Art of Pho – now in motion

Published On January 18, 2012 | By Joe Gordon | Animation, Comics

The Observer/Cape/Comica award winning Julian Hanshaw drops us a line to alert us to a rather fun adaptation of his unusual and rather cool graphic novel The Art of Pho (published by Cape), into a motion comic. It’s a pretty neat adaptation with some interactive elements – you have to put the key in the ignition to start proceedings, stamp on the accelerator pedal to move the car through the landscape and so on – which is a nice touch, moving it away from being a simply passive experience. You can check out the motion comic verison of Pho here, and Julian has a new work, I’m Never Coming Back, due this spring from Cape.
