Relative Scale has something for everyone, it starts with with delicate small ideas - as complex as any, but told gently - and slowly builds towards more elaborate experiences and understanding in our world.

Each story has a different tone and voice, speaking volumes to Godsell's talents, and matches the overall message of that particular story.

Some will make you cry, feel lonely, smile, shout, laugh, much like the way life goes.
