This is GREAT! 2006 Brighton graduate Sarah Lippett has just finished her very first book, a touching portrait of her grandfather, Stanley Burndred. Rather than merely making a printed zine or graphic novel, Sarah has invested in creating a truly charming website through which you can navigate yourself around the details of Stan’s very interesting life. Old black and white photos and stories from the days of yore are 100% my bag, so this kind of thing is a total melt-fest for us nostalgic types – particularly in the section of the site that shows off Stan’s curiously brilliant artwork. I don’t know about you, but if my talented granddaughter makes a brilliant comic and rather epic project inspired by my boring old life, I’ll die a happy old lady indeed. Check out the rest of Sarah’s work over here on Crayonlegs.
