Last week we had to mention the wonderfulness that was DeadlyKnitshade’s amazing knitted version of Nel from Blank Slate’s Nelson (which, incidentally, went on to raise a load more money – £250 – at auction for the homelessness charity Shelter which the book is supporting – well done, all). This week more hand-made comics figure goodness as the esteemed FeltMistress works her magic to create Hilda from Luke Pearson‘s awesomely beautiful graphic novels:
Luke’s Hilda comics are published by the very fine Nobrow and our own Richard described the first one as “absolutely gorgeously delightful”. This really made me smile and it’s also pretty darn cool to see our beloved comics medium inspiring creators in other artistic mediums to create work like this. And look, she even has a teeny weeny copy of Hildafolk tucked under her arm! Fabbity fab fab.
And here, thanks to Michale Conde’s photography, you get to see Hilda in spectacular (in)action at Luke Pearson’s recent signing at GOSH:
