Noel Franklin

In early 2013, Noel Franklin chose to apply her degree in printmaking from Western Washington University and her modest success in literary ventures towards making fine comics. Noel attributes her unique style – building dark and light shapes from densely knotted lines – to her experience with stone lithography. She is the creator of Gone Girl Comics; has had her graphic work published the United States, Canada, England, Norway and Serbia; and is a regular contributor to inktart.org.   She won the 2105 Emerald City Comicon “I Heart Comic Art” award and has received a 4Culture Art Projects grant in support of her first graphic novel.

11th Dimension Press—a relatively new independent publishing concern based in the Niagara Region of Ontario, Canada—is getting ready to release an anthology of short stories inspired by ‘Rock’ music.  The plan for the Rock Is Not Dead (#RIND) project is to build a multi-dimensional multi-media project that engages artists of all kinds, authors, graphic artists, and musicians.  The anthology will include a series of written-word short stories; a series of graphic-based, or comic, short stories; and a soundtrack including all the songs that inspired the short stories.
