Fearing that his facial hair may be trying to communicate with him, an idealistic slacktivist undergoes a surreal metamorphosis in an alternate future Toronto.
So goes the official pitch.
To elaborate: The Beard is an irreverent exploration of itchy id impulses, eroding social etiquette, well-meaning idiocy, insidious ego worship, the allure of exploratory artists and the search for purpose in a world bursting at its seams with redundancy.
It's also a multi-media digital comic presented as an enriched PDF document on www.trinkettrance.ca.
This means that if you spend some time hunting and clicking around on the fantastic artwork by Ryan Stanley, you’ll find links to exclusive downloads or streams by bands and artists featured in the story, score cues, sound effects, reference pages and whatever else we think of as we figure this thing out in front of you.
Thanks for reading and we welcome any thoughts on the project.
