The Beginners

the final part of a doppelgänger trilogy

The sloth, the genius, the addict, the preacher, there are parts of us all that operate only in the extreme. Brought on by blind ambition or deep rooted pain, these are the parts of ourselves that others seldom use.

For the third and final exploration into the world and themes surround the doppelgänger, Boca del Lupo delves into the lives of those and the parts of us all that survive on the fringes of society.

Last Office: part one of a doppelgänger trilogy
Hold You Head Tight: part two of a doppelgänger trilogy
