Far across the Atlantic Ocean lies the windswept shore of Pebble Island, a secluded place where time goes slowly, and the seasons all happen at once,
where rocks on the beach are perfectly round, and TV broadcasts are limited and late.
Drawing from memories of a childhood home in the Falklands, Jon McNaught uses wordless comic strips and intricate prints to form a playful study of isolation and adventure; Children gather in sprawling peat bogs where ruined military vehicles become secret bases, a fisherman settles down in his cluttered cabin to watch the Saturday night movie, and sheep thoughtfully wander the hills, grazing in the billowing grass.
Barely six months from the release of his first book with Nobrow Press ‘ Birchfield Close’, McNaught undertakes a 38-page graphic novel where he revisits his youth in the Falkland Islands. In his trademark silent storytelling style he covers two separate narratives, ‘Pebble Island’ and ‘Broadcast’, both set in these stark and unforgiving surroundings that nonetheless exude an air of tranquility and respite.
