About this product
- DescriptionRendered in vivid watercolour where parquet floors and patterned dresses morph together, The Wrong Place revolves around oft-absent Robbie, a charismatic lothario of mysterious celebrity who has the run of a city as chaotic as it is resplendent. Robbie's sexual energy captivates the attention of men and women alike; his literal and figurative brightness is a startling foil to the dreariness of his childhood friend, Francis. With a hand as sensitive as it is exuberant, Angouleme-winner Brecht Evens's first English graphic vel captures the strange chemistry of social interaction. The Wrong Place contrasts life as it is, angst-ridden and awkward, with life as it can be: spontaneous, uninhibited, and free.
- Author BiographyBelgian cartoonist Brecht Evens was born in 1986 and studied illustration in Ghent. Important mentors were his teacher Goele Dewanckel, an illustrator, and cartoonist/comedy-coach/zen master Randall Casaer. His debut comic book A Delivery from Outer Space, was released in 2005. The slightly melodramatic Vincent was released in 2006, followed in 2007 by a little nocturnal fantasy called Night Animals. His latest book, The Wrong Place (2009), started out as a graduation project and was a departure from the more typical comic art of his earlier books. It recently won the Haarlem Comics Festival's Willy Vandersteen Award for best Dutch-language graphic novel. Brecht lives in Brussels, where he lives on illustration work and Flemish cartoonist-grants.
