How This Book Came To Be:
My grandma gave me a Lego octopus and Bionicle gorilla for Christmas and I had put them both on my desk, the octopus riding the gorilla, and I thought it would be a fun print. While making the print, I came up with the idea of them solving weird crimes. Originally, it was going to be set in the 70’s (as it was partially inspired by Kolchak) but I decided on the Victorian era (as it was influenced more by Sherlock Holmes) and blending the classic literature of that era and the pop culture ideas of today. It was also one of my earliest series to NOT be a comedy, or one based solely on a comedic tone. It was my second series where all the art was by ink brush and marker.
