Summer Reading: Daniel Ha
Our third summer reading list come from Daniel Ha, illustrator/cartoonist, part-time dentist, and a member of the AIIQ (Association des Illustrateurs et Illustratrice du Quebec).
Sequential: What is your latest project?
At the moment, I am working on 2 webcomics: "Casanovice" and "1 Page Stand." Casanovice is a comedic strip about the differences between guys and girls and about their relationships. I like to think of it as an anti-Sex and the City because it's from the male point-of-view but also because the guys in the strips are in their 20s and more of the gamer/slacker type than the late 30s and professional women of the hit show. 1 Page Stand is a 1 page comic about my observations and sometimes the place where I experiment or try to find something that expresses the truth about our lives (I said try).
What books you have recently read or are planning to read?
Kampung Boy by Lat
Path of the Assassin vol2 by Koike and Kojima
Chroniques Birmanes by Delisle
Les petits riens de Lewis Trondheim vol 1-2
Pink by Okazaki
Boule de Neige by various
Planning to reread:
The Arrival by Tan
and a collection by Chaboute
Planning to read:
a Paul Auster book I saw at the library yet haven't borrowed yet, all the books I can borrow about Vietnam (research purposes) and all the BDs I can borrow to limit the money I spend on comics. I also plan on finishing Path of the Assassin, 9 volumes of Swamp Thing and Berlin by Lutes.
Any upcoming events/upcoming publications? What is your next project?
I have a table reserved at Otakuthon to promote/sell my work (1st time). Then I'm going to be working on a proposal for Front Froid and after that something to show at this year's expozine. I will also be continuing my research about Vietnam (for a comic about vietnamese-canadians) and updating my site's comics section with new strips or some short stories.
