Hi! I'm Gwendolyn McLuhan, also known in various places as grendelline! I'm a 26 year old ghoul with a BFA and a passion for character creation and soft worldbuilding.
What I'm Working On
I'm a digital/watercolour/general mixed media artist who is developing a graphic novel!
This comic follows a Joan of Arc type character living in a post-post-apocalyptic fantasy setting as they try to reconcile their burgeoning gender and sexual identities with their deeply held faith and the strict roles and cultural norms in their recovering and developing society. It draws upon, in a vague way, my experiences as a queer, trans, and mentally ill teen growing up in a rural area while going through the Catholic school system. Y'know, fun and lighthearted fare. There's also a sad plant ghost and a morally alien 'fairy' thrown in there for good measure.
I also love to make zines! They are extremely fun. I tend to focus on themes of monstrosity, queerness, mental illness, and chronic illness and how they intersect and interact. I work through different themes and topics through fanzines as well! I love to explore the underlying implications of stories I'm invested in.Other zines I make tend to be explorations of different artistic media or just vibes I feel like putting out there quickly, easily, and cheaply.
I have a bunch of other stories and characters kicking around that I'd love to share with you as well!
What Your Support Means
I'm trans, queer, and mentally ill and I currently am living in my small hometown with my family. I would love to one day move to a city where I could feel safer presenting as visibly nonbinary and try living independently. The income provided by your pledge would go into my savings to help make this a reality!
