The project : "When Do Skeletons Wake Up?"
When a young girl finds herself trapped in a world of artificiality and distant parents, she seeks
freedom in the form of drawing her own graphic novels. Will her cartoonish view of the world set
her free or keep her aching for change?
Jorja, otherwise known as Jorj, finds herself stuck in a world of artificiality. In a quiet house where
everyone eats separately in their rooms, she finds herself absorbed in drawing her own comic books
starring skeletons. The drawings portray her fantasies of growing up and her struggles with her
parents. In hopes to feel powerful, she runs off to her local junkyard where she sets her graphic
novel free in the form of paper planes.
