Lancement de BD Plummet de Sherwin Tjia !

Come celebrate the launch of PLUMMET, a new graphic novel by Sherwin Tjia, published by Conundrum Press!

When Amelia “Mel” Eichenwald wakes up one
morning from a dream where she’d been falling, she finds
herself actually falling – but in endless freefall towards an
Earth that is no longer there, and surrounded by the junk of human existence. From high heels to houses, billions of random items drop alongside her like fallout from an exploded mall.

Soon she discovers that she’s not alone. Others have been similarly plucked out of their lives and dropped off in mid-air. But why? For what purpose? And more importantly, and more pressing – what is she going to eat? Where can she safely sleep?
Plummet follows Mel as she attempts to survive and thrive, find allies, and negotiate being predator or prey. What makes
us human and what keeps us human? How do you take a
stand when there’s literally no place to sit? What happens
when the end of the world removes it entirely?

With Plummet, Montreal-based writer and artist Sherwin
Sullivan Tjia explores a stunning new dimension in a graphic novel that’s part fable, part post-apocalypse. After the success
of their graphic novel debut, The Hipless Boy, nominated
for a Doug Wright Award and four Ignatz Awards, Plummet will plunge you into a high-flying and hypnotic blend of
Heaven, Hell and high water.

New Drawing Billy Mavreas

I have made 12 new drawings, larger than usual, 20 x 26 inches. Mixed media.

You know when you go to a friend or relatives house and they have this jar full of pens and pencils and markers and half of them are dead and you test each one out to see if they work and then you make a drawing out of those tests? Well this is like that.

Thursday 30 May, from 6 until 9 pm
