Erik Petri is a well-known danish Illustrator with roots in cartooning and has a great fondness for complex subjects, that can be challenging to translate visually. On this project, he has worked closely with the author and a group of psychiatrists from the Aarhus and Aalborg hospital, who are the expert panel in this particular illness case story. The comic book has been tested on children who suffer from seizures. He found this very insightful so that he could be sure that he was faithful to their experience. When he is not visualizing other people’s stories, he works on a larger comic opus about a symbolist painter, which he both draws and writes.
