Garen Ewing - Illustrator

About the Illustrator

Garen's love of drawing and writing goes back to when he was very young, and had to spend a lot of time in hospital, so his mum supplied him with plenty of comics to read, and pencils and blank paper to draw with, and he's been making comics ever since! Other jobs have included working at a mushroom farm (he's a qualified fork-lift truck driver), an airport hotel, a computer software company and doing loads and loads of illustrations for various books and magazines. He's been the editor of a local entertainments guide (5D) and a comic strip anthology (Cosmorama). He's adapted Shakespeare's The Tempest into a comic and is the writer and artist behind The Rainbow Orchid. He's an expert on the Second Anglo-Afghan War of 1878-1880, he's half Scottish, one-sixteenth Romany Gypsy and plays bass guitar and does karate (though not at the same time).

Adventures of Julius Chancer: The Rainbow Orchid

Author: Garen Ewing Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/08/2009

Winner of the Young People's Comic Award at the 2013 British Comic Awards The most gripping new comic book series since Tintin. Follow our hero, Julius Chancer, as he embarks on a hazardous quest for the rainbow orchid - a mythical flower last mentioned by the ancient Greek philosopher, Theophrastus, and steeped in legend. His epic journey takes him from 1920s Britain to the Indian subcontinent and its mysterious lost valleys. Garen Ewing's stunning graphic novel series blends classic storytelling and historical drama with cinematic artwork in the same vein as the great Herge. An Adventure series not to be missed. Praise for The Rainbow Orchid: 'I couldn't like it more if I tried ...beautifully done ...one of the most satisfying comics around' - The Observer Graphic Novel of the Month 'A British Tintin ...readers will be well entertained' - The Independent 'The storyline is intricate and engrossing ...Joyous' - The Financial Times
