Work produces work - Gareth A Hopkins' unending process

Work produces work - Gareth A Hopkins' unending process

Gareth A Hopkins started his comics career by making an abstract reworking of his favorite 2000 A.D. comic book. Since then, he has returned to his own work time and time again — published work, misprints and discarded art — to use it as the foundation for new uncomics work. Your host Allan Haverholm talks to Gareth about comics, musical inspiration, personal grief and the paranormal.

Gareth A Hopkins is a featured artist in the Uncomics anthology, out now!
