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.

John Barleycorn awakes in the mundus....

H - Thanks for your responses last week, and as a result we have decided that we will be posting some old and pointless scenes in the future.

R - And, Howard, we will be posting new scenes....

H - ...but without dialogue balloons, Rex.

R - Indeed.

H - And after last week's post with much talking and little art, we thought we'd reverse that for this week's post, and have little talking....

R - ...and lots of art!
