greenbelts & gardens
A downloadable book of rituals
GREENBELTS & GARDENS is representative of the spirit in which i created the Never Alone game jam and its first theme, "Into the Forest". i hesitate to call it a game. it really just uses the format and context of tabletop game writing to lay out instructions for rituals.
this is also a work intended to embody the essence of what "fenced forest" means. these rituals are designed to promote engagement with the natural within the context of a world cemented over and locked behind gates.
what i have posted here is a preliminary draft for what will eventually become a printed zine. my day job is at a store which sells some work by local creators and shop employees, and i hope to develop this into a polished, self-published handmade book of high enough quality for them to sell before my tenure there is done.
all of the art is mine, and should be considered only a sketch.

this game was created on the occupied land of the Duwamish. this creator supports returning all lands, ceded and unceded, to the care of Indigenous people.
