Unboxing Marco D'Agostino

I was happy to attend the opening of Marco D'Agostino's exhibition in the ECC. Marco D'Agostino taught himself to draw and the result may be seen! I was not only surpised by his nice cartoons and caricatures, but this little box Marco maid especially for the exhibition in Kruishoutem drew my attention. It's not a cartoon book but a nice collection of about 16 prints of his work on high quality paper. In fact, if you frame them, you can hang or stall all this nice works in your room and enjoy the cartoons... or even better: start your day with a smile looking at them.
It's quite original and to me it's a collector's item. I don't think there are much copies made, so I'm one of the happy owners.


Pope Franciscus by Marco D'Agostino

One of the reasons to attend an opening of an exhibition in the ECC,  is that you can enjoy some beautiful moments. An example was the moment when Marco drew Hanzz (excellent Belgian caricaturist) and Hanzz drew Marco. They both liked each others work as you can see on the pictures below.

Marco D'Agostino and Hanzz

I'll end with a picture of Marco and Rudy Gheysens, followed, for the fans of Stromae, by a caricature Marco made of the world famous singer:

Paris - Roubaix

No rain for this year's edition of Paris-Roubaix... It makes me think at the outstanding sports cartoons by Roger Blachon (1941 - 2008). Enjoy some of his Paris-Roubaix cartoons.
