this is the graylight back cover! the following text will go on it when i can decide on a font to use:

A promise made decades ago could suddenly be fulfilled, endangering the life of a girl, trying her friendships and confusing her suitors. A semi-conscious love triangle ensues in twilit northern forests. Obsession, overprotection and the hunger for everything to be in it’s right place – rules of the game, set to a backdrop of arctic summer.

i’m thinking about new projects to sink my teeth into. i’m getting that fresh but slightly scary feeling of not being tied down by a huge undertaking, for once. how is it that while you’re working on a graphic novel you think “i’m just going to do this, and then never again, too grueling” and as soon as you’re done you’re entertaining happy thoughts of your next 150-page endeavour? i’m going to hold off on it a little though. i’d like to do something for a younger audience, possibly.

ps. follow my non-comics-related life over at my blog. i mostly post drawings and photos + talk about plants or clothes (and comics too of course).
