Strip! – The art of Rian Hughes

Excerpt from Tales From Beyond Science, illustrated by Rian Hughes for 2000AD

Excerpt from Tales From Beyond Science, illustrated by Rian Hughes for 2000AD

Concluding our month of shows about ‘British Mavericks’, artists whose work is surprisingly avant-garde for the mainstream, Alex Fitch talks to comic book artist and graphic designer Rian Hughes about his work, from his early days in the small press and discovering European comics through Escape magazine to working on 2000AD and its spin off title, Revolver. Alex and Rian also talk about the latter’s reasons for becoming a full time graphic designer in the mid 90s and leaving comics for over a decade, before becoming interested in the medium once again over the last couple of years.

5pm 26/11/09, Resonance 104.4 FM (London) / streamed at / podcast online tonight…
