Angouleme 2013 • Swarte

This is a blues original written by the multi-talented cartoonist and crooner, Joost Swarte (along with his pals), and stuck in the middle of his lecture on February 2, 2013 in Angouleme.

Did I say multi-talented? Mr. Swarte has designed stained glass installations, movie houses, and the Herge Museum (which, in Angouleme, is like designing God's patio). Now he has designed eye-wear (what we used to call glasses). It is hard to see in this photo but inlayed into the corner of the frames are a set of quotation marks, thus giving the viewer, according to Mr. Swarte, an ironic world view.
