Dear friends and artists,
I've decided to create a Facebook Professional account to promote your awesome Tributes to Valentina to promote Fantagraphics Crepax collection.
Don't judge me wrong, I love you all a lot and I sincerely apreciate all your support with some of my ideas, but I need to split in my mind what's Professional and what's personal in order to gain more focus in the work that I do, be it curating exhibitions, book collections, interviews, presentation videos, prefaces to books or book presentations.
I'll organize the tributes by artist in alphabetical order and put each artist in bold to be easier for you to see your tributes and where they were exhibited along your quotes about the character Valentina and your Biography aswell.
Many thanks to all of you for all your work and hope that you continue to support some of my ideas.
Special thanks to Gary Groth, Caterina Crepax and my muse and source of inspiration, my kitty Ilvie that was stolen from my sight recently.
Rune Ryberg - "I'm not quite sure what to say as a phrase over Valentina other than I really enjoy the works of Guido Crepax. Beautiful linework and fun psychedelic take on Erotism."
Rune Ryberg (1979) works with both comics and animation films, writing stories and developing concepts.
Runes artistic style is a color saturated quirky, skewed and rumpled impression of dynamic movement and expression. In 2014 he made his debut as a comic artist with Gigant published in Denmark, Sweden and Finland. Rune graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Character Animation from The Animation Workshop, Denmark (2008) and has since worked on several film and tv productions.
Gigant will be published at AdHouse Books September 2015:
