Launch — Pebble Island

Next thursday Nobrow will launch their final pub­lic­a­tion of the year “Pebble Island” by Jon McNaught in their gal­lery in Lon­don.“Draw­ing from memor­ies of a child­hood home in the Falk­lands, Jon McNaught uses word­less com­ic strips and intric­ate prints to form a play­ful study of isol­a­tion and adven­ture; Chil­dren gath­er in sprawl­ing peat bogs where ruined mil­it­ary vehicles become secret bases, a fish­er­man settles down in his cluttered cab­in to watch the Sat­urday night movie, and sheep thought­fully wander the hills, graz­ing in the bil­low­ing grass.

McNaught’s pre­vi­ous pub­lic­a­tion Birch­field Close won crit­ic­al acclaim from com­ics enthu­si­asts, who saw it as a shin­ing example of the untapped geni­us of the Brit­ish Com­ics scene. Since then, Jon has been build­ing a cult fol­low­ing and we have every con­fid­ence that he will con­tin­ue to break new ground with his brand spank­ing new book.”
