Growing up graphic novels (we called them comic books) were a big part of my life. They were a portal into a world where the downtrodden and powerless became, through a strange twist of fate, heroes and heroines who fought for truth and justice. But comic books need not only be the dominion of heroes and heroines. Ordinary people can also experience great adventures. I encourage the viewer to conjure their own stories from each of these frames.


“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. 'Time' for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.”

― Roman Payne




 “I am a fugitive and a vagabond, a sojourner seeking signs.”


― Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
