Pop Sandbox’s graphic novel KENK named one of Quill & Quire’s books of the year

My friend—and longtime source of inspiration—Alex Jansen launched his multimedia production and publishing shingle Pop Sandbox not too long ago, and he’s already got the company on the map with his journalistic comic book, KENK: A Graphic Portrait. The publication was just named one of Quill & Quire’s 2010 non-fiction books of the year. KENK is about Igor Kenk, “the world’s most prolific bicycle thief,” and you can learn more by clicking here.

I had the pleasure up meeting up with Alex again in October when he was in town for the Ottawa International Writing and Animation Festivals. Most of the KENK team came together to talk about the process behind the book and their plans to adapt it into an animated short film. Their work so far has been extremely innovative and creative, and promises to continue in that vein.

Check out Pop Sandbox and keep an eye on Alex. He’s got a lot more projects coming down the pipe, and I’m hoping to team up with him some day soon through one medium or another, be it print, film or something in between. Congratulations, Alex! Very well deserved.
