God is my Palm Pilot

On my Cambodia Blog I noted the outrage that greeted the ‘Baby Buddha Bikini’

‘ Processionaires’ of Simulacra

Wednesday, May 5th, 2004

Been reading some comics by the Cambodian – French artist SERA. (Thanks, Carole!) He is well known for ‘Impasse et Rouge’, about the final days of Phnom Penh. Khmer themes manifest themselves in his other work, too.

Amazing use of color.

Published works:

Impasse Et Rouge (Edition Albin Michel) 2003

Sortie de Route (avec Polonsky) (Editions Pierre-Marie Jamet) 2000

Antichambre de la Nuit (Editions Pierre-Marie Jamet) 1999

HKO (Casterman) 1997
