I’m here in Bretagne for the annual Quai Des Bulles comics festival, along with a small delegation of Danish cartoonists. Since I don’t speak French or really know any locals, most of the time has been spent hanging out with Danes I don’t get to see a lot back in Copenhagen.
I recorded a podcast from the festival for the Comics for Beginners site. Check it out here.
And for the pictures to go along with the sound, well…
|Saint Malo is a beautiful medieval city and the weather has been awesome for October.|
|Upon arrival I got these great plastic coins that you can buy drinks with. Awesome VIP style.|
|Not all the French are friendly.|
|Saint Malo is an old pirate town. It runs as a theme in some of the exhibitions.|
|One day I want a sketchbook out with my name on it too!|
|The Danes. In this picture, Rene Birkholm, Sussi Bech and Frank Madsen.|
|Pirate tattoo, anyone?|
|The French artists take their time with signing, giving each fan an elaborate sketch.|
|Live sketching in the main building, with a view of the chatau outside.|
|Quite a few more people at the festival on Saturday, standing in line for sketches.|
|An elobarate show for the kids, complete with mad scientists and giant artist robot.|
|The VIP lounge is in an old boat docked next to the festival building.|
|Tons of restaurants are along the old city wall. St Malo is a great place for food and drinks.|
