»This August, highly regarded French illustrator, McBess (aka Matthieu Bessudo) will be exhibiting previously unseen canvas work, prints and 3D objects at The Book Club. His fascinatingly intricate work provides snapshots of his own experiences and is a contemplative diary of illustrative creations. The Folding Knife contemplates both current and childhood memories from which the title of the exhibition was born. A folding knife was a childhood keepsake of Matthieu’s and also reflects the detailed nature of his work. Don’t Panic commented on McBess ‘he’s so wonderfully French that he can make what would otherwise be freaky cartoon porn seem lovely and whimsical’. […]

McBess has also invited artists and close friends who have inspired him, to create new works for the exhibition. In keeping with the McBess format, all pieces created will be black and white.«

We let that sink in uncommented.

“Hello! I’m sending back 1 copy of Der Ziegensauger because it is abolutely not sellable. The graphic style is actually tasteless. To avoid financial conflicts please send 1 copy of Die Menschenfabrik. That one looks like a comic at least. Merci in advance! Best …”

Berlin in May

Here’s a pic from the previously announced book signing at Grober Unfug in Berlin on May 28. It was a lot of fun again:

From left to right: A sceptic Michael Meier (Die Menschenfabrik, Rotopolpress), a hungry Thomas Wellmann (Der Ziegensauger, Rotopolpress) and a dilligent Aisha Franz (Alien, Reprodukt). You can see more pics of that cheerful afternoon on the Blog of Reprodukt. (There you can can see Meier and Wellmann actually drawing.)

P.S.: Many thanks to Mawil for the picture.
