My nephew Philip Marion is a writer, illustrator, and practitioner in other media. He invented a comics universe called “Spoon & Packet” that he describes as “a miniature parable fora larger world”—
Meet Spoon and Packet, the unlikely duo whose rebellious spirits cause them to journey from a 1950’s diner through Hell to the center of the Earth in search of ancient truths with only a lab rat and a corkscrew to guide them.
Check out the website here. It’s of interest because comics, graphic novels, and the like have a huge following. Philip is a graduate of Lowell High School and Emerson College. He lives and works in the Los Angeles area with his wife, Luna, a musician, and a cat or two.
The Brush Gallery & Studios at Market Mills has an exhibit about the art of graphic novels coming up this fall. The show runs from Sept. 17 to Oct. 22. The exhibit will feature artists working on graphic novels, comics, and cartoons. Visit this page for details on submitting work and more info about the show.
