I love pimping out Ryan Heshka’s shows, not just because he’s a good friend (full disclosure), and he’s quite humble about promoting himself, but I really adore his work. I know I’m not alone though. Here’s some info about his newest solo show in Milan, Italy. Only a few weeks away!
Se siete in città quella settimana, non perdere questa mostra!
Hugo Pratt Interview (en français). I’m not certain when this was shot exactly.
He talks here about how comics are seriously hard work, if you’re doing it right, and about the intense research he’d perform whenever embarking on a new project.
I’ve become a little obsessed with Pratt since arriving here (the apartment we’re staying in has, among many other wonderful books, 13 issues of Pratt’s Corto Maltese, which are helping me learn Spanish!), especially since I realized he also created “Jesuit Joe”, a sort of Native American Robin Hood, riding around the “frozen Canadian North” wearing a stolen RCMP jacket. Boss!
