About the Book
"Charcoal Grey Days" is a little book I was inspired to make by the Dave McKean comic "Cages." The art is black and white with some shades of grey. The story is broken up into three chapters or acts. While the chapters don't immediately relate to one another the fact is that they're eventually meant to. The book reads as it was written, as a preamble to more of a story. The book is a novella and is meant to intrigue the reader.

I have an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from Goddard College. The two books on Blurb are for sale. I created these books over a course of 8 months; from the late Summer of 2007 until the middle of the Winter of 2008. This time of my life was spent working towards my Master's degree. The books are autobiographical at times; at times they are whimsical and strange. The labor put into them was definitely a labor of love. The stories and artwork I created in these comics went towards fulfilling my degree. I'd like to invite you to read them here and if you enjoy them, to possibly order one for yourselves. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org and look forward to hearing from you, or just reading your comments or questions. You can also see more of my paintings and photographs at www.pauljlroot.com. I basically wrote and illustrated "The Fetch and The Fool" first, with "Charcoal Grey Days" coming shortly after. They were both inspired by the work of Dave McKean and Neil Gaiman.
