With his debut My Boy in 2006, which BilBOlbul honored with a show in 2008, Oliver Schrauwen has remained largely unknown to the general public but much loved by critics.
My Boy put Schrauwen’s influences in evidence with a graphic reminiscent of the 1900s in America and an extraordinary ability to channel masters sich as Winsor McCay and Lyonel Feininger in order to give life to surreal atmospheres with serious reflections on contemporaneity. When his Arsene Schrauwen was released by Fantagraphics in 2014 it was immediately heralded as one of the best of the year, he was unanymously praised.
Olivier Schrauwen proposes practicing a way to produce a narrative comic in a short time. At the end of the workshop every participant will have written and drawn an 8 page story.
A workshop for learning comics with one of today’s major alternative comic exponents at an international level.
