The Tale of Mono
The story starts plainly with “My name is Mono”. From there onward, an awkward (and up to this point – nonsensical) tale emerges. We know not who Mono actually is and what his story strives to portray. Nevertheless, he encourages his readers and viewers to take control of the story and submit bits of written imagination and ideas in order to fuel Mono’s graphic story.
Each post consists of a short idea that is in some way linked to the illustration it is paired with. The main point of this project is to encourage readers to work together in order to develop a unique story. The tale does not force the participating “storytellers” to set Mono as their protagonist since Mono himself is a storyteller who can be either subjective or objective, participative or absent, protagonist or antagonist, etc.
The project is still young and has yet to receive the attention it strives for, however with patience and good will, we hope to see Mono’s tale develop up to the point in which it surpasses his ambitions. What is now merely a blog, we hope to see grow in a full-fledged project that encourages readers from around the world to chip in with a bit of imagination to what hopes to be a story never to be heard before.
