Yesterday I finished the cover illustration for my new book, The Troll, which is what I’ve been working on outside of my other projects these last few months. It’s going to be published by Komika förlag, hopefully in time for CRACK! festival (June 25-28).
Not exactly sure how to describe the thing yet, but it has some elements of family drama, some queerness and an exploration of a fifth dimension concept (which, when I think about it, is kind of compatible with Butlerian queer theory). Mostly it’s been a lot of fun working on it.
It’s an expansion of a 24h comic I made back in 2005 (published in a smaller format by Komika in 2008), that I added 3 new chapters to, which makes it a bit lonjger than 100 pages in total. So it’s been 10 years in the making, as they say.
And it’s partially in 3D (old school 3D glasses will be included), so if you have a pair of 3D glasses, put them on and take another look at the cover!
