Cities of Aqualithia
In the vast oceans of Aqualithia, seven floating cities travel on the backs of colossal crustaceans. From them, a fleet of biomechanical ships brings back riches from all corners of the world.
One such vessel helmed by Captain Cameron is tasked with finding the sunken remains of an ancient lost city, the origin of their culture. Along with his trusty crew, an old priest, and an unwilling prisoner, he has to brave natural and unnatural dangers to uncover the past.
Little does he know the secret he seeks can destroy everything he loves. Under the pitch-black ocean floor, gigantic monsters buried long ago will rise again. He will have to choose between friends he comes to care for or accomplishing his mission.

A personal graphic novel is a long-term commitment, a project I should be excited about even after countless hours. So, I made a list of my favorite things.
1) The colorful and alien worlds of Moebius;
2) The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau;
3) The daily life of a buddy road trip;
4) Giant monster fights;
5) H. P. Lovecraft books.
I want to make a book full of pages I can't wait to draw, characters I want to spend time with. If I have a good time making the book, the readers should, too.
