Ed Harcourt Video with Tom Gauld


Fans of the comic anthology Kramer’s Ergot will instantly recognize the illustrations of Tom Gauld in the new Ed Harcourt video by Dirty UK. Tom is easily one of my favorite comic artists and seeing his work in motion was such a thrill that I immediately contacted Dirty UK to see how this process took place. Our conversation fell flat in the water. That’s why I’m unable to provide you with any back story or a higher res version or a direct link. Sorry, I tried.

It’s easy to see that each scene in the video is framed with attention to composition. Much the same way a piece of sequential art tells a story. You could pause this video at any moment and it would make an excellent composition.
