There are so many great stories that unfold quietly and cross the paths of our daily lives, stories not written but lived and living still… people’s stories.
At the beginning of the year, I was invited to join a collective of African comic artists (l’Afrique Dessinée) and participate in putting a book together: "Thembi et Jetje, des tisseuses de l’arc en ciel”. Each artist was assigned to illustrate a chapter of the story which spans two decades (10 chapters all in all), the book will be published in France by l’Harmattan later this month!
This is Thembi, a Ndebele woman...
And Jetje, an Afrikaans girl.
I loved working with the other guys and gals, some of which were friends that I hadn’t seen since Angouleme 2006!
And as a special treat, you can also take a peek at the cover by Adjim :)
One of my dearest models died recently.
Gimli (aka the Gimp aka Gimme aka Gimpster) was a cat of great standing and sweet, sweet disposition. A lion’s mane enveloping the most delicate personality, a real sweet-heart...
