Have you always been a book enthusiast, mister roman? What were your favourite books as a youngster (and what are your favourites now, I suppose.)? Fantastic art, by the way. I admire you a lot as a person.
Not really, I’m ashamed to admit I only learned to appreciate literature in my mid-twenties. As a pretentious teenager, I liked Camus, Murakami, Dostoevsky and all that usual stuff. The turning point was Alfred Jarry’s “Days & Nights,” I think. Right now my favorites are Queneau’s “Last Days,” Perec’s “Life A User’s Manual,” Ford Madox Ford’s “The Good Soldier,” Joris-Karl Huysmans’s “With the Flow,” Proust & Joyce of course. Recently I read “The High Life” by Jean-Pierre Martinet (entirely in a bookstore (yep, I’m that cheap)), a charming little book. I’m also slowly discovering Lemony Snicket at last. For further stalking I can direct you to my goodreads account. And thanks! I’m a pretty awful person though, that’s a fact.

I love your work! What influences your comics the most?
Books mainly, sometimes other comics. Anything except ‘real life’ or ‘current events’ or ‘friends.’
Would you be against anyone getting a tattoo of your work?
Couldn’t care less. Send me a picture though, particularly if it’s a tramp stamp.
