Lilli Carré Interview - Women Write About Comics

Lilli Carré Interview - Women Write About Comics | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it

  Lilli Carré is one of a kind. Her style is all her own; I’ve never seen anything else like it. The stories she weaves and the images she creates have a trademark air of melancholy, regardless of genre...Her style is also heavy on subtlety and nuance. At no point is the message spoon-fed to the audience. You must read it, let the images and the story sink in, and then figure out what it means to you.

When I got my hands on Lilli Carré‘s newest collection of short stories Heads or Tails, what immediately caught my eye was the variety of styles the writer/artist attempted in her tales. During our recent interview about the collection, I focused some of my questions on the choices she made in terms of the colors, lettering and other story elements. I also learned about Carré’s thought process when approaching a comic tale versus one of her animation projects. The roots to these stories run deep in Carré’s life, and as she notes, the book has an overall theme of ”ambivalence, chance, and flip-sides.”

Pinning down Chicago artist Lilli Carre

Pinning down Chicago artist Lilli Carre | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it
Lille Carre is 29, petite, moon-faced and unassuming. She curls forward as she speaks. On a quiet morning in her Noble Square apartment, she speaks softly and gives off an air of frailty. It's not hard to picture her stepping out of one of her own creations. She is an illustrator, an animator and a cartoonist, and her characters are similarly ethereal and angular and look exhausted. They appear to be moments away from floating off into space. They are like her work: hard to pin down.
