Gareth Gaudin has teamed up with famed poet Shane Koyczan and illustrated 12 of his latest poems into a graphic novel called Silence Is A Song I Know All The Words To. Taking on internet trolls, delivering love letters, reminiscing about old friends and spending time in late night diners are just some of the many topics discussed at length. The art is gorgeous and the words are divine. Dales Gallery will be featuring more than 130 pieces of original art by Gareth from May 28 through June 30.
