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!
