The Art of Comics


We visited Kelvingrove Gallery in Glasgow recently with our eldest son and two of our grandchildren to see the exhibition ‘The Art of Comics’ which was brilliant.

The exhibition shows the work of Frank Quitely which is the pen name of Vincent Deighan (born 1968). Frank is a Scottish comic book artist. He is best known for his frequent collaborations with Grant Morrison on titles such as New X-Men, We3, All-Star Superman, and Batman and Robin, as well as his work with Mark Millar on The Authority and Jupiter’s Legacy.

The show had a large number of his initial drawings as well as the final colour images. I came away with some ideas for a photo project……

The exhibition is still on and runs until 1st October.
