Hey there! Thank you for your comment and thanks for taking a look at my stuff.
The SideTrip series began as an experiment into environment design for originally a comic. During the creation it was evident that creating it would require me a huge load of time so I decided to call off the comic for a more painting-by-painting series.
The boy has name, his name is Azure and he's one of the last humans to be on the planet. His friend is named Alex, the god of concealment or hiding. The world they travel is a world thousands of years from now, after humanity achieved utopia through a system of telepathic AI. The AI system remained in place for the next thousand years as humanity slowly dwindled in population, down to small tribes. The AI now curates, takes care, and attempts to preserve the last remaining race as well as the archives of the remains humans have left. Azure and Alex just so happen to be exploring that world.
SideTrip, in short is about the human legacy, memory, and loss. It's an ambient story that's only told through the two characters who explore the world until they reach what they call "home". No spoilers. I'll be making more paintings as time goes on. :)
