Death of the Artist Summary

Death of the Artist by Karrie Fransman

Five Artists. Five Styles. All Written by One Author On 13 August 2013 graphic novelist Karrie Fransman invited four old friends from university to an isolated cottage on the misty moors of the Peak District to join her for a week of hedonism and creativity. Like Shelley and Byron before them, they would use the retreat to tell stories. Except these would be comics, collected together in this very book. The theme? The Death of the Artist. None of the five friends realised how appropriate this theme would become. The book weaves a single narrative across watercolour, digital art, photography, collage and illustration, exploring the themes of creation, destruction, and how we kill our inner artists as we grow up. It takes the graphic novel into entirely new realms.

"'Blown away by Death of the Artist by Karrie Fransman. A unique work of art - [a] sublimely funny and moving graphic novel." -- Sam Bain
"Genre-busting." -- Rachel Cooke * Observer *
