My Convention Sketchbook 2003-2013 #48: David B.

A rare appearance at SDCC 2005 by L’Association co-founder David B. is how I got this beauty!  This drawing would make a great book cover, or I’m seeing a poster for a book fair perhaps?  He, and his girlfriend/wife(..agent?) were some of the nicest, and most quietly charming people I’ve ever met.  I just hope that their time in the insane pressure cooker of comics collector BO & sweat that is Comicon wasn’t their only experience in the U.S.  I really enjoyed his book Epileptic from Pantheon. It chronicled his experience growing up with a brother suffering from severe epileptic seizures.   David B. also has some other works published by Fantagraphics like the Epileptic spinoff Babel, which is part of the unique, oversized Ignatz format.  I embedded a short 20th anniversary video about L’Association.  Like me, you might not understand what they’re saying, but there’s some great art to gaze at!
