2. Tom Gauld's Goliath

Tom Gauld’s new graphic novel Goliath turns the classic biblical tale of David vs. Goliath on its head by telling the story from the giant’s perspective, and showing us that he mightn’t be such a bad guy after all.

Tom Gauld is one of my favourite cartoonists because of his ability to marry his dry wit with his perfectly reduced drawing style. Goliath is his first long-form graphic novel, but is a natural continuation of the work he’s done for the Guardian’s Saturday Review letters page, skewing art and literature with his refined stick-figures.

It’s also a continuation of the themes and parables of human conflict he explored with his previous book, the oversized The Gigantic Robot. I hope it is the first of many long-form works from him.

Be sure, too, to follow Tom on Flickr where he posts his weekly Guardian cartoons, and also shares bits of his process and pages from his sketchbooks. He has a full album of behind-the-scenes images from Goliath.

3. David Shrigley for Pringle of Scotland

Pringle of Scotland (not the potato chip people) commissioned this animation from David Shrigley for Milan Fashion Week. Full of silliness and funny drawings, just like animation should be!

6. (via Q & A with Tom Gauld | The Casual Optimist) Dan...



(via Q & A with Tom Gauld | The Casual Optimist)

Dan Wagstaff interviews Tom Gauld, whose book Goliath comes out next year from Drawn & Quarterly.

Tom talks about his process:

I sit and think and doodle in my sketchbook until I have a good idea. Then I’ll make rough pencil sketches on copier paper till I have things worked out visually. Then I hone these sketches on paper and in photoshop till I have a rough version of the image which I can send to anyone who needs to approve it. Then I will print out the image and use a lightbox to trace an ink version which I crosshatch then scan back into the computer where I can clean it up, tweak bits and add any colour. I love using the computer but I try to stay away from it till I’ve done most of the thinking for an idea, looked at it from all sides, because I feel that once the computer is involved things are on an inevitable path to being finished. Whereas in my sketchbook the possibilities are endless.

8. Flickr Sunday: Backwards Novel

Something about this evoked Edward Gorey’s The Unstrung Harp. Delightful work by Tom Gauld.
