Peterson, a moderately successful artist, is finally given a chance to shine at the Beerpoele biennial festival. However, upon arrving in the village, he realises the festival is a little more amateur and its organisers a little more laid-back than he had expected. Still hoping for his fifteen minutes of fame, Peterson takes matters into his own hands and tries to rally the other participants with a grandiose project. It will not go to plan. The Making Of is a graphic novel like no other. It explodes from the confines of the page with the unique and unmistakable style that has made Brecht Evens an international sensation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An outstandingly beautiful art object. Executed in gorgeous, swirling watercolours." * Dazed and Confused *
"The soft, lush watercolour art is 10 shades of gorgeous." -- Teddy Jamieson * Herald *
"Evens is the finest ambassador for Belgian illustration since Herge, and his book, so original and so gorgeous-looking, comes with the warm-hearted message that, however silly and pompous this world can sometimes be, in the end, art only ever brings people together... Turning the pages, you never know what you'll find next: a scene from a children's fairytale, lush and magical; a comic strip, busy and droll; or a nightmare straight out of the lost sketchbook of Edvard Munch." -- Rachel Cooke * Observer *
"Continues in the splendidly evocative style of Evens's debut, The Wrong Place, its watercolours covering the page in a vibrant blur that is brilliantly accessible yet very different...a comic whose rich, surreal artwork is a joy to behold." -- James Smart * Guardian *
"Brecht Evens is an artist of an amazing kind. This is an astoundingly beautiful book, the pages are vibrant with juicy watercolour illustrations, frequently spilling outside of the graphic novel's traditional panel format. The colour and the freeflowing nature of the drawings inspire a feeling of happiness." * Emerald Street *

“The Making of”

The artwork in this is amazing and I must be honest most of the three star rating is for that rather than the story, which I found a little flat and not one that I could particularly lose myself in (or even really... More
