Christian Slade, a former Disney animator and now freelance illustrator, has produced an illustrated woodland fantasy about a young girl Ivy, her dog Sprout and their adventures in Korgi Hollow for US comic book company Top Shelf. The Korgi graphic novel will be released by the company in April and will also feature in Owly and Korgi, a one-off title combining Andy Runton’s Owly character with Slade’s Korgi.
The visual identity — which includes a new golden logo — (almost) leaves out its famous kangeroo as Australia looks to tell other stories.
The funding is in partnership with UKRI, and will award up to £150,000 to projects which “trial ways to implement refill infrastructure”.
There is a new digital format for the marketing and branding conference as well as an expanded schedule, with over 80 sessions.
The identity for Shivering Mountain takes inspiration from the geological and botanical influences on the area, and introduces the world to the concept of “ginology”.
