Sometimes, when the afternoon drags, I’ll sit staring into the fluorescent lights like a moth into the flame of workplace inefficiency, and I’ll daydream about life elsewhere. What would my life be like as a cartoonist in Europe, I wonder? Crumb moved to France, as did Darrow. I like France (the south, anyway). Could I be a cartoonist there?
I was able to get a small glimpse yesterday when I visited Bugpowder and read a post about American-living-in-England cartoonist Matt Broersma, who released an eBook version (in English) of his recently published travel comic (in French), The Grand Tour. Inevitably, I went to Matt’s website, where I found a slice of a cartoonist’s life living abroad in full Blogger glory.
As far as the eBook is concerned, I’ve only glanced at it, but the first few pages were good. Matt’s art is wonderful and he creates a very distinctive visual world for his cartoon self to live and travel in. Oh, and it is FREE to download, so go to it already.
