a graphic novel series

COTTONS is a dark fantasy in which a female rabbit named Bridgebelle, weighed down by nightmarish memories of her past, has to protect her village from a pack of sociopathic foxes planning an occult ritual designed to unleash an unspeakable evil and total destruction.

The first book is The Secret of the Wind.

Bridgebelle also struggles with a grand moral dilemma — how can she be true to her creative soul while working for a living? Within this conflict is a coming-of-age story for the post-information age: growing up for this little cotton means learning to find the balance between art and commerce without losing her individuality and her identity.

Told as a series of three roughly 300-page graphic novels, COTTONS is more than an exciting animal adventure: it’s a meditation on art, myth, magic, and love.

The second book is THE WHITE CARROT — available Feb 2020.
