Sketches of Sound 8: Darko Macan

This is the eighth occurrence of a little Disquiet.com project called “Sketches of Sound”: inviting illustrators to sketch something sound-related. I post the drawing as the background of my Twitter account, twitter.com/disquiet, and then share a bit of information about the illustrator back on Disquiet.com. Call it “curating Twitter.”

The above drawing was done for me for this project by Darko Macan, the talented Croatian comics author/artist. Like perhaps a lot of English-language comics readers, I first came upon Macan’s name when he scripted a two-issue sequence of Hellblazer for DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint, after Warren Ellis left the series, about a decade ago. “I’ve been working in comics for over 20 years,” Macan wrote, when asked for a brief bio to accompany his illustration, “but the closest I came to music was when I wrote a novel about a teenage rock-critic (in Croatian, as is my blog www.darkomacan.com).”

The previous “Sketches of Sound” contributors were, in alphabetical order, Brian Biggs, Warren Craghead III, Dylan Horrocks, Megan Kelso, Minty Lewis, Hannes Pasqualini, and Thorsten Sideb0ard.
