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.

I was going to draw more extras in the background as silhouettes but decided against it because I worried it might detract from the intent of the page, which was to suggest an overbearing sense of social pressure against Racia. I shouldn’t tell you these things, though. I should let the work speak for itself. Or, wait … is this blurb part of the work, too? Is all that matters in the consumption of art the experience of that consumption? Wow, these are big questions. I don’t have any answers, though. If you’re looking for answers you’re looking in the wrooong place, my friend.

Oh, oh goodness. Was that … too soon? Are we … do you think we could be friends?

Oh no, I’m blushing, I have to stop. Ahhh!

the story: Battlemon

In a cheap but legally permissible knockoff world in the style of Pokemon or Monster Rancher we peek into the shared lives of a young woman (Racia) and her Battlemon partner (Bunners) as they navigate the expectations society has of them and they have of each other.

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.
