Electric Dreams, my homage to one the greatest sci-fi films ever, Blade Runner, was originally published in my art blog as a six-part picture story, where narration and dialogue were written below the drawings. It was the longest picture story I had done, and after finishing it, there was bit of an empty feeling and a sense of exhaustion. Such was an effort I put into it but I thought it turned out better than I had ever imagined. That's why it has felt bad when update by update it gets pushed back deeper into archives. So I decided to give it a new life by turning the story into a graphic novel, and added three new scenes, making it in movie terms 'an extended edition'.

HOLY SMOKES.

That was a damn masterpiece! I loved every second of it! Your story, art, and direction were just synced so well with each other. I would pay to see this made into a movie. Hell I'd help produce it even!

Bravo mate, bravo!
