George Jurard is a versatile artist working in an indie spare-line style, often with soft, muted pastels and grey-tones in color choice. He’s currently working on a creator-owned web series, BEACON LIGHTS, for TRIP CITY, a series of “loosely interlocking stories that take place over the course of 200 years”. As you can tell, he’s got a contemplative imagination and his series shows a strong grasp of character on a large temporal canvas and a concern for the seemingly insignificant elements of the human experience.GeorgeJurardCover BEACON LIGHTS is about the way in which we always seem to pursue “something in the distance” in our lives and argues for the reality of the truism that “each action has an opposite reaction” well beyond the realm of physics. It’s thought provoking stuff, and in a style that stays with you in its own haunting way. Jurard is an artist to look out for as he ventures further into unknown territory in his own work and pushes his style into auteur-like storytelling. He’s also a founding member of the collective Studio YOLO.


Hannah Means-Shannon writes and blogs about comics for TRIP CITY and and is currently working on books about Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore for Sequart. She is @hannahmenzies on Twitter and hannahmenziesblog on WordPress.
