“Some Breath King / Break Something”, PFC#4 residents book.

If you’re familiar with PFC, perhaps you noticed that each year, we launch some crazy project-inside-the-project kind of thing : trying to make some book appears from this nice artists gathering, during the one and only very week where they’re all around.

For PFC#4, our main man Anders Nilsen, always on the run when it comes to add one more thing on his already giant-double-XXL to-do-list, decided to take care about it. Months before the beginning of the residency, he remembered that during his own PFC#3 residency in France, back in 2011, he was part of the giant process that our friends from Icinori launched while here. And he got the idea to work on his very own twist about it. (more…)

PFC#4 pre-afterword.

Well, it’s been a few days since PFC#4 is over. What an incredible adventure it was for us at ChiFouMi, and how many memories we got to share now…
The next blognote will be a big, huge kind of resume of the fourth instalment of our little comic book laboratory ; it will take a few days to find its way here, so hopefully you’ll be patient enough (shitty jetlag !) !
But before that, maybe a little “thumbs up !” to the shadow people, those who doesn’t appears on every picture or in every summary, but that without whom PFC#4 probably didn’t look the same (or didn’t look this nice !). (more…)

And how was Autoptic ?

In a single word : DOPE.
In a few : incredible organisation, super nice location, awesome exhibitors, great panels, exciting public.

Last day.

This was PFC#4 last day.
So many things to tell, but as today is the AUTOPTIC long-awaited day and that there’s still plenty of stuff to do, we’ll be back soon to talk about all of these crazy last hours…

A few days with Jaime Hernandez

We told you before that the great Jaime Hernandez is around for some days, from some meeting with public at MCAD (related to his awesame retrospective exhibition) and the Autoptic fest this sunday.
The man is not only something of a comic book legend, who’s still got some pretty hot skills as we can see it in his last book, but he’s also an incredible nice, generous and simple man. Far away from so many divas in the field, he spent his whole time with PFC#4 people, and was kind enough to jump into some collective exercise. Don’t have to tell you that everybody was here for this exercise !



The opening of the retrospective.


The public talk with Zak Sally (the retrospective curator) was an incredible moment…


…shared with a few people !


It’s been 30 years since Jaime Hernandez do his thing. And 30 years later, young readers and artists are still really, really hot on what he does.


Some PFC#4 24′ exercise with the Man.

More news soon !
