A 38-page graphic novel where Jon McNaught revisits his youth in the Falkland Islands.
About the Artist
Drawing from memories of a childhood home in the Falklands, Jon McNaught uses wordless comic strips and intricate prints to form a playful study of isolation and adventure; Children gather in sprawling peat bogs where ruined military vehicles become secret bases, a fisherman settles down in his cluttered cabin to watch the Saturday night movie, and sheep thoughtfully wander the hills, grazing in the billowing grass.
Barely six months from the release of his first book with Nobrow Press ' Birchfield Close', McNaught undertakes a 38-page graphic novel where he revisits his youth in the Falkland Islands. In his trademark silent storytelling style he covers two separate narratives, 'Pebble Island' and 'Broadcast', both set in these stark and unforgiving surroundings that nonetheless exude an air of tranquility and respite.
