Barnaby Richards’ illustration always stands out: for issue#1 he’s created a hauntingly beautiful silent comic The Old Flame, filled with love and, of course, its associated heartache. A real show-stopper.
Barnaby’s work has graced the pages of the Guardian, Independent and Observer newspapers and he’s illustrated for Walker Books and others. His most recent comics projects include a collaboration with Ellen Lindner called Art History Dropouts, exploring their experiences as arts students, and a beautiful illustrated book with Tanya Meditzky called Two Sentences. I have it on good authority that both are available in Gosh! comics in London where Barnaby himself has been sighted on occasion. He’s also been chronicling his time spent living in Beirut during one of its periods of uneasy peace during the 1980s. Always challenging and fascinating, I’m really looking forward to seeing what readers make of The Old Flame.
Don’t forget: issue #1 is now available to pre-order from the shop.
