The entertainment world today sometimes feels like a race to the bottom of who can be darker, grittier, and more nihilistic. Shrimp Cult Press is the antithesis of the dark, the gritty, and the oppressively tragic. It's about fun stories that make you laugh with beautiful artwork that makes you stare. It's a breath of fresh air in a world that can sometimes be too much.
Shrimp Cult Press was started in 2022 by Peter Davoust. While looking for a new career, Peter realized that one of the most important things in our human world is story. People love stories, and the stories we hear influence how we think about the world. They have the power to heal, the power to inform, and the power to change our minds. He decided that he wanted to use his skills to not only breath life into his own stories, but to be able to green-light other beautiful stories, and to support other artists and authors who want to tell uplifting, absurd, silly stories that bring people joy.
