Tomorrow at 11am on Resonance FM, Panel Borders: Death of the Artist
Starting a month of shows about comics and graphic novels which occupy the middle ground between ‘mainstream’ titles and independent publishing, guest presenter Tim Pilcher talks to artist Karrie Fransman about her latest graphic novel, Death of the Artist published by Jonathan Cape, which depicts a fateful weekend where five university friends’ hedonistic party leads to tragedy. Tim and Karrie also discuss her first graphic novel The House that Groaned, her comic for the Red Cross – ‘Over Under Sideways Down’ – and the nature of the collaborators involved in her most recent work. Recorded and edited by Alex Fitch at Graphic Brighton festival, May 2015.
