“I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
Project Crossroads features short stories created by a selection of Ireland’s rising comic stars. Each tale has been crafted with a unique personality and outlook, tied together with one artistic voice.
This is Project Crossroads.
Project Crossroads is an original anthology featuring three short stories, spearheaded by myself. For the title, I gathered some of the top Irish creators to craft stories which would challenge and excite the reader. On this title, I was not only editor, but I also illustrated the entire book and lettered one of the stories.
The three short stories range in genre and tone; 'Retired' is an action heavy, sci-fi thriller; 'Shift' is a teen horror set in the Irish country side; and 'Ducksworth's Last Stand' is a fantasy story with an unexpected twist. For each of these stories I attempted to compliment the tone of the story with my artwork, changing the techniques and materials I used to increase the impact of the narratives on the reader.
