Mome vol.18

cover by Nate Neal.

Finally, i got some of my work published in the U.S., i'm really happy about this, hope it will not be the last time btw...
More info and a video preview about the Mome project here.

From the Fantagraphics website:
"Every "period" in modern comics history has had its anthology that tapped into the zeitgeist and foreshadowed a new "generation" of cartoonists (Zap in the '60s; Arcade in the '70s; RAW and Weirdo in the '80s, etc.). For the new millennium, there is Mome. This quarterly book will spotlight a regular cast of a dozen of today's most exciting cartoonists. Mome features the same collective of artists every issue, allowing the artists and audience to grow together and build an ongoing identity that is highly unusual for the world of contemporary comics."

"If the world of alt-comics feels appealing but intimidatingly vast (what doesn’t these days), Mome is the perfect place to start. ... An anthology is only as good as the sensibilities of those who compile it, of course, so it’s worth noting that a subscription of Mome equals four issues per year of work culled from the depths by an outfit that not only has keen vision in such matters, but also a stake in finding the very best. What’s not to trust?"

Suburban Wasteland

Flash back... I stumbled across this old 2005 painting while getting some film developed, and it brought me back a lot of memories, many things did happen in the last five years, and since 2007 and the recent capitalist crisis, be sure our world will never be the same again.
This painting was some sort of commission for a strange project called the "Reverse Cinema", where six different artists were doing a fake cinema poster, then, some people will imagine a scenario and shoot a short film out of it. Ironically, seem that i had been the loser of the bunch, nobody did a short film out of my poster, the painting wasn't hung properly and fell on the street, it was stored somewhere, supposed to be sold and then disappeared forever. These poor quality photos are the only remaining trace of that painting.
Fun fact is that was painted in September 2005, one month before the french ghetto riots erupted...

A short glimpse of the painting appear at 1'21''and 2'17''shot during the opening night.
