Presenting Will Morris, winner of Emerging Talent British Comics Award 2013, and author of graphic novel The Silver Darlings.
Graduate from Camberwell College of Arts, Mr. Morris produces elegant illustrations using fine-liners and washes of ink. His work on The Silver Darlings has set the bar high, both in terms of art and story-telling. It has garnered well deserved attention and praise from his peers and predecessors including Nick Abadzis who said,
“Will Morris sculpts a world of wild, glittering seas and inner turmoil from delicate watercolour, expressive lines and sparse, potent words. You can practically smell the sea salt on his drawings. Superstition, luck – it’s all in the mind, isn’t it? The Silver Darlings makes irrational beliefs as tangible as waves, as biting as storm spray in your face. A beautiful book.”
