Every Wednesday, join us as we highlight and celebrate a guest for the 2013 Stumptown Comics Festival. This week we turn our attention to Jon McNaught.
A printmaking instructor at the University of the West of England, McNaught's elegant illustrations (seen in the London Review of Books and New York Times) and simplistic style of storytelling have captivated audiences here in America and abroad. His recent books, Dockwood, Pebble Island, and Birchfield Close, are published through Nobrow Press. Delightful in design and content, McNaught's work has been praised by critics and creators a like, including Chris Ware who said of McNaught, "There are few younger comics artists with whom I feel a genuine aesthetic kinship . . . ." We're proud to partner with Reading Frenzy in presenting McNaught as a guest in 2013. To learn more about Jon McNaught, please visit: www.jonmcnaught.co.uk/
