Arni's Epic Adventures title
art and story by Garen Ewing creative directors Russell Gower and Janet Guest additional text by Elyssa Campbell-Barr published by JCDecaux

I was commissioned by JCDecaux to create a 20-page wordless comic strip that would appear daily on their digital screens across the UK in the run-up to Christmas. An estimated 30-40 million commuters, shoppers and general public were able to follow the adventures of Arni, a little bird in search of his favourite tree in the UK's first public digitally-delivered comic!

Just when you think you've seen pretty much everything comics can do, something comes along like this from Garen Ewing. Paul Gravett
