Cartoonist Lew Stringer posted an interesting article over on his blog a few days ago about the early career of Kevin O’ Neill, the comic artist who’s currently collaborating with Alan Moore on The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
I’m posting a link to it here, because as you can see, there’s some stuff visitors to this site may find interesting…
… and here’s the link…
Here’s Johnny, a documentary about comic artist John Hicklenton, will be showing on the UK’s More4 freeview channel this Tuesday 17th February at 10pm.
Some info from the official website…
Here’s Johnny enters the surreal world of renowned graphic artist Johnny Hicklenton, who is battling against Multiple Sclerosis. Living in an increasing state of immobility and frustration, Johnny escapes the confines of his frontroom through his artwork.
Through the expression of his brilliant and sometimes troubled imagination we learn about the disease that he cannot escape from.
Launched at the Science Museum on January 30th 2008, and premiering at South by South West film festival in March 2008, Here’s Johnny went on to win two prestigious Grierson Awards in November 2008. Winning both the ‘Best Arts Documentary’ and ‘Best Newcomer’ awards, Here’s Johnny is the first film ever to win two awards in the Griersons’ 36 year history.
