Meanwhile, In Tuoul Tompoung

Tuesday, March 9th, 2004

Hallelujiah. A friend has put together a lightbox. Now I can work on my Spirit House drawings.

I may like to draw fast but living in Cambodia means that I am depending more on photo reference.

Doing a bit of consulting in Phnom Penh. Trying to beef up my French for October’s Cambodian Comics Exhibition. So three mornings a week I head over to the Russian Market and drink Ratanakiri Hilltribe Coffee with my tolerant tutor, Jean-Luc. All those damn accent marks. But the French do kickass comics, I refuse to give up.

I’m hanging my hat at Sakapel House, Phnom Penh. A few other visual artists live there. It’s just down the street from

The Association for Helping the Miserable Corpses. You just can’t make up stuff like this.
