Flexing His Artistic Muscles
♦Scottish comic artist Frank Quitely, who has been working for nearly 30 years now, has a huge exhibition of his work, Frank Quitely: The Art Of Comics, at the prestigious Kelvingrove Museum. We went up last week to check it out with the artist himself and here’s a few photos…
Here is the blurb from the museum/ gallery itself
The Art of Comics also shows influence and context for this genre from the historical, with the universal structure of the heroic myth and the Scottish tradition of storytelling, through to the modern, with current affairs and technological development. Alongside the comic art there are digital interactives where you can discover the process of drawing a comic page or create your own superhero costume and get your photo taken with Superman flying overhead!
All in all, this exhibition is sure to excite comic book fans of all ages! So don’t miss this exciting opportunity for a journey from Krypton to Kelvingrove and Gotham to Glasgow!
The exhibition runs until October. Visit the website for further information
