Kurdt is my first full length graphic novel. It explores the tension between being yourself and being what others expect you to be. It tells the story of somebody searching for meaning in his life.Somebody that doesn’t idolize Kurt Cobain, but sees him as a road companion.
The story focusses on the first 25 years of Cobain’s life instead of the two last years that lead up to his death. It doesn’t focus on the rock star, but on Kurt as a human being just like you and I. Less sensational, but more interesting. Maybe we can all get something out of his suicide?
The project started in September 2015 in Seattle and is planned to be finished by mid 2017 in Brussels. I am looking for a publisher so you’ll be able to read it in paper form by end 2017.
