This is a sketch that I did of Mr Gabriel Syme, it’s from one of my favourite books of all time – the swashbuckling, surreal … and ultimately somewhat religious forgotten CLASSIC!! The Man Who Was Thursday by GK Chesterton. I always wanted to turn it into a graphic novel … I reckon it’d make a great film as well … provided Hollywood didn’t butcher it of course.

It’s strength lies in the fantastic characters, and the fact that it doesn’t take itself too seriously and the reader understands the pattern and knows where it’s going but is enjoying themselves so much that they go along for the ride … and then find themselves in the most unusual ending. WELL worth scrummaging out of a second-hand book shop.
