Stunningly drawn graphic novel about art and beauty Ironically a bit like some artwork not sure I uite got it but I enjoyed spending time looking at its beautiful illustrations none the less A ew weeks ago I acuired a graphic novel being published by Jonathan Cape by a young Belgian artist named Ben Gijsemans It s unintentional but apt that this novel is set in Brussels which was so violently attacked a 101 Ways to Bug Your Parents few days ago It s also unintentional but apt that I should have read it after reviewing Olivia Laing s new book The Lonely City Hubertunctions as a case study Pinstripes and Penance for the phenomenon that Laing describes isolation in an urban environment a lonely humaninding solace in art but unable to connect to another human even one as lonely as he isRead the rest here Reading Hubert is like observing a man observing things In that the experience Wicked, Sinful Nights (Raised to be Bladesmen, feels like being inront of a painting rather than reading a bookstory Which is pretty cool because the main theme in the book is also arts Hubert stays Ali Pashë Tepelena for the most part inront of a painting And we kinda do the same thing simultaneously 3 stars because the artwork is stunning The story Hubert een introverte man van een middelbare leeftijd woont in Brussel maar kan er moeilijk aarde.

I thought it was lovely His drawings washed out but somehow lush too are so tender and telling Little Fiery One from the doleful curve of Hubert s back to the workaday treads of the stairs up and up they go in his apartment building The interiors make you think of Larkin s poem Home Is So Sad It stays as it was leftShaped to the comfort of the last to goAs if to win them back Hubert s tinylat is his shell protecting him The Sacred King from the world But it s also a mark of a certain kind ofailure what the poet called a joyous shot at how things ought to be Long Milking the Dogs, Part 1 fallen wide These walls can t talk but they seem to judge him all the same Rachel Cooke s reviewor the Guardian says than I can say A delicate and heartbroken book absolutely lovely Beautiful art work simple and intimate story A Graphic novel about a guy who is a lonely painter He is awkward and has trouble talking to other people He loves going to Museums There he takes pictures and then pain Beautifully composed little story Sepia tones and infinitesimal differences between many of the panels draw the eye orward in a way that gives an overall impression of a Zoetrope bound into a book.
