Might as well share with the world, for my fourth year thesis I’m illustrating Volume 1 of a book that I wrote.
It’s about a victory-lap high school student – Vega, a shape-shifting immortal being with questionable morality and motives – Death, and a sentient octopus – Phil. It’s about loss and heartbreak, discovery and coming of age, numerous bad jokes and the fact that Phil has better aim in a snowball fight than military trained snipers. It’s about carving out your place in the world when you have nothing left and coming to terms with having all your beliefs challenged. It’s about realizing that the world will go on without ever remembering you unless you do something worth remembering. But mostly, it’s about an immortal with an agenda, who power-trips over the line and kills off an entire city. Having nowhere left to go, Vega crosses over into a world she had no idea existed and realizes that on top of being kind of an inconsiderate shithead, Death also can’t cook. A story about 3 roommates, endless shenanigans, and what it means to be human.
