Submarine re-created Julian Hanshaw’s graphic novel The Art of Pho for the web, adding the dimensions of sound, music, animation and poetic interactivity to Hanshaw’s exquisitely drawn artwork. The motion comic The Art of Pho features 8 episodes.
The Art of Pho is a moving and surreal story about a loveable creature named Little Blue and his friends. An extraordinary sequence of events brings Little Blue to Vietnam’s bustling capital Ho Chi Minh City, a.k.a. Saigon, where he learns to master the Art of making Pho (Pho) – Vietnam’s ubiquitous national noodle dish. The adventures that ensue set him on a marvellous path of self-discovery. The Art of Pho is a story about friendship, love and discovering your roots. This brand-new production was made under the creative supervision of Julian Hanshaw and spearheaded by animation director Lois van Baarle.
