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.

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.

If I can, I will try to give a tip or two, some insights into what goes on at these places or maybe even discuss something that relates to other things, like […]

On the move: ANGOULÊME DAY 2

Yesterday I met with a few editors and forced my book upon them. Incidentally that’s also the plan for today. Show up, look around, be nice, leave my book, get out. When publishers are at events like this, their minds are of course preoccupied with a million other things than looking at a stranger’s comic book. […]
