Following the publication of my latest book with Jonathan Cape, I'm also taking a part for the festival of Bande Desinee in Bastia, Corsica.
Between 3rd -6th April.
My work will be shown for the first time in Japan!
From 15th March to 25th May, at the Kyoto International Manga Museum.kurasiki ehon-kan, as I happen to too. The artists include jose parrondo Jerome Boulbes Freddy Nadolny Poustochkine A-li-ce and Gaelle Duhaze . I'm so honoured to be presented by these amazing talents from France. I'm indeed the odd one in the basket, as the exhibition is about the French comic art and I'm Japanese based in the UK, but please don't go into that.
The original pages from 'L'incyable histoire de la sauce soja' will be exhibited and some of my charcoal drawings too. I hope to get hold of some photos for the exhibiton and put them up in here.
Basically I was in France for the Angouleme comic festival representing my course last weekend and missed the chance to buy the Saturday Guardian for my book review.But very luckily my landlady bought it. So I have a copy now!
