An exposition opening will be held at Phnom Penh’s French Institute on International Human Rights Day, Thursday December 10th.

From his first years, he didn’t keep any precise memories , but he decided to collect the testimony of his father – a doctor by this time – in order to make a graphic novel.

Here are a few old dream comics! My dreams used to have a lot of surreal processions and festivals in them. Now my actual life has them because people in this town will do anything for a chance to say to hell with traffic let’s shuffle down the street - and I don’t ever dream at all.
Congrats to Ben Hutcho on his 40th!
