This blurb was written when this comic page first went online. It might not accurately reflect the current state of the RACIANTAU project. Consider it a piece of history.

Sometimes we catch ourselves using words/phrases like “just a cartoon(ist),” which is a real shame because we don’t really believe in that “just a” formulation back here. In fact, we take a bit of pride in the fact that the default cuteness of RACIANTAU allows for the, ahh … tension you see above.

the story: I Live In A Senseless Town

Dive into the tortured and erratic mindscape of a young woman (Racia Aster) as she feverishly imagines a bleak future, and the options open to her and her society within it, over the course of one day in a charming cafe in their Senseless Town.

the comic: RACIANTAU

An ongoing study in comics, storytelling, and philosophy, RACIANTAU is a comics anthology structured in the form of an essay. The title of the project (pronounced /rɔsiɑntoʊ/) is a contraction of the names "Racia" and "Antau" — the two main characters. The kids try to make sense out of a senseless world of VIOLENCE, IMPERMANENCE, ISOLATION. Anxious about the FUTURE OF OUR SPECIES, they find themselves face to face with the VOID WHICH CONSUMES ALL THINGS. In each story, one or both of them inch closer towards self-realization.


We're a self-taught comic-making duo with absurd politics and philosophy. We've made every page out of a desire for exploration and improvement.
