Vernon White’s ‘Birdhouse’ On The Way From SLG In February
Valentine’s Day may still be far, far, in the offing, but SLG’s February release of the “Birdhouse” OGN by Vernon White looks like it could have the heart to merit a pre-order.
Described as a modern fairytale, the story focuses on a corrupt king so hated by his subjects that there’s an attempt on his life. Now, with the castle effectively on lock-down, his lonely daughter feels more isolated than ever. The princess isn’t without hope, however. as she befriends a castle construction worker who is down with helping her escape to a seaside town far from her father’s reach.
According to white, the plot echoes traditional fairytale themes by design, but has a modern twist:
“My intention was to make the story completely straightforward while still giving the curiosity of something unusual,” said White in an official press release.
SLG has a new video trailer showcasing White’s black and white line work streaming online. Check it out after the jump.
White’s aesthetic looks like my cup of tea. Thoughts?
