ALEX MOORE

 ‘I try to create scenes with a sense of narrative and have far too much fun making sure the folk populating them each have their own distinct personalities. I especially dig the challenge that come with graphic novels- there’s so many ways to transition from moment to moment and working with just a pencil gives you a real freedom you just don’t get in other story telling mediums…’
