14th Lyon BD Festival poster by Luke McGarry

This Tintin-style poster to promote the 14th Lyon BD Festival is by “Sad Chewie” artist Luke McGarry is great fun – how many characters slipped into the image  can you recognise?

(Oh, and before any wag asks given this week’s events, yes parody is allowed under the new EU Copyright Directive legislation, which will be implemented in two years time).

Designer, 2D Animator and Illustrator Luke created it in the run up to the inaugural NCSFest in Huntington Beach, California, delivered in partnership with Lyon BD and the Kendal-based Lakes International Comic Art Festival in October. (He’s also created promotional art for NCSFest, too).
