hula hoop 3
Tom de Pekin - solo editions ma non troppo
Diary drawn in the spring of 2017 in Reunion Island and in summer 2018 around Montreal: moments captured with gouache and crayons.
"Between the river and the ocean, the blue mass and the clarity of the sky, the circles spinning, absorbing the shape of our fragile silhouettes, we had to unite the two and find through this mixture a passage that would allow us to escape. to those thoughts that are too present to separate from them, we wanted to give our bodies and souls energy to dance in the center of time, stories change, friendships stay. "
This album closes the Hula Hoop cycle initiated in 2016 by solo ma non troppo as well as the artist's eponymous journal.

I will not go to summer camp anymore
Tom Peking - Editions on your slate / liquid sky
Between fantasies and memories, Tom of Peking, makes us relive a fragment of his youth. "I will not go to summer camp anymore" reports troubled events arising from his memory, alternately funny or dramatic. This ingenuous text reveals the first emotions of the author and the dreams and disappointments that accompany them. A falsely naive tale in which sexuality comes out, which paints a portrait of an era and an environment that the artist uses and reconstructs like an adventure.
Tom from Beijing delivers intimate confession of delicate moments
his childhood with tenderness and not without self-deprecation, features omnipresent throughout his work that are relayed here by his colorful illustrations.
