Review: Mörf by Billy McKay and various artists

MorfMorf art Morf art Morf art Morf art

Mörf https://buff.ly/2m2ybeT is a 28-page, full color, digest size, exquisite corpse style continuous story illustrated by 25 artists. Created, written, and edited by Billy McKay.

This creative comic is the brainchild of Billy McKay. Billy’s vision was to bring 25 artists together and share a single image of his character Mörf with them, one artist at a time. The first artist was to draw their version of the character, changing as the liked, based only on a single image provided to them by Billy. The second artist then received the first artist’s drawing and repeated the process, and the third artist received the second’s and so on, and so on until all 25 artists had drawn and changed Mörf. After all the drawings were done Billy collected them, colored them, and wrote a continuous poetic story that stretched across all versions of Mörf and tied each image into the next! What an impressive undertaking, and what a visually stunning and delightful book!

The talented artists featured in Mörf are: Billy McKay, Marc Palm, Max Clotfelter, Jeff Heidel, Dale Martin, Ryan Holgersen, Micah Liesenfeld, Chad Woody, Henry Knoth, Warren Elliott (that’s me!), Jimbo Easter, Nate McDonough, Andrew Goldfarb, Adam Yeater, Jesse Thomas, O’Ryan McGowan, Joseph Tenney, Pam Bliss, Suzanne Baumann, Carrie McNinch, Jason Young, Bruce Orr, Bob Corby, Tom Cherry, and Bob Vojtko!
