Självporträtt av Elin Hjulström Lord

My name is Elin Hjulström Lord and I love stories. Be it movies, books or the story behind a single illustration. But most of all I love comics. So whenever I can find the time I dive into my own comics projects, often in the shape of wordless, poetic stories featuring the cute character (of unknown species) named Ipp.

“The Wasteland was a peculiar place. At first glance you might take it for an ordinary landscape covered in a greenish fog. But as you approach the trees turn to skeletons of old machinery, ponds  to oil spill and islands to vast heaps of waste.

I called it home nonetheless.”

“We had exhausted the soil and drained our water supplies. We had taken so much and returned so little and now there was nothing left.

So we turned to the skies.”
