More quiet fame

May 10, 2010

I’m not really very involved with the day to day comics scene in London so I was surprised to find this CBC story of a young man named Marc Bell winning the Doug Wright award.  I have seen some work somewhere, mistaking it for Kim Moodie. Apparently Kim Moodie, Greg Curnoe and Elsie Segar are influences in Marc’s work. Any photo’s of Marc Bell seem to be of the back of his head which is suitable for London really, where it is possible to live and work and be completely anonymous, to exhibit in Montreal and New York, and be entirely unknown in The Creative City where bears get shot and chickens can’t come home to roost.

Extensive articles and interviews at Drawn And Quarterly.
