‘’For years

I was afraid to play

The fool.

So I built up walls

Ten miles high

And from this view

I saw that I

Had only played myself.’’

A beautiful surprise created by a Greek artist that results in a quirky, strange graphic novel, a mixture of poetry and Visual Art. Sketches influenced by Gothic Art, Steampunk, child drawings, and abstract techniques communicate visions of love, loneliness, the search for meaning and fulfillment, the question of an unknown future in an environment that isolates people from their loved ones and from themselves.

Ghosts, Pierrots, anthropomorphic robots, girls on the moon, a geisha walking in a black garden, a poetess with wooden legs, waiting. Sad children, demonic figures and haunted dolls…

Now, I will let the photos speak for themselves. All illustrations by Giorgos Halkias.
