John Patrick Reynolds

A screen Print reworked from the series of Asterix comic books; printed on hand made Somerset paper and issued in a limited edition. Published in London 2018.
John Reynolds was the first artist to receive permission from the publishers to reproduce iconic images from the comics of D. C. Thomson. He has a passion for Asterix but also for British comic art; a genre he claims has been long overlooked by the art market. Anita O'Brien, curator of the Cartoon Trust in Bloomsbury says: "Each of the drawings in these strips has taken an enormous amount of work. I don't think the public have ever fully appreciated the illustrating talent that went into many of these early comics."£495
