Eta Carinae - a short silent comic
Dispatches from a small business in
Materials: paper, gouache, ink, digital drawing, paint, crayon
Eta Carinae is the collected and expanded silent, weekly comics I made between April-June 2020, shared online via my Instagram and website.
What began as drawing in lockdown, these weekly comics became a story in their own right, and in the latter part of 2020 I began to expand these to become a fully silent story.
As for the name? Eta Carinae is a real eruptive, variable star around 7,500 light-years away. In the 1800's it underwent a massive outburst, releasing almost as much energy as a supernova. Yet, it survived, and continues to emit light more than five times that of the sun.
"The quietness of this comic and its gentle rhythm remind us that the soft moments that make up our lives can be, upon reflection, an opportunity to connect to the essential silence and patterns of the cosmos. Rozi Hathaway has again opened my heart to the eternal."
-- Daniel Elkin, Editor-in-Chief SOLRAD

Very fast shipping and well packaged, arrived in perfect condition. Postage charges were spot on and item was well priced Little drawing on the front of the padded envelope was a nice addition to the package. Bought as a gift but had a look through. Felt well made and liked how it was more about the images than on the text. The artwork seemed to add far more to the story than words ever could. Would recommend and will keep an eye out for future works
I bought a few of these colouring books as gifts. The illustrations are lovely and the seller kindly signed them. They arrived well packaged with a beautiful thank you note and painted envelope. All of Rozi Hathaway's comics are a feast for the eyes and great service; recommended!
