Author's Statement

Lola is a dark and twisted concept I came up with in 2009 about a girl who goes in search of answers after the tragic loss of a loved one. I wanted to counterbalance the dark and tragic story with lighthearted--simple-silhouette visuals--and a time consuming and original coloring technique. Together working in harmony to what promises to be a unique final experience.

When the story came to me It was one of those moments of inspiration--I was laying in bed--half asleep--when I suddenly had a flood of ideas. I immediately jumped out of bed-got to a desk-and started writing and sketching and didn't stop til' morning.

The story and the characters are always on my mind--and I've really dedicated the last few years to making this project a reality. This graphic novel follows a style and story that is more true to my heart than anything I have ever done and I hope it comes across and appeals to you.

In the darkness she continues to play.

She pretends to haunt.

She wishes she could stay.
