The art of Pho


The Art of Pho – motion comic trailer from Submarine Channel on Vimeo.


The Art of Pho is a deliciously surreal interactive motion comic about a lovable creature named Little Blue and his friends. Through an extraordinary sequence of events, Little Blue ends up in Ho Chi Minh City where he learns to master the Art of making Pho (Phở) – Vietnam’s ubiquitus noodle soup. The adventures that ensue set him on a marvelous path of self-discovery. Based on the graphic novel by Julian Hanshaw, The Art of Pho is a moving story-slash-travelogue about friendship, love and discovering your roots, set against the backdrop of Vietnam’s hustling and bustling capital.

With animation director Lois van Baarle, Submarine Channel re-created The Art of Pho for the web, adding the dimensions of music, voice acting, hand-drawn animation and interactivity to Hanshaw’s exquisitely drawn artwork. The amazing soundtrack was done by Pastelle Music and will be made available as MP3’s asap.

The graphic novel The Art of Pho was first published by Random House and is available via
