Behold! The next inspiring project from the BooksActually goes STGCC list of five is The Unsavoury Alphabet by Gene Whitlock aka The Danger Gene. As well as making some pretty solid funny books, Gene spends his days working as a full-on commercial artist.
“The Unsavoury Alphabet started in 2011 as an exercise to draw more than just kangaroos and koalas. That exercise evolved into a series of microstories before expanding into a behemoth and then getting reduced into a merry caper that eventually fell into the framing sequence of the upcoming Mike Blood P.I. series. The Unsavoury Alphabet is an homage to the noir stories of the 40s with just a touch of the nihilism of the 70s and the insanity of the 00s all mixed in with some Omaha the Cat Dancer and The Wind in the Willows. I hope you like it. If you don’t, I’ll send Mike around with a hammer!”
If you’re curious, you can check out his book at the STGCC which runs on 6 and 7 September at Marina Bay Sands. Meet and greet Gene on both days between 1:00pm – 1:45pm at booth #H21.
