Panel Borders: …there is Joost Swarte
Starting a month of shows about the work of comic book creators who mix together different cultures and mediums in their work, Alex Fitch talks to acclaimed Dutch cartoonist and graphic designer Joost Swarte about his career so far. Fitch and Swarte discuss the latter’s covers for The New Yorker and RAW magazine (also reprinted as the front of the Tate coffee table book Comics Art), the Fantagraphics collection of his strip work “Is that all there is?” and the artist’s work in designing children’s books, theatrical architecture and stained glass windows.
(Recorded in front of an audience at The Lakes International Comic Art Festival, October 2014, originally broadcast 6th November 2014 on Resonance 104.4 FM)
