Intricate, even exquisite - but never immaculate, Theo Ellsworth’s Capacity is a mind turned inside out. Ellsworth’s careful line gives shape to profound and profoundly silly thoughts alike, bringing a visionary, startling new life to the doubts and hopes that are so familiar to everyone.
This one is a parallel reality shock absorption mask. The idea is that if you witness a parallel reality, putting on this mask will help your brain cope with the shock, so you can enjoy yourself instead of freaking out. It’s good to be prepared.” -Theo Ellsworth
"The Understanding Monster is the comics series I’ve been quietly working on for quite awhile now. If all goes well, the first installment will come out in October. Finishing it on time is my ultimate art goal this year. This book begins a story I’m hoping to tell for a long time to come. Making this comic has been the weirdest and most exciting artistic process I’ve experienced by far. I’ve been pretty secretive about it so far, but as I get closer to finishing it, I’ll probably start talking about it more."- Theo Ellsworth
