Crowdfunding campaign for Painter launches on Kickstarter
Konrad Ostawsen, an artist on the verge of depression, is drawn out of his stagnation by the news of an inheritance from his long-lost father. The discovery takes him into a different world presenting completely new challenges: secluded community, distant island with hidden ancient secrets…
This graphic novel is a contemporary attempt to approach the classic horror novel with a hint of adventure. It is a tribute to creators such as H. P. Lovecraft, W. H. Hodgson, and G. Lucas.
You might think: “Oh no! Another rip-off with Lovecraft’s name on it!” And I cannot blame you. Lovecraft’s name has become a popular marketing gimmick for selling all kinds of stuff. However, as I see it, you rarely find things that actually evoke the ambience of classic horror novels, and I don’t mean historical setting but more like the mood and a certain intimacy of the story.Łukasz Godlewski
