(Graphic Novelist, Writer)
[September 21, 1975 - ]
Carnet De Voyage (Travel Journal) (2004)
Craig Thompson spent three months traveling through
Barcelona, the Alps, and France, as well as Morocco, researching his next
graphic novel, Habibi. Spontaneous sketches and a travelogue diary
document his adventures and quiet moments, creating a raw and intimate
portrait of countries, culture and the wandering artist.
At 592 pages, Blankets may well be the single
largest graphic novel ever published without being serialized first.
Wrapped in the landscape of a blustery Wisconsin winter, Blankets explores
the sibling rivalry of two brothers growing up in the isolated country,
and the budding romance of two coming-of-age lovers. A tale of security
and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the
origins of faith.
A profound and utterly beautiful work from Craig Thompson.
