I Don’t Believe in the Sun – Huw ‘Lem’ Davies

“I Don’t Believe in the Sun” is a short comic by Huw ‘Lem’ Davies that illustrate the song of the same name by Magnetic Fields.

I like how the artist has chosen to use the lyrics of the song as the only text in the comic but create a short story around that rather than adding extra detail with dialogue. It helps keep the story simple but still clear and not overcomplicated.

The way the colour scheme is the same throughout the comic creates a sense of monotony in the characters life as he is left alone, presumably carrying out the same tasks everyday.

The comic came from a project on ‘How Fucking Ronantic’ to illustrate the Magnetic Fields ’69 Love Songs’
