Bethalynne Bajema, one of my first internet artist crushes has a new project, The Black Ibis.
The Black Ibis is a graphic novel told in nine books. Each book takes you a little deeper into a dark fairy tale that is based upon my own love of the idea that there exists a world beneath the world. This idea that sometimes a door is not just a mundane door but an entrance to someplace we reserve for our dreams. The story, at its heart, is a simple one. It revolves around one sister trying to find her sister who has become lost. She must follow the same path her sister has set out on going a little farther into this underground world of dark cabarets and strange theaters as she attempts to catch up to her sister, who is falling faster down this path in her desire to finally find a performer known as the Black Ibis
The kickstarter project is to help fund the printing of book one as well as the first of two tarot decks designed to go with the story. For more information and to contribute, check out the project over here… Black Ibis Kickstarter
