This is my entry for the Vintage Books Graphic Short Story competition. Cutting it a bit close to the deadline, but I’m happy it’s done! The brief was pretty open, speculating that it only need be 4 pages.
I almost swore off this after I thumbnailed it thinking it was dumb, but I’m pretty happy I decided to push on with it, I think it turned out well! I had a lot of trouble with the pacing, and I still don’t think I pulled it off quite right, but it’s as good as it’s going to get and I’m okay with that.
Some credit goes to Nicholas Kole for the oodles of inspiration his work always gives me. I think it’s partly his fault that half of the stories I draw seem to take place in a forest :P
Anyway, this is Fallen Star A.K.A. The Story In Which Everything Glows Inexplicably. I hope you like! Click through for the bigger version on dA.
