PFC5 Autoptic 2

Those very last items are now on sale on our online shop ; it shouldn’t stay this long before the very last copies will be sold, and we’re sorry for this awful agressive marketting method…  😉

More really soon !

A conversation with Aidan Koch on du9.org

On a very regular basis, those super nice folks at du9.org give us some news of the great moments we all lived all together by the past, during our Pierre Feuille Ciseaux (“PFC”) classic events.

This very week, du9 share with us some long interview with Aidan Koch, who was part of the PFC5 residency in Minneapolis during the 2015 summer. Aidan is a brilliant artist who is using comics (and not only) to express herself and tell things with a real refreshing and very unique twist. As Xavier Guilbert says :

“With one foot in comics and the other in contemporary art, Aidan Koch is definitely a polymorphic artist who draws, sculpts, works on fabric, publishes littles books and makes installations. In every one of her projects, she works with fragile things, connects fragments, suggests impressions — building with every stroke a narrative that is both elegant and cristalline.”

You can read the whole thing online, which is right here.

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…)

Charles Burns and Sammy Harkham have a chat with the students

After various meetings with some europeans authors as well as with Aidan Koch and Josh Bayer, Charles Burns and Sammy Harkham finally shared a couple of hours with the students of the workshop. (more…)

Imposition

Once the 3 first panels done, the authors, in an order determined by drawing lots, chose the sequence they want to finalize. Now it’s time to put things together by the imposition of the book. (more…)

A faceless goat, a wood guy, a flashlight…

The first step of the look has been launched. Each author has chosen a character, an object, a setting and is elaborating the first panels of the future “Loop”. The exercise is by now legendary, but surprises nonetheless expect us… (more…)

The elaboration of the poster goes on…
