BREAKS
Everyone wears a mask. What we see of people on the surface is so rarely what’s ticking underneath. And, in Cortland Hunt’s case, what he’s hiding might just be more than Ian Tanner is prepared for. Breaks is the story of two young adults coming to terms with who they were, who they are and who they’ll become. It’s a love story…but a little broken.
Writer/Creator: Emma Vieceli & Malin Ryden
I love making art and words have comic babies together.
