A graphic novel about the creation of Pinocchio. The tale of what happened on that day so dark. The tale of a man named Salvatore.
This is not just another re-imagining ancient folklore "Pinocchio", this is "Pain from the Scar on a Wooden Heart", a story about passion, love, despair and mental instability. The internal message of the story is about the ability to see beauty and create life in the most derelict of those emotional circumstances. Thank you for viewing my Pinocchio project. Create a life.

This vlog is an inside look of my studio and my process. -Draden
This is the master copy of my main character Salvatore's sketch journal, Ive created for the over all production of Pinocchio himself. This was a very vital piece to this project and as it served as my sketch journal to plan out schematics and process for the construction of my Pinocchio. For the higher pledges I will be offering to recreate very few copies of this beautiful hand bound notebook.
This piece is only available on the highest pledge. This is a 5x7 backpack sized scratch board sketch book I made to travel with when I attend conventions and shows around the country to promote Pain from the Scar on a Wooden Heart. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, for I do not sell sketchbook work and I have never sold a full fledged book of my sketch book. This is my very first scratch board sketch book of Pinocchio drawings.
I only wish I could tell each and every one of my followers how grateful I am for the support to allow me to see this project to it's precipice of creation. Help me take this last step in the completion of this story, create this life with me, we have much philosophy of our individual experiences to discuss after each of us reads "Pain from the Scar on a Wooden Heart: A Pinocchio story by CJ Draden". With our most sincere thank you, Pinocchio and I welcome you to our world.
