Stripgids Festival Turnhout
Tuesday, 2 June 2015
This Belgian comic festival will this year be held in the weekend of 12 - 13 June.
Saturday we will be present at the fair and introduce three new silkscreens, all related to music.
Both artists (Mezzo and Erik Kriek) will be present at the festival.
Mezzo's book "Love in vain" (about the life of Robert Johnson) and his exhibition last January in Angoulême inspired us to make two new black and white silkscreens about the blues. One of Robert Johnson and one of Peetie Wheatstraw.
Erik Kriek, a Dutch comic artist, is working on a new graphic novel "In the Pines" a collection of stories inspired by country songs (January 2016 Scratch books). In the same style he made this image of Johnny Cash.
