Pedro Oliveira's insight:

Last time I read or spoke french, I was 15. So this book took me a long long time to read. I must say I loved every page of it. It´s a simple story with an emotional subtlety rarely found in this format. The art matches perfectly. Manuele Fior you got another fan!

Gary Panter's drawing tips

Gary Panter's drawing tips | Geeky Comics Corner | Scoop.it

"Get a book-size (or paperback-size)d sketchbook. Write your name and date on an early page and maybe think of a name for it — and if you want, write the book’s name there at the front. Make it into your little painful pal. The pain goes away slowly page by page. Fill it up and do another one. It can be hard to get started. Don’t flunk yourself before you get the ball rolling."

Obsolete (Nobrow 17x23): Mikkel Sommer: 9781907704109: Amazon.com: Books

Obsolete (Nobrow 17x23)

~ Mikkel Sommer (author) More about this product
Price: $11.00

.Without knowing, I've been a fan of Mikkel Sommer's work for a long time. Been following his blog since 2009 and only after reading "Obsolete" - shamely - connected the pieces. Then, Nobow's "A Graphic Cosmogony" came along! Hope to review it soon.

 

About Obsolete: Like Mikkel Sommer's art, it´s raw and poetic. The story is simple and dark, with lots of light and almost no dialogue.
This is a book with heavy paper and a humble binding. Everything fits perfectly
