An artist spent 2 years illustrating a comic about ‘Death’. And the result is pure perfection.

Filmmakers Peter Davis, Eric Laplante and Hunter Schlesingers take a look at the whimsical mind and process of Nicholas Gurewitch, creator of “The Perry Bible Fellowship,” as he struggles to finish his long overdue book, “Notes on a Case of Melancholia.”

Three years ago, Gurewitch raised $100,000 on Kickstarter to produce a picture book about Death and his despair of his kid — an affectionate “Little Death” who simply doesn’t have what it takes to carry on the family business. He hand-etched all the illustrations, giving the story a Gothic atmosphere.

But the book is over a year and a half late.

Gurewitch explains the project and the work he’s doing on it — including the creative process that people don’t see. He’s devoted his entire life to the book — and it’s all that he ever thinks about.
