Hi! How are you? I'm doing fine, thanks. My summer is almost over and soon I will have to go back to school. I had a lot of fun during my vacation, but before the new school year starts, I will visit your country... I think. More on that later, but first I have some news!
My dear friend JASON SCHACHTER will be going there to visit you with a backpack full of my original work on his... uhm... back! Because it's a backpack! Duh! So if you ever wanted to buy and own an original drawing from me, you should write to Jason and ask him where he will be during the PARIS MANGA show on September 12-13, 2009. Please check the link for more show information. Neat-O!
I'm sad because I wish I could be there with him for the convention itself, but unfortunately I have other stuff that's gonna keep me away from there. I've never been to a convention in a different country before and I would like to see what it looks like! Is it exciting? Is it fun? I don't know! I've never been to one!
So until then, Jason (along with a folder full of my Wolverine drawings, and Captain America drawings, and Batman drawings, and Superman drawings) will go instead of me because he is handsome. And Paris? While you're at the convention, please say "Hello!" to my other handsome friends, STEPHANE ROUX and TIM SALE. They are both good people and they are also good drawers!
Okay, so you know how I said, "I think I will visit..." earlier in my letter? I said that because I am not sure I will be there at all! I know what you're thinking: "Oh, no!" But if I do end up there, I promise I will be going to the 'OUT OF PICTURE 2' EXHIBIT at the ARLUDIK GALLERY. I really do hope to meet some of you who visit my blog! Does it sound confusing to you yet? Good. I'm pretty confused too!
Anyway, it was nice talking to you, Paris. Thanks so much for reading. I hope you guys have a great new year in school and I hope you also had a wonderful summer!
P.S. -This image is dedicated to my pal, DEAN TRIPPE; because he's a cool kid full of lotsa imaginations... and he's also a superhero when it comes to writing, drawing lettering, coloring, publishing, and everything! I have never met a guy who is more enthusiastic about comics than he is. He's really an awesome person and the guy is a drawer too! High five, Dean!
“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud
