Reference noteAfter quite a traumatic accident where I broke my jaw in February of 2009, I decided to try and capture this confusion in a graphic design paperback novel.

For the first time I purposefully blocked my rational and logical approach to design and tried to depict the confused state of mind I experienced during the month of February 2009 that inevitably led to an entirely changed lifestyle and approach to critical design thinking.

The novel is as confusing as the momentous year 2009 was for me.

Be advised, strong language use occurs in the novel. Not for under 16s.
