Friday Props this week to artist and author Martin Panchaud for his work portraying Star Wars: A New Hope as an infographic as well as his work as founder of Creative Quest where he aspires to help artists find financing for their work.
We love when we stumble across something great only to find that it leads to more great. Such was the case with Martin Panchaud. Initially the searcho-bots and algo-tubes of the interwebs knew that I would be a sucker for something Star Wars and it delivered.
Martin Panchaud was born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1982 and resides in Zurich today. According to his bio his particular style is influenced by his dyslexia. One thing that is certain is that it has worked for him - and for us, luckily! His 123 meter long work called SWANH.NET is an illustrated adaptation of the entire film. It is so fun, and we urge you to at minimum find your favorite scenes. I love how the dialog is captured and characters presented in infogrpahic style.
Panchaud's accomplishments go beyond a singular piece, of course. But alongside his own artistic endeavors he also works to help provide other artists with tools, persepctives, ideas on being able to finance their works. He founded Creative Quest as means to mentor others on the difficult task of raising funds for artistic endeavors. This alone is Props-worthy.
