Graphic success for Warwick alum

Warwick alumnus Owen Jollands (MPhys 2000-04) has seen his career take some interesting turns since graduation. After leaving Warwick in 2004 he spent some time working in television before going on to work for a leading investment bank. However, he felt this wasn't right for him and started looking around for a new challenge. He soon came across The Masterclass which is run by comic book veteran Huw-J.

Since 2007 Owen has been learning how to become a graphic novel artist from Huw-J through the Masterclass and later as a graduate working on other projects. This has now culminated in the publication of his first graphic novel The Young Sherlock Holmes Adventures - Head of the Hydra which is illustrated by JL Straw and coloured and lettered by Owen.

The book will come out in December 2010 and is a 100 page graphic novel following a young Sherlock in a re-imagined steam punk Victorian London. Featuring a cast of colourful characters and striking artwork, the book is suitable for all ages.
