Grimace and Grin
I've shared a sample from my graphic novel, Grimace & Grin, here. It was published in 2016 after a successful Kickstarter campaign to crowd fund it. You can purchase the full 90 page novel on Etsy or as a Kindle e-book.
"Carefully crafted, thoughtfully drawn and emotionally nuanced, Grimace and Grin is a wonderfully fun and entertaining read. Fans of Terry Pratchett and comic fantasy in general will love this book" - SuperSerious Comics
Drawn by hand using good old fashioned pencils and pens, an army of brushes and buckets of black ink, Grimace & Grin introduces a world from which all colour has been drained. Drawing on themes of sibling rivalry, love and loyalty within the twisted dynamics of an evil 'family', G&G is a tongue in cheek homage to the world of fantasy. It draws inspiration from Gormenghast and Frankenstein to Lord of the Rings and D&D.
Full of macabre humour and high-adventure, Grimace & Grin is a wild and whimsical fantasy which explores the grey space between good and evil.
