However, I can now state for a FACT that Julian Hanshaw is indeed very rad – and this is because I have just seen his finished artwork for the HOAX graphic novel.
And I mean freakin-amazin-my-oh-my-oh-my-wow. You are in for such a TREAT!
Julian has a blogspot (fromjuliansbrain) and has posted ‘two tiny, tiny slithers from two of the pages’ there, along with this missive:
“Ravi Thornton (Brin & Bent and Minno Marylebone) has rounded up 10 outstanding names of the British Graphic Novel world and somehow I managed to sneak in when no one was looking.
Names such as Bryan Talbot and Hannah Berry have been given sections to illustrate of Ravi’s deeply personal project.
To find out more about this wonderful project and how in God’s name I was invited along for the ride, have a peek here [Ravi’s website]!”
So not only devastatingly talented, but endearingly humble too. What a lovely man.
