Succinctly, reMIND is a mystical, sci-fi about faith, love and brain transplantation. reMIND is an all ages sci-fi about faith, underwater lizard-men and brain transplantation. Jason was inspired by comic artists in the 90′s when Jason refined his drawing style and then was influenced by Miyazaki’s movies and storytelling over the last decade.
