Comic Book Heroes: Seth

As per my last post, I was at ELCAF in June and I managed to meet Seth and see his “in conversation” session.  Seth is so cute, they should make dolls of him!

I have to mention the lovely lady above in the turquoise dress – she managed the Drawn & Quarterly book signings really well as it could easily have been chaotic in such a small venue. Thanks, lovely lady!

Seth did two signing sessions at the Drawn & Quarterly stand and he spends so long talking to people and doing sketches when he signs that he might as well have stayed there all day.  He’s very different to Chris Ware (although they obviously get on really well too) in that he’s very chatty and asks where you come from and what you do – I bet he’s a very good people watcher.  Anyway, he’s a delight to talk to and very stylish.  He did a great sketch in my Palookaville book and coloured it in with pens from his Asian knock-off Peanuts pencil case!

When they make Seth dolls, put me down for one!

About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.
