I meant to write about this the other day, but never got around to it. The world’s most famous art museum, home to the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo among many others, has added an exhibition featuring comics for the first time in it’s history.
The featured cartoonist is Bernar Yslaire, with his comic strip “The Sky above the Louvre”. He is one of the increasing number of cartoonists who do everything digitally. “My comic strip is done exclusively on a digital screen – there is no paper at all”, he says. “We are in the 21st century of communication.”
