CURVEBALL is an epic, sci-fi graphic novel about a waiter named Avery coping with the ending of a difficult relationship. Having spent years attempting to build something substantial with an indecisive sailor named Christophe, Avery stubbornly holds on despite the mounting evidence against him. The idea of the relationship has eclipsed its reality, and in Avery's already troubled life, the allure of something dependable is a powerful force.
Curveball focuses on the duality of hope and delusion - how ignorance is integral to surviving our day to day lives, but can be incredibly destructive if allowed to blossom into 'optimism'. It is the most universal of tales: a love story.
