Metallic Taste Episode 1 PDF Download

First episode of an original series about disease, vampires, and being an outcast in the future. Original writing and illustration by the artist.


Metallic Taste is a story spanning over a series that I plan to slowly write. I consider it a serious side project to everything I am doing, as I always want to write a continuous story and to be constantly drawing but sometimes don’t have ideas that go together. This is a project that develops with time.

I intend to write a sci-fi/fantasy story, as that is my interest. The main character would be considered a shadow type character in literary terms, but still a hero. The main plot will be pushed by the idea that there is a subculture of humans who suffer a disease which makes them resemble vampires, as they need to replenish their blood in order to survive. Like often in real life, they are segregated and pushed to the outskirts of society along with other subcultures, such as GMO humans that have partial animal mutations. I also intend on explore other groups of people from our current time, as this is a huge interest for me just as in filmmaking. The original inspiration is a disease called aplastic anemia and a very real experience with it in my life.

Work-in-Progress and discussion of this comic is on my sketchblog.

  • 5 star review  Karolina painted a beautiful watercolour of my cats as a tribute piece. She is very professional and made the process very smooth. She took the time to understand what I was looking to depict and delivered on it beautifully. Thank you Karolina.

    5 star review  Karolina painted a beautiful watercolour portrait of my one dog. She asked for multiple photos of my dog and wonderfully depicted my dog's personality by compiling the photos together into her own interpretation. My dog's goofiness and liveliness come through the painting so vividly. I have also purchased various prints from her online store and receive many compliments from visitors!

    5 star review  Karolina created a very beautiful painting for my husbands birthday. We sent her a few images and in her incredibly creative and talented mind made something memorable. We would recommend her for any creative work!!

  • 5 star review  Karolina runs a very professional online business. I commissioned her to do artwork for my indie film, including a movie poster, which I uploaded to IMDb with great satisfaction. She is versatile in the medium requested: for me, she worked in both pencil sketch and colours. She also provides a clear estimate of the cost and delivers on time too, with all of her labor clearly invoiced upon delivery. I highly recommend her! <3 :-)
