There’s a lot to like in David Biskup’s portfolio. The Bristol-based illustrator has a unique and quirky style that’s rich in humor and character. Of all his work, I was most taken by Yuri, a silent graphic novel he worked on last year. Self-published, the book was a finalist in the ‘Ligatura Pitching’ competition from Poland’s Centrala Press and was Highly Commended at the Macmillan Children’s Book Prize 2012. I love the color and detail in his work!
‘Yuri’ tells the story of Yuri Valentin, an Eastern European rockstar who attempts to perform a concert at the Aral Sea. You can see a great selection of images from the book on David’s site here or purchase a copy of it though his shop. I look forward to hopefully seeing more silent graphic-novels from David in the future!
