I am trying to get my hands on Enki Bilal's new book "Animal'Z" a comic book (BD) about a future where humans have finally done it: nature lost it's compas and everything is falling apart. Earth is having a big indigestion and the human race is the piece of rotten meat to be spat out. The ones who managed to survive (mostly the rich) try to find their way to a place that can sustain them. The drawings are done on grey paper in beautiful classic Bilal style. I love his work. I can see a lot of inspiring connections there with my work though, of course, he started many years before me and has been surely a notable influence on my Art. He is so unique in the world of visual arts.
