Travis Blair, creator and writer of The Zarf, put together an interesting experiment called the Zarfling Exhibit. According to Travis, “Zarflings are creatures that illustrate the range of emotions we all feel on a given day. Their habitats represent seasons, which affect the moods of many of us. Zarflings and their habitats have been ‘discovered’ by several talented webcomic artists.”
Travis collaborated with eight comic artists, who each chose a basic emotion and drew a monster that would embody that emotion. The Zarflings are shown in their mild, basic and intense emotional stages. It’s a very interesting concept with some great art. Go check it out.
