Singular is my first narrative story book–it’s about the world from the widest spaces to the smallest things and the sense that all things are connected even if we’re not sure how.
This book was started in the late 90’s and was written in highly fragmentary way over the decades since. It wasn’t until around 2020 that I decided to illustrate and clarify the story for itself. It wasn’t until 2022 that I decided to actually release it.
From the back cover:
“I don’t normally do this kind of thing.
Singular is a grainy overview of the gears and facets that shape the universe based on a simple premise: that the awareness inside you is the only thing you can be sure is actually real. Singular traces the edges and centers of our existence to find we are more than neighbors.
We are Singular.”
