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.

Nicknames are cute, if you care.

The way the bars of the birdcage obscure the Boss’s combover to showcase his true baldness were unintentional, but happily so, as I like the way it denigrates him with the humility of a look he’s desperately trying to avoid, since otherwise he looks rather cute, because I am incapable of intentionally drawing uncute things.

Seriously, in the storyboards he was supposed to look like a middle-aged sleazy car salesman. Where oh where did it all go wrong.

And he’s still sorta cute in that panel if you, like, care, AHHH, what a hassle.

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.
