    Creating a line of new story worlds for the graphic novel, each with a different approach.

    Batch-o-Comix is 9 very different story worlds – 7 of them invented by the artist with the intention to be realized as graphic novels, each with a different graphic style, developed to support the mood of the narrative and the intended target group. One of them, Jewels of Light, is presented as a storyboard for a live action film. Each one of the 7 projects emerges from a different starting point, exploring the very reason for why we tell stories and what this ritual mean for humanity. The 2 last projects is done as a test of the business perspectives in establishing an international graphic novel production house doing commissioned work in Viborg.

    Project start date: 1 May 2018
    Project end date: 1 June 2019

  • Story Worlds - Glitter Girl

    Glitter Girl - Story world developed with a seven year old girl as storyteller. The purpose of the project was to study what happens when the professional artist becomes a tool for a child creating stories.

The story world is heading towards a surprisingly surreal reality, yet still relating to the real world of the seven year old girl.

  • Story World - The Hostess

    The Hostess - In today’s culture we talk a lot about emerging “unconventional“ family structures. But it is, of course, not a new concept. In The Hostess the aim is to explore one historical example, and show that this is not as it uncommon as it may seem.
