Bye Alvin.

Alvin Buenaventura was one of the most exciting publishers in the very field we like to dig in.
He leaves plenty of people with an infinite sadness but also a whole, full range of incredible books, could it be through the various and great ones he published within his Buenaventura Press inprint, or through his new printing adventure, Pigeon Press.
He patiently shared with us the artwork of such talents as Gary Panter, Daniel Clowes, Julie Doucet, Chris Ware, Matt Furie, Johnny Ryan, Phil Elverum, Vanessa Davis, Paul Hornschemeier, Anders Nilsen, Lisa Hanawalt, Adrian Tomine, Helge Reumann & Xavier Robel, Tom Gauld, Ron Rege Jr and so on, and of course the production of such unforgettable books as (amongst others !) the #7 of Sammy Harkham’s Kramer’s Ergot anthology back in the days, or the very very last Daniel Clowes or Charles Burns productions… Just a few examples…

"Elvis Road" cover detail

At ChiFouMi, there’s plenty, plenty of the people we worked/work with told us how great he was as a publisher, as an influence. And for the very few times we shared with him, he left us with the impression that he was just an extra nice guy, too.

Thanks for the books, thanks for the art, thanks for all, Alvin.
We’ll miss you.

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.

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…)
