This crazy and unusual project assembles 11 creators of the first rank — comic artists, illustrators and graphic artists. For the first time, these creators step over from the stillness of drawing to the movement of animation. They will tell us about their primeval fears. In Winter 2008 in the movie theaters, open the doors of their fears. And their fears shall become yours.

A tour in Europe !
On July 17th, 2003 at Nouveau Casino, 109 rue Oberkampf, 75011 Paris, France, Reservations: +33 1 43 57 57 40
Other datas : July 13rd at club Optimo in Glasgow, July 15th in London, July 19th in Montreux (Switzerland) for the Jazz Festival

Formed by Richard McGuire in the late 1970s, "Liquid Liquid" stand at the nexus of art-rock and dance music, a unique NYC brand of neurotic funk. After years of going their own ways, the group (Richard McGuire, Dennis Young, Salvatore Principato and Scott Hartley) get back together. Their reunion debut in March at the Knitting Factory in New York and in Detroit. Success is amazing, and American press is full of praise. The group is best known for the surprise hit "Cavern". Last year, Spike Lee's 25 Hour used it at its theme song and trailer sound track music. In Glasgow, a fans' club adopted the name of another hit: "Optimo". An awaited tour in Europe !

Book: P+O
Popeye & Olive as you never saw them...
Cornelius Editions, Paris, France, 2002
Guided by a principle of pleasure, P+O is organised like a grammar of the act of love, animated by two of the most famous characters of the golden age of cartoon. Richard McGuire leads us, in a syncopated rythm, to discover one of the most beautiful amorous pavan ever drawn. With modesty, but without any prudishness, he unrolls before our astonished eyes most of the great erotic figures. Inspired by shapes and facts known to all, he simplifies them until they become transparent and luminous. A brightness that our eyes are just not yet accustomed to.

P+O, Cornelius Editions, Paris, France, 2002, Collection Louise, 64 pages in two colours,
ISBN 2909990605, 9€
