The Metaning is an art project by Matt Godden – a 22 page (including covers) gallery wall scale graphic novel, with pages approximately 113x82cm in size.
To the best of our knowledge, having spoken with creators, publishers and academics specialising in Australian comics, this is the first work of this nature created in Australia, though we’re happy to hear of preceeding works, especially anyone interested in group exhibiting large format works like this.
The work was created as a response to the difficulty faced when trying to come up with a project acceptable to the drawing department of a traditional art school.
Narratively, The Metaning is an autobiographical journey through the events and decisions that lead to the creation of the work itself.
This book is published in DRM-Free Fixed-Layout EPUB format.
