Minneapolis ❤

ChiFouMi got some strong love for Minneapolis since importants bits of our little story is directly linked to this city.
To the people we met there, to those who made ChiFouMi-related things happened there, for the energy we get there, and for the strong and vivid memories we share from there.
Right now we think about Zak, Kevin, Jaime, Mandie, Barb, Dan, Bart, Jenny, Jordan, Caitlin, Jack, Peter, Noah, Raighne, Maggie, Tom, etc, all at MCAD and Autoptic, and to all the other people there, dealing also with their legitimate anger, their deep disgust, their sadness too.

His name was George Floyd.

What PFC#7 was all about (in 876543789 pics).

PFC#7 is over.
It was a crazy one indeed, complete with incredible productions, fantastic artwork, great collective visual cacophony, and absolutely delightful artists totally involved into the project : thanks again to each of them.
And thanks to all the people who found their way in the Espace Franquin labyrinth and who found us at some point !
More soon to come : some PFC#7 productions (silkscreened accordion books ; tons of various xeroxed minis ; etc) on our online boutique in the days to come ; some great feedbacks here or there ; and probably more (and before that, you can check all the posts done during PFC#7 online here and also here for plenty of pics and vids on instagram)
