academy-of-lies:
The last comic is the 6 page Trust of Treachery by Garrett Young. Garrett has some amazing drawing ability. I’m digging the compositions here, especially the high angles and panel layout. The dark and light areas have a really great natural balance. The center panel of the second page stands out as it doubles as the mattress the characters are sleeping on. It’s an exemplary page as it just works so well moving the story, showing the phone conversation happening in the present as well as a plethora of information about the character’s history and internal dynamics. Being so short and so detailed and well constructed I wanted even more story, of course at the same time it works on its own. It succeeds as being very specific and yet still open to interpretation. It takes some really mundane happenings, i.e., one lover on the phone talking about the other and their dog and the several events that follow and transforms them via the writing, style and a fairly abstract ending into something very emotionally moving and relatable. It’s really well done. Garrett can be found here.

ratkingofthehill said: I did not understand what happened with Gabby and Daisy at the end of trust of treachery and not it is bothering me did she become the dog did she hurt it was the dog a former lover of his reborn or trapped somehow in a dog body that felt bad for coming between them are any of these close am I stupid idk but your artwork is lovely anyway

hey thanks for the interest. that comic was originally supposed to be around 15 pages but i edited the fuck out of it, which seems like it has muddled the story completely. my intent was to explore the creepiness of obsession/possessiveness in a romantic relationship. the initial concept was that Gabby had killed Daisy and worn her skin, but regretted it later realizing she would be trapped in the body of a dog for the rest of her life (and that if she ever revealed it was her to Art, he would be horrified). as i was working though, i developed some alternate storylines, such as Daisy being a demon that trades bodies with humans. so, you should go with whichever your brain read it as
