Here’s a new story I’m currently working on, which started as a quick sketch with no intention of doing much with it. But as stories go, this one just spoke to me and I knew that I wanted to work with it to find out where it’s going.
It begins with a self-made tin man who lives in a landfill. He loves gardening and his three friends help him out and keep him company. But his home is in danger of being swallowed up by the heaps and mounds and mountains of trash that the near by city dumps every Wednesday. Moreover, the city itself is in a stinking trouble, of which it’s unaware … yet. It all starts to change when one Wednesday a girl named Delilah shows up at the landfill. This story deals with environmental themes that are close to my heart, along with cooperation and friendship.
