On the move: NEW DELHI

My wife Line and I were invited to the World Book Fair by the Danish Embassy in New Delhi and both had a ton of programmed events. I taught three comic courses, gave a talk on creative freelancing and took part in a panel discussion on International book marketing and my wife read aloud from […]

On the move: COMICS FESTIVAL MUNICH

Just got back from 5 days at a comics festival in Munich. I always forget how invigorating it is for me to participate in these things and even though this was a very small venue spread over more days than Danish cons, there was a steady stream of people coming through. It was great to […]

On the move: QUAI DES BULLES – SAINT MALO

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 […]

On the move: HOTEL PARKING

On the move: HOTEL PARKING

“Hotel Parking”? “Oui, Monsieur”. Didn’t sound right, I had them repeat several times, when I finally made it to the check-in desk after more than an hour. That’s the part I hate about travelling: standing in line. Especially when that woman from Aalborg plowed right in front of me, with her seven passports and special […]

On the move: AU REVOIR, SAINT MALO

On the move: AU REVOIR, SAINT MALO

The Quai Des Bulles festival is over. What came out of it, only time will tell. But I sold most of the books I brought with me, and was able to present my work to a few publishers and make some new friends. And I got some crucial work on the second draft of my […]

On the move: SEAN PHILLIPS!

On the move: SEAN PHILLIPS!

One of the best things for me to see here at the Quai Des Bulles festival in Saint Malo, is the extensive Sean Phillips exhibit. Originals and cover paintings from Criminal, Fatale and other art. The talented and productive Brit has been wrapped in an all American setup resembling a film noir movie set. I […]

On the move: QAUI DES BULLES IN PICTURES

On the move: QAUI DES BULLES IN PICTURES

Time for a little picture post from the festival here in Saint Malo. Enjoy! Took a stroll along the city wall this morning. Wind almost blew me off the cliff. Saint Malo is a beautiful medieval city. View from the press lounge. Les Danois! Most of them are old studio mates. The crowded floors of […]

On the move: QUAI DES BULLES

On the move: QUAI DES BULLES

Things are starting out good here in Bretagne. First, there was the announced train strike. How is that good? Well, it was on Thursday. I flew in Friday. So while I missed out on the beginning of the festival, I was able to get here using my non-refundable train tickets instead of having to rent […]

On the move: SAINT MALO

On the move: SAINT MALO

Just arrived in Saint Malo for the annual comics festival Quai de Bulles. Haven’t met up with anyone yet, but there is a substantial Danish cartoonist group here, got a table and everything. I think. I like travelling alone. Gives me time to read, write, think. I brought my script and made the most of […]
