The fifty-ninth meeting of the NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium will be held on Monday, September 23, 2013 at 7:00 PM at Parsons The New School, 2 West 13th Street, in the Bark Room (off the lobby). Free and open to the public.

David Prudhomme will offer a survey of his comic-strip work from its beginnings to the present time. He will try (but probably won’t have enough time or lucidity) to explain how the evolution of his approach to narrative – a structure of stokes, splashes, points, panels and pages – evokes an architecture of time. He will offer a few examples of comics that represent, for him, specific and fascinating time capsules.
David Prudhomme was born in 1969 and lives in Bordeaux, France. Left handed, hairless and myopic, he is also a graduate of the Arts School of Angoulême. His books reflect a diversity of styles and subject matter from the Louvre museum to musketeers. He will launch Rebetiko, a comic about Greek music published by SelfMadeHero, at the Brooklyn Book Festival in September 2013.
