YES, we are alive, and safly back at home in Copenhagen. We are already missing Nuuk.
I’m so sorry I haven’t have time to update the last part of my diary from Nuuk, there’s been many things going on again. Like there was Copenhagen Comics festival right after we came home. I was in a Nordic children comics exhibition there:
The exhibition was based on a new book called Dreambuddies – New Children’s Comics from the North, published by the Finnish Comics Society (you can buy the book from here). I’m in the book with the first Oonaphant comic:
Oonaphant is a series of children books/comics I’m making. I’m going to be focusing on them the next two months in a Cité residency in Paris (possible diary comics of that one will be updated too, so stay tuned).
I’m also working with a longer graphic novel (which was actually my main project in Nuuk) based on bear myths, specially the rituals of killing a bear. I’m actually doing it like “real comic artists” do comics: I’ve been doing research and writing scripts (what!?! OMG, right?). Here’s a tiny sketch to show that it’s for real:
I will try to make a pdf book out of the whole diary in Nuuk, if I have time. Let’s see. Till then, remember to fallow my tumblr.
I’m sorry if there’s some problems with the website or if there’s some pages missing etc… Sarjakuvablogit hasn’t been working that well again, and I haven’t had time to fight with it. I’m planning to gather all these comics into a pdf-book later this year, where every page will be in their right place for sure.
I made this in a Nordicomics workshop in Riga:
