This is a short comic I wrote/drew, based on a lucid dream I had a few weeks ago. A bit surreal, as you might expect...

A bit more planning for the next chapter - this is prep sketch for a scene dubbed 'the shop' (because I'm imaginative like that).

The window designs have worked out well - with a bit of development these'lll definitely stay. The vending machines however need a bit of refinement - the design's a bit 'faked' at the moment - too square, not enough reference to create anything that feels real. So a bit more work needed there.

There's another glimpse of the bridge in the background, and Bobby can be seen in the third window aperture from the left.

webcomic comic fantasy animation story
Introduction
The Boy with Nails for Eyes is a part-animated webcomic by me, Shaun Gardiner.

The story follows a boy called Bobby, who lives in a grim little town by the sea, surrounded by chimneys, under a sky low as a ceiling.

The story opens as Bobby falling in love with a girl whose name he does not know and whose face he hasn't seen. The occurrence sparks a quest that Bobby must undertake to the town's heart, and an encounter with the smiling hunger that lurks there.

Here's a few things that've been said about the story:

"I feel bad about calling it a comic: it's a full-fledged multi-media experience... The Boy with Nails for Eyes [...] may well be one of the best web-comics (or web-comic experiences) to hit the Internet in a long time."
~ Mike Podgorski, Examiner.com

"...it's already obvious that this is going to be an extraordinary comic... [the] art is nothing short of amazing..."
~ Brigid Alverson, Comic Book Resources

"...in terms of experimenting with the notion of a comic embedded in the web, this is fantastic stuff... The art is fantastic."
~ Xaviar Xerxes, Comixtalk
