Craftowne, Part 1
Art & Words By Billy Simms
Craftowne is a visual novel created by multimedia artist Billy Simms. Originally presented as an addendum to an art installation about the fictional town depicted in the story, the work explores universal themes of American suburban life and the isolationism and loneliness it can harvest in the souls of the young. This is the first in a 4-part serialization of the work. View Part 2 here.
