Saturday 15th Oct 1.00-2.00pm BAC Screen One

Paul Gravett, one of the world’s leading experts on comics, believes that Edmond Baudoin and Craig Thompson share “a restless ambition to enlarge the graphic novel’s scope and their own creative range, and a sensual physicality in their line work to express both motion and emotion”.

Here, they share a stage and do what they do best – draw! They are ground-breaking artists from different sides of the Atlantic who are collaborating on a project which will undoubtedly create ripples throughout the comic art world.

Edmond Baudoin is a revolutionary comic artist and winner of three major awards at the Angouleme Comics Festival in France. His biography of the great surrealist painter Salvador Dali will be published in English by SelfMadeHero in October 2016 and will debut at the festival.

Craig Thompson is a multi-award winning artist (Harveys, Eisners, you name it) best-known for Blankets and Habibi.

Edmond and Craig will share their thoughts and processes with the inimitable comics expert Paul Gravett.
