Here's Johnny

I saw a wonderful film in Sheffield Doco festival a few weeks ago-i grew up reading 200AD and Judge Dread so to hear that the artist now has MS saddened me but his film inspired me.

Here's Johnny enters the surreal world of famous 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.
