Sheffield-based illustrator Dave Hill understands the importance of newsprint in a balanced breakfast – nothing goes better with eggs and toast than the funny pages.
His wonderful digital tabloid comic, Everything for Breakfast, follows a pair of voracious explorers, making their way across the globe one meal at a time.
Dave's bright and bold illustrations look so great in newsprint that we picked his comic as our Newspaper of the Month.
"Everything for Breakfast is the result of my final university project, where I wanted to create something for children to interact with, to read through, and to implicitly receive the message of the importance of acceptance and tolerance amongst different cultures.
I see the comic being read by kids in schools during the morning breakfast routine, or at break time, so I wanted the comic to be a larger format than the usual issued comic of today. I saw that our University’s graduation brochure was being printed through Newspaper Club and I’d been aware of the company for a while, so this was the perfect excuse to see what my work looks like as a newspaper.
The results are great, and I didn’t expect them to be so personal with the project! And now I know how to make Issue 2 even better."
