Behind the scenes of The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) dir. Wes Anderson
Johanna Tagada is a young French artist based in Berlin. An abstract painter and traveler, her work explores the worlds of fine art, textiles, drawings, publishing, and photography.
On a sad day, we wouldn’t mind living in one of her pieces. Her simultaneously bright yet restrained colour use is what keeps us coming back for more. Combined with beautiful forms and patterns, you can’t deny the pure sense of happiness and joy present within her work!
This time around it’s all snippets from a comic I am working on. I am painfully aware that I don’t actually have much in the way of proper experience in drawing sequential work (or to be more accurate I have drawn a meagre 24 pages to date). In order to get a bit more practice in before I start work on an ongoing series this fall (more on that later), I’m taking a leaf out of the book of Becky Cloonan and drawing a mini-comic with a view to having it available to buy for those of you attending Thought Bubble this November.
You will be able to see that all my favorite tropes are covered - beards, boats, skeletons, the sea and it’s mysteries - and there will no doubt be more snippets posted between now and November.

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” ― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
