Hi there, fellow sci-fi fans! I'm Dave, and I'd like to talk with you about the future. In fact, if you'll spare a little of your time, I can show you exactly how the future is going to unfold...
Or at least one particular future! Be warned, however; this future is not a picnic. It's a tough, gritty, uncompromisingly dark future, where death lurks around every corner, and something primal slithers in the shadows...
But I'm getting ahead of myself. Before we lose ourselves in the future, let's rewind a little. Like most of you reading this, I'm a movie fan, and avid reader of all things fantastical. Several years ago, I had an idea for a sci-fi story of my own; a thriller that explores the misuse of emerging technologies, and the mind-blowing possibilities that lie ahead. A warning sign. A bullet-riddled stop-sign on a dark and rocky road, you just know leads somewhere bad...
For a long time, I kicked the idea around, intrigued by the premise, but unsure what to do with it. Gradually a rich stew of elements percolated in my mind, until one day the last piece of the
puzzle - the 3rd act, (hopefully) gut-punch of a twist - dropped into place, and the story was complete. Now, after many feverish, caffeine-fuelled nights of writing and painting, that story has
blossomed into a 124 page, full-color graphic novel. For me, Terminal Dark is a labor of love. It's the movie I never got to direct, told in still images, and I can't wait to share it with
I'll be posting new artwork frequently. Leave your comments, I'm eager to read and reply to them :)
