'Nostalgia for Neverwas' is the graphic narrative of Casual Boy, a 3D object created inside of the computer program 'Poser' that becomes sentient and embarks on a search for something more meaningful than thin facades and faux appearances.   Casual Boy, upon realizing that he is only a hollow skin that is able to move about on display screens, searches the Internet for a time before such technology existed, when things were solid and substantial.   Stepping into images of the past, Casual Boy seeks to live in a previous time, yet he is unable to resolve the conflict of his own nature.
