Brendan Munroe: Particle Collisions

Work / Art

Solar systems and a healthy dose of affection, Brendan Munroe’s work never fails to please

Brendan Munroe once sent us a comic book he made called Islands and to this day there is a shared opinion in the studio that it is one of the most beautiful things we have ever received. A self-professed artist rather than illustrator, Brendan’s work is a humble mixture of tenderness and scientific curiosity, whisking us briefly out of the norm and into a world where couples clutch at each other in the sea and the Large Hadron Collider is broken down to a series of aesthetically pleasing marks. Most recently, Brendan has contributed a piece of work to accompany Jennifer Egan’s tweeted novel, which you can see here on The New Yorker.
