Adam is a reclusive artist whose romantic self-delusion has led him to believe his work is the result of having ink for blood. His delusion becomes so great that he sees himself in the form of an artwork he spies in a gallery. It is the creation of Sam; another artist who, in a bizarre encounter, will force Adam into re-evaluating the authenticity of his art and isolated lifestyle.

Director and artist Max Jedwab designed the ‘Blue Boy’ paintings and artwork, early designs of which can be seen below. As Adam draws all his work in blue ink, and believes he has ink for blood, vivid blue ink is a design theme that will feature across titles, credits, social media sites and posters.
