Dave McKean, illustrator of many books with Neil Gaiman, Ray Bradbury, John Cale, Heston Blumenthal, Grant Morrison, and occasional artist,photographer, director, musician, writer, and singer of forgotten songs, talks about two intense years spent exploring both sides of the theological divide. He illustrated and collaborated with evolutionary biologist and Darwin's Rottweiler Richard Dawkins on the New York Times bestseller The Magic of Reality-an introduction to skeptical thinking and science for young readers and old. McKean then directed, edited, designed, and scored a film adaptation of Michael Sheen's extraordinary live three-day Passion of Port Talbot-a contemporary retelling of the Easter story in locations throughout a town in Wales, in front of an audience of over 20,000 people. And Eric? Eric is one of the smaller stars of Dave's new film Luna. Still in postproduction but inching closer to a 2013 release, it stars Stephanie Leonidas (from MirrorMask and Syfy's new Defiance), as well as Michael Maloney (In the Bleak Midwinter, Babel), Ben Daniels (Merlin, Doom), and Dervla Kirwan (Dr. Who, Ondine).
