Angoulême International Comics Festival

Last week I went to Angoulême with 22 Dutch comic artists! (Joost Swarte, Hanco Kolk, Henk Kuipers, Barbara Stok and many more). It was a very great week. We made posters about the French actuality, then the posters were screenprinted live for public. The festival was very well visited, and our 'Atelier Néerlandais' was well visited too!

Here you find more about the project, called: 'La Bédé est dans la rue' http://www.labedeestdanslarue.com/

The 'Atelier Néerlandais': atelier01 Artists from other countries were welcome to make a poster too, so there were some French comic artists, and a artist/publisher from Sweden who made a poster too. atelier02 Espace Franquin: this was our temporary studio.
