Last night, Montreal celebrated the launch of Tom Gauld’s wonderful new book GOLIATH. Just like his work, his onstage presentation was filled with beautiful art and deadpan humour. Want to pick up a copy? Why not opt for a signed one! Come on down to the store before they quickly sell out. And for all you unfortunate ones out there who missed out on this great event, here are some pictures from last night:
Tom Gauld talks about his influences. Pictured above is the art of
Daniel Clowes and Chris Ware. Other influences mentioned included
Gary Larson, Asterix et Obelix, Deadline Magazine, and Edward Gorey.
Original Super Bronte Nintendo anyone?
An early draft of Gauld's Goliath character.
Coming up with dialogue for GOLIATH, during jury duty.
