Grandville Print now available to pre-order!
This year, the Lakes International Comic Art Festival asked seven artists to produce a piece of artwork each for a special limited festival edition of 60 high quality A3 giclee prints on beautiful paper to raise money for the event. Bryan drew this Alphonse Mucha-inspired poster of Billie from the Grandville series. The other prints are by Sean Phillips, Emma Vieceli, Mark Buckingham, Rian Hughes, Duncan Fegrado, Doug Braithwaite and Junko Mizuno. They will be available from the Brewery Arts Centre during the festival and are available to pre-order now. To see the other prints or to pre-order click here.
