I visit John Coulthart's blog Feuilleton a lot. I mean A LOT. So many of my internet image searches led back to his blog that I figured I had to check it out, and I was rewarded with an absolute bonanza of amazing and fantastic imagery, almost all of which seemed to appeal directly to my own personal aesthetic. John is also a brilliant artist and designer and he writes eloquently and articulately about both of these obsessions. Simply put, he is one of my heroes.
So, you can imagine my absolute shock and soaring joy when John briefly mentioned some kind words about my own Moby-Dick art in this blog post. John contributed a suite of illustrations exploring The Picture of Dorian Gray to The Graphic Canon, volume 2, which also contains several of my Moby-Dick illustrations. You really should look at these anthologies, they are big and thick and beautifully designed and remarkable and full of gorgeous art and comics.
Of the work in that volume, John wrote this about my own: "I especially like the Moby-Dick sequence by Matt Kish, a very different take on a very familiar tale." It is difficult to convey to you how thrilling this was, and remains for me.
Feuilleton is a great great blog and an amazing source of visual inspiration. Spend some time there. You won't regret it.
