Welcome to the archive of the John Barleycorn blog, produced by Howard Gayton and Rex Van Ryn during the process of creating their graphic novel John Barleycorn Must Die. As part of that process, you'll find discussions of magic, of creativity, and 'Around the Table' discussions with a range of internationally known artists, writers and film makers. The graphic novel was printed in a limited edition, so if you managed to get one, good for you! Although this project is over now, we're leaving this blog online as an archive and as a snap shot in time.

ad referendum


H - This week we dive into the mundus for the first time. It's a strange place, so keep your wits about you.

R - Hold onto your hats...

H - Yes, quite, Rex.

R - ...tie your boots up tight, clip on your harness, pull up your socks, put on your cricket box, adjust your goggles, tighten your belts, feed your dogs, tether your camels, lead your horse to water, say your prayers, buy your shopping, leave a note for the milkman...

H - Rex!

R - Yes.

H - Shut up!
