The Space Between by Justin Skillstad

 

These are pages from the beginning of a story. Mixing symbols from my own visual vocabulary and ones already established along with dynamic composition and subtle patterns and patinas I aim to create a rich and powerful story about my understanding of the world. Having always sought after the worlds and lives in the books I once escaped to as a child I've found that my own story is just as rich and witchy, it just needs to be viewed from the right lens.  I'm excited to begin this one, and although I don't know what will happen next I can tell it will be a long and intricate one.
