The mothman a tragic dysfunctional hero that would save you if he could only save himself …
Artist Tony Knox developed the pseudo hero Mothman in 2004, inspired by comic books and a fascination of moths this hero was born, This nomadic being appears though various locations through out the world creating a sense of Mystery where did he come from, Why did he appear like a apparition at Pyramids in Egypt, then the streets of Köln to the abandoned Garden festival site in Liverpool to the centre stage of a wrestling ring and is Harry Hill the mothman?
One of the factors that has inspires Knox art is the desire to tell a story to finally give a insight into who the character is and show it’s origins. An important factor to the success of this collaboration was giving a lose narrative, Wirral based Katie Hanratty illustrations brought a freshness by stamping her own style on her pages, Anna McDade a multimedia artist set the scenario where mothman was sitting on the angle of the north only to be accidentally joined by a farther for justice planned protest.
