Comics by Robert M Ball, Rian Hughes, Mike Medaglia and Karen Rubins

Comics by Robert M Ball, Rian Hughes, Mike Medaglia and Karen Rubins

In a coda to a trio of shows about the use of fine art in comics, Alex Fitch looks at graphic design in comics, in a panel discussion with Rian Hughes (2000AD), Karen Rubins (V&A artist in residence), Robert Ball (Winter’s Knight) and Mike Medaglia (The Comix Reader). Hughes talks about his segue from being a comics artist into a full time graphic designer and font creator, Rubins discusses the influence of medieval woodcut design in her comic Blood Magic, Ball examines his move from ‘mondo’ style superhero posters to silent fantasy graphic novels and Medaglia explores the connections between atypical panel layout and Taoist theory in his small press anthology Wu Wei. Recorded at Caption Festival, Summer 2013. (Panel Borders will return in the second week of January, 2014)
