HOAX; Psychosis Blues- My version
One of the best projects I’ve had the pleasure to be involved with is HOAX:Psychosis Blues, a 2014 graphic novel by the poet Ravi Thornton detailing her relationship with her troubled brother Rob, HOAX alternated between biograhical scenes drawn by Leonardo M.Giron, and more expressionistic interpretations of Rob’s poetry, illustrated by Bryan Talbot, Hannah Berry, Karrie Fransman, Rian Hughes, Ian Jones, Roz Hathaway, Rhiana Jade, Julian Hanshaw and myself. I went to town on an early chapter dealing with Rob’s experience of institutionalalisation.
As a nice unifying touch, the poetry sections ended up being lettered in a font based on Rob’s handwriting. Along the way, however, I lettered a version myself. | thought you might like to see a few pages.
The book turned out great, well reviewed all over the shop, and I highly recommend it. You can get it from the publishers Ziggy’s Wish here: http://www.ziggyswish.com/store/p2/HOAX_Psychosis_Blues.html
