Telling stories in visual language
Arkanum, new graphic novel serial
Seven graphic novels told in a pure visual language without words; so everyone can understand the meaning and finds the way. I am searching for the source worldwide; in different cultures, styles and techniques (ranging from the Japanese comics, native art, renaissance paintings, Sahara cave art, Mayan sculptures) and travelling from east and west, from past to present, to tell the story in the clearest way.
