"The Tourist" is about an American GI that goes AWOL in search of his future, and finds himself in a remote Scottish fishing village while pursued by his past. A dangerous game of cat/mouse threatens himself, his dreams, and those he's come to care for.
His work doesn't pull any punches, and speaks with a voice from a gut level viewpointed reality.
Brian, and I have been friends for a long time since meeting at a comic book show years ago as art students.
He's continued to create with a sense of passion, and contributed a brilliant voice in the independant publishing artform.
The Tourist is a remarkably different from some of his other works. Sorta' a mix of Demo, Couriers, and recent works such as DMZ...yet still unique. A study of people like much of his work is, but expanding his diversity still again.
