Some news from The Faceless Goat.

Two weeks ago, we had the chance to get both creators Anders Nilsen and Marc Bell at the opening of our new exhibition in Besançon, “The Faceless Goat”.
In two different places, this art show is all about what was last summer’s residency that ChiFouMi organised with the precious help from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. And because this Pierre Feuille Ciseaux residency is about creation, we did our best ot show many of the various things hanging on the wall.
Hope you’ll like it !

24 hours comics day 2015

A week-end for a few cartonnists that will once again try to deal with this 24 hours day idea. (more…)

Who wants to be part of our next 24 hours comics day session ?

We are doing our best trying to make things in order.

First things first, we’ll close this crazy and hectic PFC5 chapter and send to all our kickstarter pledgers what they are patiently waiting for : books, posters, prints… Everything should be finished quite soon now, and after that will come the holy time of shipping everything. More soon about that !

Meanwhile, we are currently working on our next collaborative and collective creation moment : some new, improved 24 hours comics day session, complete with new constraints and, more than that, some weird specific twists, à la ChiFouMi. We don’t wanna tell you too much about it now, cause authors that will be part of this mess should get the surprise, too. This under constraints project works so much better then… (more…)

Jetlag and first memories.

We’ll get some infos from our long-awaited deliveries pretty soon now (the book, the poster… the posterS, should we add !), but before that, here’s some news from our residents-cartoonists friends who, as it looks, really like the PFC5 residency.
As much as we did, probably ! (more…)

Mission accomplished.

(more…)

Autoptic!!

Yippee!! Live from Autoptic! (more…)

More awesomeness printed stuff finding its way to the Kickstarter !

So !
It wasn’t scheduled and just went naturally those last hours but as usual when it comes to PFC madness, some authors used the huge and great printshop just one door away from our week-long work-room (thanks to Kara Gregory and Diana Eieher from the MCAD printshop) and well… Things happened !
So, soon on Kickstarter : (more…)

Hey ! New stuff up for grabs on our Kickstarter !

Thanks to all of y’all’s help PFC 5 is funded with time to spare!

But lets not let that momentum die! Now is the chance to start laying the foundation for PFC 6 so we can keep exploding the boundaries of the comic art form. (more…)

On the exhibition side, things goes well too.

Autoptic Kick-Off Party and Art Show : Nothing Will Ever Be the Same is the title of the group exhibition we’re putting together at Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis to kick off Autoptic on August 7th, 7-10, right after PFC5 ending. (more…)

Meanwhile in Thailand…

While in Minneapolis the residency is in full spring, on the other side of the planet other people work on the sequential graphic narrative experiment. (more…)

Wanna see what the 3 colors silkscreen collaborative poster looks like ?
