L'Enfer - Nancy, septembre 2019

PFC#6 : The PFC#6 book is out now.

Hip hip hooray! Once again and this time at the invitation of the Angoulême International Comics Festival, the great meeting of collective creation orchestrated by the ChiFouMi association took place on the occasion of its 46th edition in january 2019.
For a whole week, 16 creators explored the gigantic territory of contemporary comics. Whether known or less known, coming from Germany, Belgium, France, Israel, Switzerland, Thailand, the USA, their own approach of what comics can be has made us want to invite them to work and to experiment together in a place right next to Angoulême, where we are convinced emulation will materialize.

PFC#6 BOOK - cover

And once again, some magic happened : in a very few days, we managed to get a small run of books that attest of this very energy. All the PFC#6 residents collaborated on this new collective book.
It’s done on “under creative constraints” to say the least, but we’ll let you check about the process in the explanation within the book (or on our website for more informations).

It’s a 100 pages printed in full color, A5 size, square spine, and comes with some PFC#6 giant postcards, too.
Through the pages : 66 pages of a long and complete comics exercise including all of the 16 PFC#6 cartoonists + somes pics from the residency + some explanations about the thing that you read + various stuff, too.

And who did that ? Tara Booth (USA), Tuna Dunn (Thailand), Jul Gordon (Germany), Anna Haifisch (Germany), Keren Katz (Israël), Yannis La Macchia (Swiss), Jean-Christophe Menu (France), Anders Nilsen (USA), Delphine Panique (France), Laura Park (USA), Benoît Preteseille (France), Simon Roussin (France), Samplerman (France), Jessica Seamans (USA), Mathilde Van Gheluwe (Belgium) and Noah Van Sciver (USA).

500 copies of this crazy collaborative long story based on some ChiFouMi classic narrative deconstruction method. And then, it’s gone. In fact, we sold plenty of those during the Festival so : don’t sleep on this one and click here for more infos on the ChiFouMi webstore !

PFC#6 : Crazy rythm… until dawn!!

Last night, all the team (authors, chifoumists and interns…) worked hard and very late to finish the book file to be sent to the printer early this morning.

Awesome lettering by Laura!

On ChiFouMi side, monday was also the first installation day for the exhibition to come at the Paper Museum.

ROLL THE DICE… at the same time, this past few days other narrative exercices were created by the authors. Crazy working rythm, I’m telling you!

 

PFC#6 : Even on sunday…

On sunday, early morning, the authors joined the students from Nicolas Verstappen’s workshop at the EESI (European Image School) to work on some exercices and have a little chit chat all together.

Nicolas explaining different experimentations done during the previous days.

38 people, 1 exercice, the loop.

One of the exercices proposed by Nicolas coming from a work he did with his design and architecture students at Chulalongkorn University (Thaïland) : some beautiful settings ready to be filled with several stories and timelines.

With colours, in black and white, or abstract… there is talent!

 

PFC#6 : second step for the Loop exercice.

Since yesterday, the second step of  the Loop is on. Each one has to produce 3 pages connecting the previous propositions from 2 others authors.

PFC#6 : Le Grand Jeu …

A funny yet cosy place…

“CHARENTAISES” (typical french sleepers) to keep us warm!!

Tunlaya’s birthday….


PFC#6 : The Loop, step 1

The first step is done…

Each author chose at least 1 character, 1 setting and 1 object among the elements selected before to create a short story in 4 pictures.

PFC#6 : Meanwhile in Angoulême, Nicolas Verstappen’s workshop at the EESI…

Meanwhile in Angoulême Nicolas Verstappen runs a workshop at the EESI (European Image School). 20 international students are experimenting several exercices from OubaPo, Nick Sousanis’ “Grids and Gestures” experiment or 60′ comics. It rocks!

During the week, there will be several shared moment between the PFC#6 authors and the awesome team of students there : Adèle Mesones et Margaux Peron (EESI, Angoulême, France) ; Nicharee Sawartsoot et Sasi Tanyanurak (Chulalongkorn, Bangkok, Thailand) ; Quentin Bohuon et Irina Lisacheva (HEAR, Strasbourg, France) ; Dragana Radanović, Dido Drachman et Eva Lynen (LUCA, Bruxelles, Belgique) ; Nina Six et Léo Gillet (ERG, Bruxelles, Belgique) ; Ulrike Marais et Neeske Alexander (University of Stellenbosch, Cape Town, South Africa) ; Elísabet Rún Þorsteinsdóttir et Björn Heimir Önundarson (School of Visual Art, Reykjavík, Iceland) ; Tommi Ollikainen, Terhi Adler et Juliana Hyrri (Aalto University, Aalto, Finland) ; Théo Remmlinger et Félix Ernoult (HEAD, Genève, Suisse).

 

 

 

 

PFC#6 : Characters, objects and settings

Everyone has randomly chosen and then drawn a character, an object, and a setting. After that and among all these drawings, the group voted those that would finally be used for the Loop’s story.

Everyone draws what has been randomly picked

PFC#6: Day One

First morning!!

Everyboby finds easily his own place, after a good night sleep and a nice breakfast (despite the jetlag). It’s time to explain the rules established by June, J-C Menu and Anders Nilsen during the last editions and reworked a little since (we’ll get back to this later… ).
