I’ve heard that Belgian artist Brecht Evens likes to party. I wonder how he finds enough time to do so given how labour-intensive his graphic novels appear. A lot of comic artists play with black and white, maybe a wash of grey or digital flat colours in firm boxes, while Brecht deploys watercolours, watercolours, and watercolours for hundreds of incredibly flexible frames. I can’t even start to imagine how he manages his pages.
