MRR Comics & Art Issue Artist Q&A with Julien Dupont
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 Julien Dupont from Lyon, France.
What are your main publishing projects?
I’ve been doing visuals for the past ten years for underground shows and bands. I recently did the cover for a French band called Taulard.
What are some of your artistic influences?
I don’t read comics
I don’t really have a specific influence in music…I listen to a lot of different styles of music.
How would you describe your style of drawing?
Post or proto something I suppose…
What other punk projects are you involved with?
I play with my solo project and continue to play in a noise band called Motherfucking. I was also playing in Frustros. I am involved in the best place to me in this city, called La Luttine. It’s a space open every Saturday where you can find a non-profit distro, fanzines and a really comfortable couch with punks and Noisemaker [also featured in the Comics & Art Issue! —Ed.]. We also have exhibitions, food parties, movie screenings, and serve free coffee, since 2006.
What’s in the future for you as a cartoonist/artist?
To take my pens and to draw, as usual. “No Future” sang the “Saxe” Pistols!
