Lars the Last Viking is the first imprint from Sixty40 Press, the vanity publishing arm of Sydney animation & design company, Sixty40.
Lars was drawn in brush and ink on big sheets of Bristol Board. The fonts were all hand carved out of boulders by the inimitable David Hughes Lars was launched to an audience of drunken marauders in August 2011 at China Heights Gallery Sydney, with an exhibition of the original artwork and a rousing speech by Pat Grant.
I will be touring this book in 2012 to MoCCA, TCAF and other choice North American locations, alongside some of Australia’s most kick ass creators as part of the Caravan of Comics… get onboard.
I’m planning a follow up to this book but am not sure exactly when or how. If you’ve got any ideas, feedback or European publishing connections, give me a shout!
