam Wing fan comics
I refer to them as doujinshi
on the website. Ancient stuff, but still. There are 6 short comics, drawn from 2003 to 2005. I was hugely involved in the Gundam Wing fandom for a good decade. Because that’s what anime nerds did back then. That and this particular fandom deviated from the canon in every conceivable direction, which prompted explosive creativity. (Sorry for the confusing navigation though: the back and next links are on the top right, where it says 01.)
