Well, I figured it's about time I start introducing what exactly City of Cards is and what I have planned. Over the next couple of months I'll be posting my progress on the first full installment from this project. This is what I'll be doing for my pre-thesis assignment, but it's also part of the larger work I have planned over the next several years.
To start things off, I've got the preliminary cover art for Ghosts of Samsara, a 20 page vignette that takes place during the beginning events of the story.
I took the photo that I used for the cover back when I was studying in Tokyo in 2006 but CoC doesn't actually take place in Tokyo, just a fictional city based on all the different cities I've been to and that have inspired the idea of "city" in my mind. The story is a little bit of everything I enjoy writing/drawing including horror, science-fiction, supernatural, buddy-comedy, superhero... it's all in there in some way.
Next post I'll introduce Ace and a little bit about who/what he is. I'll try to keep these posts spoiler free for the most part.
