MRR Comics & Art Issue Artist Q&A with Craoman
This month’s MRR magazine is the Comics & Art Issue! Throughout March we are highlighting some of the participating artists right here on MRR.com. Today we hear from Craoman from Marseille, France.
What are your main publishing projects?
I publish books with le Dernier Cri, the last one is called Ears Crisis. It’s a comic about two tours I went on with bands across Eastern Europe.
What are some of your artistic influences?
All the weird things around the world: Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes, Mike Diana, T. Nemoto, N. Maruo, T. Ott.
I stopped going to hardcore shows when my friends from Youssouf Today stopped playing. I’m now more into punk noise like Bastard, Cop Shoot Cop, A.H. Kraken, Arab on Radar, and Doomsday Students.
How would you describe your style of drawing?
The reality with the eyes closed.
What other punk projects are you involved with?
I’m making covers for Ape’s Unit in Italy and Besoin Dead in Paris.
What’s in the future for you as a cartoonist/artist?
I’m finishing an 80-page comic about three teenagers involved in a Neo-Nazi skinhead gang. It’s called Breizh Skins.
