It was some kind of skinny dog thing.
It was a Sphynx cat...or a Si Rex ...I assume
What's interesting to find out is Dom's selection process when it comes to avys... First a cat, now an aboriginal little guy....I'm lost
There is a link between (almost) all my avis : French animation.
My little aboriginal is in fact the most famous of African baby : Kirikou. A new kirikou movie was in theater recently so he was my obvious choice for this year.
My sphynx cat was the cat drawn by a genius of French comic industry. And in 2011, it was put on screen.

"Le chat du rabbin" seems quite interesting. I might indulge myself into it..As for Kirikou...is there a French version with English subtitles? I prefer the original version ...the emotions, intonation and dynamics of a movie/anime can't be dubbed into another language, imo. It will sound weird. Maybe weird is not the correct word, but rather impersonal.
I'm sure one with subtitles exist somewhere. I just took the first english youtube video I could find :-)
Since I heard about it on the radio, this song has been constantly on my head :-).

So I could saw him but unfortunately not him drawing
Ahh so you managed to go in the end. How was it? packed and busy I imagine....
Yes there was a lot of people for the autographs but it was ok during the conferences (Even the one with Inoue). And the atmosphere was really friendly, it wasn't at all the unreachable star.
I was a bit afraid since, before him, Nakamura didn't want to be taken in picture. But the exchange with the public was ok (I even could ask her a question :-).
I would have expected as much. From what I've seen of him, he seems like the laid back and quite welcoming type. So you didn't manage to get an autograph or anything?
And is this Hikaru Nakamura of Saint Young Men? when did you meet her?
There was 3 mangakas invited and a chinese guy. I saw her in the morning. She answered questions to the fan while drawing some of Saint Young man characters.
I got the autograph of the Chinese which was the only one with no queue or tickets and I regret not having talked with him a little more. I also had a drawing for a French comic. I'm not sure Japanese do a lot of drawings when they sign their books, I heard it is something typical of French artists to do it for free. I saw to late the stand of Casterman which was one of the only one where it was comfortable watching the artists draw. Maybe you know Ptiluc the guy who makes Rat's, he was making very cool ones (if you like his gory style :-).
It's always a shame with things like that when you don't get to get an autograph or drawing from an artist you probably won't see again. But you didn't exactly leave empty handed, so bonus .
No, I didn't know about Rat's but looked at some images now. What french comics are you reading now?
Rat's can be funny. It's not foor everyone taste though.
Now, I'm planning to buy the last one of Marc Antoine Mathieu that went out recently. Once again he did something completely crazy. Someone has recommend me La Gloire d'Héra (it's about the story of Héracles).
I really should read more french comics; still need to finish my collection of Tintin . La Gloire d'Héra looks very good; let me know how you find it
