Unfortunately, we did not reach our campaign goal of $11,000. We raised $4,141, far from our goal and below $7,000, the minimum that would have made the project viable. So […]
Marissa is a painter drawn to the fantastic by the extra tools it offers for exploring the human condition. “Science fiction,” she says, “is a great weather vane for the current beliefs of a culture or society, and Jekyll and Hyde is a perfect example of that.”
Asher is a comics artist drawn to the story of Jekyll and Hyde because of the idea of duality. “Dichotomies are powerful things in art and literature,” he says. “They make powerful characters and powerful visuals.”
