My name is Inês Bravo. I’m a 21 year old portuguese artist and I’m the author of this webcomic.
Hartwin is a dark fantasy story I invented when I was 16.
I’ve been working on it non stop since and nothing has given me as much purpose and excitement as this project.
I was inspired not only by my own culture but also by my own happy nostalgic times and the struggles I had with mental illness. I intend to convey all those complicated feelings into a story that can be read by everyone.
My biggest artistic influences for this story are Hayao Miyazaki and C.S. Lewis, whose works represent the meaningful growth of adolescents and the ability to express the inner mind through visual expression.
