    The Black Book of Falling – a comic book exhibition by Peter Suart

This is Tik and Tok’s first adventure in strip cartoon format. On page one they find their way out of a black hole into a bewildering world where they fall from one predicament into another, meeting a cast of strange people and encountering perennial human problems ??? Where are we going? How should we live? How does violence arise? What does it all mean?

Suart has looked at many of the cartoon greats’ Tintin, Asterix, Calvin and Hobbes, the Moomins and Little Nemo in Slumberland’ and has used many of the standard devices of the language of cartooning: the speech and think bubble, the materialised noise, the half-face close-up, the fisheye lens view, the silhouette, multiple perspectives, the nimbus round the head to signify presence or surprise.

The exhibition comprises fifty-eight black and white pages of dip pen and Indian ink drawings.

Date: 16/3 (Fri) -15/4 (Sun)
Time: 10am-8pm
Venue: 4/F Pao Gallery, Hong Kong Arts Centre
Free admission

    The Illustrator and the Cartoonist – Talk by Peter Suart

Illustration and Strip Cartooning are distinct but related practices. Both are considered, spuriously, poor relations of Art. Peter Suart’s author, illustrator and Johnny-come-lately strip cartoonist will show slides of work by illustrators (Rackham, Dulac, Nielsen, Clarke), cartoonists (Herge, Uderzo, McCay, Watterson) and artists in the middle (Jansson, Beardsley, Heath Robinson). He will also look at his own Tik and Tok strip cartoon adventure The Black Book of Falling.

Date: 25/3 (Sun)
Time: 3pm-4:30pm
Venue: Agnes b. CINEMA
