I’ve been busy preparing for my new job as a lecturer in Digital Media in Canterbury Christ Church university, but I couldn’t resist posting a link to this remarkable concept.

Ewig Mein / Forever Mine – Prolog Episode 0/7

‘Forever Mine’, is a dark and thrilling series of motion comics starring the protagonist Linda Kaminski.

The artwork has a rich expressionistic aesthetic that compliments the dark undertones of the narrative. The German-based series has English captions in the Youtube videos, which can be accessed on the lower UI of the video panel.
