Delightful Delicious Delisle

Here are a few photos from the Guy Delisle event last night at the Drawn & Quarterly bookstore. Guy's talk packed the house; having arrived late, I ended up squashed against the window display at the very front of the store while people continued to squeeze in throughout the lecture! Despite the big crowd, Guy's conversational speaking style and decision to eschew the microphone lent an unexpected aura of low-key intimacy to the evening, a nice relief from the frenzy of the holiday season.


Guy signs as chief Chris Oliveros and translator Helge Dascher look on. Over the course of her 15-year association with Drawn & Quarterly, Helge has translated everything from Dupuy & Berberian to Abouet & Oubrerie to more Dupuy & Berberian, 12 years later! Helge is also astoundingly awesome. Proof? These amazing cookies she baked shaped like Guy Delisle's head, with a variety of expressions illustrated in chocolate frosting. Sweet!


Thank you to everyone who came out!
