Dreaming Chain is a collection of short stories and vignettes in comic form. Each story follows different people and events in the same fictional world — The Chain. The book is a multimedia experiment in cartooning as an outlet to express my imaginary space. My intent is to communicate the character of The Chain through emotion and impression, rather than through exposition and direct worldbuilding. I want The Chain to be a space, not a setting.
Dreaming Chain is also me trying to capture my world in the most authentic way I can: as an ode to indulgence. Indulging in writing with pretend, indulging in my favorite medium, indulging in drawing however I want with whatever I want, depending on my mood today. The book is a record of the best time I’ve ever had making anything. It’s an invitation to experience my favorite place as I do. Engage with it as story first, “body of work” second. I want you to have fun. If you create things, I want it to inspire you to indulge in your own labors of love. It’s an invitation to play with us!
