'Ideas,' he said, 'are not things. They are what you have instead of things. Instead of the good solid wood of this table. Instead of the water I know you crave'.
Luke Pearson has worked on the first interrogation that the prisoner experiences where he and his captor discuss the danger of ideas. Pearson has created a large scale expanded sequential illustration made up of a series of smaller drawings that are paced to reflect the movement of the prisoner between the interrogation room and his cell. Drawn speech moves between the inner dialogue of the prisoner and the conversation with his captor.
Pearson is a comic book artist and illustrator based in Nottingham. He wrote and illustrated the Hilda series of comics about the encounters of young girl living in a Scandinavian wilderness and the graphic novella Everything We Miss in 2011. The subjects in his stories range from surreal folk tales to very human stories of estrangement and heartbreak.
