The Art of Pho – Julian Hanshaw

11 01 2012

‘The Art of Pho‘ is an ambitious interactive motion comic project that utilises a myriad of drawing techniques, mixed media and interactivity. Based on the graphic novel by Julian Hanshaw and animated by Lois van Baarle, ‘The Art of Pho’ manages to create a compelling and uplifting interactive experience that compliments both static and moving image sequences. The ambient soundtrack also provides a dream-like atmosphere that suddenly shifts as the protagonist enters ‘the big city’.

‘The Art of Pho’s’ artistic merits are beautifully realised throughout the episodes on ‘Submarinechannel.com’ and the playfulness of narrative, visuals and interactivity provide an utterly compelling experience.

“The Art of Pho is a deliciously surreal interactive motion comic about a lovable creature named Little Blue and his friends. Through an extraordinary sequence of events, Little Blue ends up in Ho Chi Minh City where he learns to master the Art of making Pho (Phở) – Vietnam’s ubiquitus noodle soup. The adventures that ensue set him on a marvelous path of self-discovery.

Based on the graphic novel by Julian Hanshaw, The Art of Pho is a moving story-slash-travelogue about friendship, love and discovering your roots, set against the backdrop of Vietnam’s hustling and bustling capital.”
