somedifferentmusic asked: Bought your book last night, love it so far, really great work! Do you have any recommendations for less popular graphic books similar to yours? I love stories like this one, based around things like depression, thoughts, fantasies, etc :)
Thank you so much! :) As far as recommendations go…these two aren’t about depression, per se, but I do think both are extremely underrated (and they both do, sort of, contain fantastical flights of fancy):
Pulpatoon Pilgrimage by Joel Priddy
A story about a robot, a talking bull, and an anthropomorphic thistle going on a journey of self-discovery. (Each character is an outsider of sorts, I’m really drawn to that :p)
Freeway by Mark Kalesniko
A story about an animator with a dog’s head caught in a traffic jam on a California freeway on his way to work. Through all of this there’s also a parallel story about his present working days and struggles in the animation industry (favourite line in the book: “Animation is like sausages. You shouldn’t see how it’s made.”), and another parallel story about what he thinks his life may have been like had he been a Disney animator in 1942 (part of the so-called “Golden Age” of Disney). As much as the story jumps around, it’s never confusing. And holy cow, what lavishly rendered backgrounds - this book reportedly took 10 years to draw…I can see why.
