A COMICA REVIEW BY:

SYLVIA LIBEDINSKY


Sylvia Libedinsky (with Nick Wadley) has been making pictures and cartoons since the mid-1990s. Their DoubleTakeAway cartoons were published in the Daily Telegraph 1996-97, and in the Royal Academy Magazine 1997-98 and their weekly Lax Column cartoons ran in the Financial Times from 2000 to 2002. Sylvia attended the Comica Between The Panels: Graphic Literature Night featuring Rutu Mordan, Andrzej Klimowski and Rian Hughes on 15 June 2007 at the ICA.

Sorry I had to leave so early last Friday but the evening was, as usual (or perhaps more than usual) a success.  I was so impressed by all three of them. Klimowski was the only one I knew, but I can trust that however different the authors may be from each other you can spark a conversation between them… and with us.  Every time I go to these events I come back inspired to do more work. I was talking to Nick about this (just what is it about cartoonists that makes them so immediately likable?).
