midnightRUN is a work of fiction presented as a black and white, 208 page graphic novel. It follows the character Jamie Matheson and the events surrounding a handful of street gangs made up of the homeless. This work was originally intended to explore human nature and to be a light-hearted short story but took on a much grimmer tone than originally intended.

My advice to future students...

Pick a theme and subject matter that interests you – it will make your experience a whole lot easier and more rewarding! Also, prepare a realistic work schedule and stick to it as best as you can.
