A unique opportunity, which was brought to the BD & Comics Passion Festival by Comica Festival, to hear Jaime Hernandez, one of the most talented contemporary comics creators in America, if not the world. Jaime discussed the lives and loves of his crazy ‘locas’ – Maggie and Hopey – and other much-loved characters from the independent phenomenon ‘Love & Rockets’. From his childhood through his teenage punk years to today, Jaime talked about his inspirations and creative process and demonstrate his art techniques by drawing live, projected onto a giant screen. His latest acclaimed titles are a delirious take on superheroes in ‘God and Science’ and the ongoing 'Love and Rockets: New Stories’ volumes. Jaime will be in conversation with Woodrow Phoenix, author of ‘Rumble Strip’ and ‘Plastic Culture’, editor of ‘Felt Mistress: Creature Couture’, co-editor of the award-winning ‘Nelson’ and co-creator of ‘Sugar Buzz’.

This talk took place at the Institut français on Thursday the 30th of May 2013 as part of the BD & Comics Passion festival.
