The Beard

by Trinket Trance
Fearing that his facial hair may be trying to communicate with him, an idealistic slacktivist undergoes a surreal metamorphosis in an alternate future Toronto.

The Beard is an irreverent exploration of itchy id impulses, eroding social etiquette, well-meaning idiocy, insidious ego worship, the allure of exploratory artists and the search for purpose in a world bursting at its seams with redundancy.

At www.trinkettrance.ca, The Beard is a multi-media digital comic presented as an enriched PDF document. This means that if you spend some time hunting and clicking around on the fantastic artwork by Ryan Stanley, you’ll find links to exclusive downloads or streams by bands and artists featured in the story, sound effects, reference pages and whatever else we think of as we figure this thing out in front of you.

The first five pages are collected as a PDF chapter with enriched content (audio triggers, links, etc..) at www.trinkettrance.ca
Would love some feedback on how that side of things is functioning if anyone gets a chance. Thanks for reading!
More of the story is already available with enhanced digital content at www.trinkettrance.ca
The story stands fine on its own, but The Beard is also an experiment in what can be done with a
"digital" comic, without it taking on game-changing aspects of another medium, like motion.
