Guy Delisle

Slide Show and signing with travel momerist Guy Delisle THURSDAY, 17th December 7pm-10pm 211 Bernard Ouest

For Pyongyang: a Journey in North Korea andShenzhen: a Travelogue from China, Delisle travelled by himself to North Korea and China as animator for a French company. In Burma Chronicles, Delisle travelled with his family to Myanmar, where he watched his young son while his wife worked for Doctors Without Borders. His "stranger in a strange land" is bleakly humorous as he subtly relates the realities of living under the watchful eyes of an oppressive government that the western world rarely gets to see.

Delisle has been nominated for two coveted Eisner Awards, for Best Writer/Artist and Best Reality-Based Graphic Novel. He is also the cartoonist of the wordless comics
Aline & The Others and Albert & The Others. In addition to Drawn & Quarterly, Delisle is published by Editions de L'Association, Editions Delcourt, and Editions Dargaud in France, and Editions de La Pastèque in Montreal. He now lives in the South of France with his wife and children. He is currently working on a sketchbook for D+Q on his family's recent year spent in Jerusalem.
