2. International comic festival Angoulême 2014

From Januari 30 - Februari 2 the 'Festival international de la BD' will be held in Angoulême, 
with the Dutch cartonist Willem as president of the festival.


In honour of Willem there will be a delegation of 20 Dutch comic artists present in Espace Franquin. 
Every day they will make new silkscreened posters 
to be pasted at several spots in Angoulême. 
Like the street culture in the 60s - 70s, the roaring period of Willem's first years in Paris.

Among the artists are Joost Swarte and Nanne Meulendijks.

This year Griffioen Grafiek will not have a stand at the festival, but we will be there to enjoy the festivities.

First appearance of Jopo de Pojo 1973

40 years ago Joost Swarte was asked to contribute to an international comic project about the Sixties. He drew a two page story introducing Jopo the Pojo for the first time. In 2011 the book The Someday Funnies finally was published and this year the original pages returned to Joost Swarte.
