Mystery Monday is Chris Alcock, an Illustrator and Comic creator from Birmingham in the UK. In 2016, he graduated from BA(Hons) Illustration at Plymouth University.
Mystery Monday’s work is a mixture of digital precision and traditional mark making. His use of screen tones and block colours evokes the classic comic book pages of the golden age, and his bold poster designs bring his comic book experience to the world of alternate posters. He has experience with many different forms of print making, such as silkscreen and risographs printing. His work is inspired by science-fiction stories and worlds, and by the bright colours and exciting visuals of 80s sci-fi films and cyber-punk anime movies. He also takes inspiration from the rock and roll scene, and from skateboarding and skateboard culture. He is constantly finding new inspiration from comic books and the narrative capabilities of sequential image narrative, and posts updates on his current comic book project ‘Jet Raider Run’ on his Instagram page, which can be accessed below.
