Bendik Kaltenborn Interview and Book Giveaway

bendik_med-2

You’ve probably seen Bendik Kaltenborn’s work in places like The New Yorker or Todd Terje’s album covers. Or perhaps you’re already an avid fan of his shenanigans with the Dongery comic collective. Either way you should be excited to know that Kaltenborn’s latest collection of random gags and comics, Adult Contemporary, is now available in English. Thanks to Drawn & Quarterly we have a copy to give away!

Kaltenborn was also nice enough to answer some questions about his process, the things he hates and those that keep him happy. Read the full interview below. And, in the spirit of the book’s title (inspired by the term for cheesy, ballad-heavy easy listening) leave your favourite dad joke in the comments section for your chance to win!

Booooooom Reader Submissions: January

january-submissions-600

This is an OPEN CALL for you art and photography! I discovered so many amazing artists this past year in our monthly reader submissions posts. Just a reminder that this is not only a chance to share your work but to compliment and build up others in this community – they’re all your peers!

Not everything submitted will be featured, but keep in mind these posts often get well over 1,000 comments so you can imagine the amount of people who will see your work here. You have the ability to vote up work you see in here, it does help me to see the kind of work that the readers are really feeling.

Excited to see what you all share this month and all this year!

 

Submission Guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
