"With it’s (literally) eye catching cover, The Empty Space intriques with a mainly blank white image. Inside, the book is a slight meditation on loss and the space left behind when someone (in this case, the cat referenced on the cover) is no longer around.(…) The book doesn’t end on a sad note, more one of recogntion that time affects one’s sense of loss, and while possibly never leaving, diminishes it’s potency." --Derek Brazell, AOI - Association of Illustrators"The Emptiness Comic is an unusual tale of mourning after the death of your favorite animal. A child accompanied by Pustki after a cat goes through the classic five stages of mourning. Without unnecessary tenderness or patting the head, because it will be better and forget. Loss is quite a natural element of life here, and this is what is most captivating in this short comic." --Monime.pl
