Bronwyn is an Australian independent comic that focuses on the adventures of Bronwyn, a Celtic warrior in the ancient world. The comic is a blend of fantasy, the ancient history of the Celts and the mythology that shaped their world.
HISTORY OF THE BOOK:
The tale of Bronwyn came about after I began to look into the Irish ancestry of my family tree. I have always loved myths and legends
WHATS IN THE NAME:
The name is actually from a woman, now a fiend who was my supervisor from my time volunteering at my local art gallery. Throughout my book I borrow the likenesses of close friends, making this book even more special to me.
