Studio Profile: Hope Street Studios

Posted by on August 16th, 2010 at 12:01 AM

Earlier this year, I looked at the wealth of interesting small-press publications that were emerging from Scotland.  It became apparent that the majority of the work was coming from one studio — Hope Street Studios in Glasgow — where professional creators like Jamie Grant, Frank Quitely, Gary Erskine and Dominic Regan had formed a creative nexus with emerging independent artists and writers.

When the opportunity arose, I decided to visit the studio and speak to the various creators associated with it about the community that Hope Street has fostered as well as their influences, aspirations and the uniquely bleak Scottish sense of humor.

More information on the creators and publications featured can be found at the following locations:

Dominic Regan: Gamma Head
John Miller: Evil Wee Comics
Graham Murdoch: Lambiek profile
Iain Laurie: Powwkipsie and Black Cape
Craig Collins: Roachwell
Wasted, Northern Lightz and Nexion: Bad Press Ltd.
