The artist's description:
Following the events of September 11th, my attention has been more tuned in to world affairs than ever before. The transparent lies of George W. Bush have shocked me into disbelief, and have driven me to seek the truth beyond the main-stream propaganda. I've since then followed alternative news sources such as Guerrilla news network and Democracy Now.Since then I've also discovered important writers such as Noam Chomsky and George Orwell. I've been searching for some time to find a way to help inform and wake people up. As an Arts student specialiesd in comic book artwork, I've found the best way to reach people is to revive Orwell's work in comic book format for a new generation to discover.
Frederic Guimont's Nineteen Eighty-Four website has some more, including previews of his new comic book (a work in progress) based on the George Orwell classic. Check it out.
