In the Land of the Long Raincloud – a graphic novel

Master project at UNITEC Auckland, 02/2012 – 08/2013

› In this graphic novel I am recounting my personal story
of coming to New Zealand. In short episodes I show my
life in a student hostel in Auckland, my trips around the
country, the people I've met and the new things I learnt.

› See also my New Zealand diary as well as my explanatory
Master Thesis Visual Storytelling & Journeying as part of
this project.
