Joe Davies (Joeyzeki) is an illustrator and maker from Cardiff. He recently expanded his practice into graphic novels and sequential narratives to explore complex themes and topic through visual story telling. Joe finds inspiration from music, nature, science fiction, mythology and everyday life. He uses his work as a way to explore his thoughts and feelings and loves to world build, design characters and create a sense of wonder and intrigue within the viewer.
For my FMP I wanted to push myself outside of my comfort zone and aim to create a graphic novel, a task I’d never tried before. I gave myself the aim of keeping the story as close to a wordless narrative as possible with purely the images conveying the story and emotions. The story is set in a near future, lo-fi technology setting exploring anxieties caused by everyday life and the downward spiral the protagonist goes down.
