And ther by ordenaunce of the quene ther was set a quest of ladyes on Syr Gauayn. And they iuged hym foreuer whyle he lyved to be with all ladyes, and to fyghte for her quarels, and that euer he shold be curteys, and neuer to refuse mercy to hym that asketh mercy.
– Sir Thomas Malory, Le Morte Darthur (1485)
My ongoing comics project tells the story of Sir Gawain, King Arthur’s nephew and knight of the Round Table. His mission: to be the champion of all women!
Gawain is a long-term project on which I work in my spare time. This comic is my hobby project, which started to germ when I was fifteen and only came to blossom almost fifteen years later. My drawings are far from perfect and my writing is not perfect either. But this project means very much to me, and I have every intention to do exactly what I like with it. I fully expect to work on it until I am ninety (and beyond, if I should get that old). What can I say: I am a teensy bit slow…
