What A Life


Full colour mini-comic (16 pages) inspired by an artists residency I went to in Portugal last year

"What a Life provides a brief encapsulation of a summer break at an artists’ residency in Portugal, explores the bonds that were formed, and hones in on one crucial moment of catharsis that sits at the very heart of this short account. Perkin is concerned in these pages not so much with a structured narrative as with bringing the reader into a state of mind; in creating a dreamy, languid sense of place and occasion. The essence of these ephemeral shards of time brought so vividly to life by her richly hued depictions of coastal environments."
