- Full Description
Best known for his Sandman collaborations with Neil Gaiman, McKean's own graphic novel Cages won multiple awards for Best Graphic Album. Here is his new original graphic novel based on the life of Paul Nash, a surrealist painter during World War I. A real soldier’s memoirs, a moving piece about how war and extreme situations change us, in Nash’s case by turning his landscapes into powerful and fantastical psycho-scapes.
Dave McKean is an illustrator, photographer, comic book artist, graphic designer, filmmaker and musician. His work incorporates drawing, painting, photography, collage, found objects, digital art and sculpture. After a trip to New York in 1986 during which he failed to find work as a comics artist, McKean met writer Neil Gaiman and the pair collaborated on a short graphic novel of disturbing childhood memories, Violent Cases, published in 1987.
This was followed in 1988 by a Black Orchid miniseries (again with Gaiman) and Hellblazer covers for DC Comics. Beginning in 1989 he produced the covers for Gaiman’s celebrated series The Sandman, all its collected editions and many of its spin-offs, and the Batman graphic novel, Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth, with writer Grant Morrison (1989). McKean has gone on to collaborate further with Neil Gaiman in both print and film.
