Volume one of the Where Yawns Go chronicles features the first two chapters in a series about Jiggs and his wanderings over Yawnder to find the mystical nature of inspiration in the hopes of creating something truly unique. Chapter one is a revised version of Wanderer of Yawnder, first released as a standalone book in 2013. Chapter 2, Further Over Yawnder, is a whole new story available for the first time in this book.
Dart creates these narrative bookworks to present the story that has been developing throughout the Yawnder series of drawings that he has been exhibiting for over a decade. The story chronicles the adventures of his alter ego Jiggs and also features writing by Jiggs himself. Published in 2019 as a limited artist edition, Where Yawns Go: Volume 1 brings together drawings completed up to 2015.
Currently, Dart is working on Volume 2 that will present the next two chapters in this epic tale. The new chapters will be titled Within Beyawnder and Old Fields, Revisited, and they will feature drawings that have been exhibited from 2015-2020 along with more writing from Jiggs. You can see some of these drawings in the links under the Exhibitions menu above. Meanwhile, Dart is developing animated versions of works from this series in order to present them on new platforms.
