I’ve been a big fan of David Small’s books for many years. The last few weeks I have contemplated doing a graphic novel for a story I’ve been writing, and I discovered this book by David. As always, his work is inspiring me to push myself to bigger heights. Home After Dark is a massive work, a difficult story to tell, and told brilliantly in black and white, cinamatic visuals, sparce at times, other times with beautiful wide-screen imagery.
My schedule, working full-time in animation, as well as teaching at ArtCenter in Pasadena, does not allow much free time, so this is a big undertaking. But David Small’s work is so inspiring that I want to see what I can do in this medium.
