Time for a short story gentle reader...






This was my entry for some poorly organised graphic short story competition, which came to be from an idea for my upcoming autobiographical graphic novel, 'Post Conatus', and hearing about said competition. The story is self contained, but it was always intended to be included in my book as a fantasy/interlude to help clarify how I was feeling at that point of the story -and explain why I fucked up my project last term. The rest of the book is retelling actual events, so this, I feel, will add an interesting counterbalance to that... but more on that book later!

Oh, it didn't win, but -considering the positive statements David Hughes (who was a judge) had to say about the winner- I guess that's a good thing.
