Joann Sfar’s Inspiration


So you devoured The Rabbi’s Cat, Little Vampire or Klezmer? You loved the Gainsbourg movie? Come and listen to the extraordinarily gifted jack-of-all-trades artist Joann Sfar. As part of a stimulating conversation with Paul Gravett (co-director of Comica Festival), Joann Sfar will talk about his influences and inspirations, with a great deal of passion… and tongue in cheek!

This event for ‘grown ups’ is in association with the Institut Français, London and is part of the South Ken Kids Festival at this venue on November 23rd to 25th. Don’t miss the other events -  Sfar will also talk and draw with his hero Quentin Blake, and join other guests including BD creator Emile Bravo. Photo © Arte.
