Jon McNaught is a British cartoonist and Illustrator living in
He publishes comic books with Nobrow press.
"Birchfield Close is comics as a theme, a mood, poetry perhaps.
Evoking so much, saying little on the surface, yet what the reader
takes away is a profound sense of wonder. Beautiful."
"I have rarely come across a new cartoonist who so quickly leapt
to the top of my favorites list as did the work of Jon McNaught.
Quiet, subtle, deeply felt. Gorgeously designed. Quintessentially
British. A rare joy. Simply put - Jon McNaught is sublime."
--Seth, Author of George Sprott 1894-1975 and It's A Good Life If You Don't Weaken "McNaught's work [...] is its own aesthetic experience: Minimal, gentle, tranquil, but also evocative and complex."
--Biblioklept "It is a quiet work filled with noises, a Mona Lisa on a postage stamp, an epic in sonnet form, and a study in time captured in minutes and seconds. [...] Have you ever observed with inner stillness the progress a hot-air balloon across the sky, flocks of birds in flight gathering new members as it passes neighborhood yards, or the slow movement of shadow across the grass as the sun went down? All of these seemingly mundane events are made sublime in their depiction in Birchfield Close. [...] Birchfield Close is about paying attention to the world around us by looking and listening. It's a compelling book."
