Here’s Johnny enters the surreal world of renowned graphic artist Johnny Hicklenton, who is battling against Multiple Sclerosis. Living in an increasing state of immobility and frustration, Johnny escapes the confines of his frontroom through his artwork.Through the expression of his brilliant and sometimes troubled imagination we learn about the disease that he cannot escape from.

Launched at the Science Museum on January 30th 2008, and premiering at South by South West film festival in March 2008, Here's Johnny went on to win two prestigious Grierson Awards in November 2008. Winning both the 'Best Arts Documentary' and 'Best Newcomer' awards, Here's Johnny is the first film ever to win two awards in the Griersons' 36 year history.

I've been really looking forward to this, but especially considering that it's about someone with a disability, it's really shitty that, according to the Radio Times, it's not going to have subtitles.  >:(

It clashes with Mad Men! And the joys of digital  & VHS mean I can't record one and watch the other at the same time.What the hell am I going to do?!

Now I could be wrong, but it's likely to be coming to a torrent near you very shortly...

Looking forward to this. I've been very critical of his artwork during the Satanus run and even went so far as writing to Tharg and making some pretty childish comments. The response though really drove home to me that the people who work on the stuff we read are people and have worked hard as hell regardless of whether I liked it or not, and I'm hopefully a lot more constructive with my feedback these days! Have since picked up the Nemesis books and have actually really warmed to his stuff, so looking forward to learning more about the guy.

You can watch it on 4 on demand, http://www.channel4.com/video/brandless ... res-johnny

He's done commissions in the past, but it's a lot of work, he's not saying he'll never do them again, but not openly taking them.

For some of his artwork check out www.heresjohnnyfilm.com on the buy now section, there's some brill pieces and all will be personally signed by the man himself. There limited edition only 100 being made, each will be numbered and there's 5 different ones to choose from.

Enjoy!!
