The real Sunflower Superman has finally made it to comics! With the blessings of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Marc Verhaegen has completed his 48 page graphic novel called, Vincent Van Gogh: An Artists Struggle. The book is to be published by the EurEducation Foundation in both Dutch and English and is scheduled for release March 3rd.
The story seems to follow Vincent’s life and journey to become an artist as he struggles with his creativity, his family, and his madness. Jan Kragt, spokesperson for the EurEducation Foundation, says, “He (Van Gogh) worked in the face of oppression and finally achieved his goal by dint of hard work. That’s a lesson we’d like to pass on to young people. He experienced everything an artist can experience.” Van Gogh – a true role model of self-determination – for the kids today!
After the break is a motion graphics trailer for the graphic novel.
