Pompeii was reviewed in Le Monde while I was at the Angoulême festival!

====================================

Fires of Love

American Frank Santoro’s Pompeii is disconcerting at first glance in that it falsely appears unfinished; sketched in pencil or drawn in marker, its pages look like drafts of comics. After reading the work, it occurs to you that the author could not have taken a better approach to evoke the evanescence of a world on the brink of annihilation, or how a whimsical romance in 79 A.D., following the sentimental troubles of two Pompeian couples, brutally transforms into pure tragedy with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

    "A lot of people are able to use social media more casually than I can and feel less conflicted about it. You go to an art-marketing class, and they tell you that you have to constantly remind people of your existence. Even if you’re not directly telling them to buy your thing, you should be…

“The escalation of culture and technology to a certain messianic goal. Is there a point to all this time-wasting activity, or is all this confusion that we feel with technology and all of the metaphysical torture from social media—is it all going to be okay in the future when the singularity happens? We’ll just have evolved?”
