I am currently working on a four page short story comic. It is a true story and revolves losly around the subject of climate and the melting of ice. So far I am done with the storyboard and I am going to start with the finalization in the next days. I forgot to translate it in this version but I will do so for the next update. Until then you’ll have to make do with my little synopsis below.

The story starts with me and a friend sitting in a café during summertime. It is very hot and I express that I can not understand why my friend would drink a hot chocolate during a time like this. I continue with describing how the ice in my glass melts so fast that I can almost watch the process. While saying this I am reminded of a winter about 20 years ago that was so cold that the Baltic Sea almost completely. My parents, my brother and me made a trip out to the sea and were astonished to see big chunks of ice sticking out. Almost like the famous painting by Caspar David Friedrich. Of course my brother and me get very excited about all the ice and we come back to our parents with big pieces of ice that we want to take home as a souvenir. All efforts of our parents trying to tell us that ice won’t hold out for long are in vain and so we go back home. The story ends with me being surprised of seeing the ice turn into water…
