Tabula Rasa (a clean slate): a graphic short story by brian koschak

"Tabula Rasa (a clean slate)" is a 4-page graphic short story based on a dream i had a few years ago, just as my inevitable mid-life crisis was kicking in.  it was cathartic working on it over the years, chipping away whenever there was time.  i felt the story became a sort of metaphor/riddle that my brain concocted, and seemed to challenge me to do something productive with. i suspected that once the story was finished, and if i could get it to look just how i imagined, than it might signify the end of the crisis.  and it did.

the unofficial official soundtrack is "Albatross" by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, from 1968.  it is a beautiful, classic piece of music.  listen to it HERE.

i hope you enjoy "Tabula Rasa (a clean slate),"  and if anyone is interested, there is a free high res pdf available for download HERE.



the past is gone

it has burned to the ground.

so leap into the future

and chase the unknowable horizon.
