I got three new reviews of Sound of Snow Falling last week!
Andy Oliver wrote in his Broken Frontier review:
“An utterly captivating foray into the natural world that should definitely be on your “must-buy” lists at Safari Festival this weekend.”
Terry Abrahams’ Sunday Review: Sound of Snow Falling on Wildness: A Curated Literary Guide says:
“Charged with careful realism, this book—published by independent press 2dcloud, which specializes in comics—is beautiful. The quiet is palpable, the pacing is perfect, and the glimpse at the life of a pair of owls is all too brief.”
What for me was the most immediate and accessible part of the novel, was its depiction of winter light. The colour scheme is very restrained: umber, the colour used by the Dutch Baroque masters to give chiaroscuro shades, and near-monochromatic grayscale gradients dominate the work with blue. Some muted red is added here and there to give additional strength and contrast. For me, the effect is instantly recognizable. This is what winter light feels like.
Also, Tucker Stone wrote about my new Smash Pages interview on The Comics Journal blog, yay!
