Illustration & Story-Telling
A graphic mini-novel inspired by the Tib Street Horn, previously a prominent sculpture in Manchester's Northern Quarter. The aim of the comic is to inspire an emotional attachment to the sculpture and encourage community engagement with its reinstallation, as well as celebrating Afflecks as its potential future home. The comic is aimed at visitors of the Northern Quarter and Afflecks Palace in particular, as well as the wider alternative community, with overarching themes of self-expression and celebrating individuality.
