This past week, I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing French cartoonist Emmanuel Guibert. Over lunch at a Chelsea bistro, I got to know Guibert a bit, as we spoke about a myriad of topics, including his relationships with the subjects of his books, Alan's War: The Memories of G.I. Alan Cope and the just released, The Photographer. Guibert even demonstrated his art technique on my copy of The Photographer - see below.
The portrait is not part of my GRAPHIC NYC series, but perhaps will be used in some future project.
Thanks to Mark Siegel and Gina Gagliano of First Second Books for getting me together with Guibert.
