- “BRITAIN’S MOST ISOLATED CARTOONIST” -
RIFFS ON HIS MOVEMENT FROM THE COMIC,
TO THE NOVEL,
& BACK AGAIN.
Born in coastal Suffolk in 1977, Jonathan Chandler studied film under Tony Hill. After film school he fell in with the Famicon Collective. After a decade and a half of working in the comics mediumship he earned himself the moniker of ‘Britain's most isolated cartoonist.’ His works have been described as 'scorched-earth sex nightmares,' often playing out as Darwinian struggles in bleak undefined landscapes. His recent efforts include collected works in 'Another Blue World' and the ongoing John’s Worth, both from Breakdown Press, and the summer smash hit of 2016 You Are Crumbling My Jonathans from Famicon Express. Last year also saw the release of his first novel, crime thriller Bad Man Standing, from Landfill Editions. He is resident artist for the Folk Horror Cinema Club. Follow him @newmancruise.
