Kagan “infinite Kung Fu” McLeod writes to tell of a cool video project he put together at this year’s TCAF: a collaborative drawing vdeo starring McLeod, Paul Pope, David B, Sam Hiti, and Frederik Peeters. He writes:

Between 1969 and 1975 the French television broadcast Tac Au Tac (Tit for Tat in english) assembled cartoonists from Europe and the Americas to cooperate in improvised drawing. The 10-15 minute episodes aired in-between programing and planted the seed for a whole generation to make their own comics.  While many of the nostalgic videos can be found today on youtube, a contemporary answer to the series was lacking.

This year, during the Toronto Comics and Art Festival (TCAF), five cartoonist came together to revive the idea. A spread of cheese, crackers, wine, ink, and brushes were set before five artists. Five collaborative drawings were done that night and captured upon video at Kagan McLeod’s Toronto studio. One segment has been edited (link below) with more in the works for release in the months leading up to TCAF 2014.

    I found out about this show back when Joe Kubert passed away. Pretty cool seeing all these comics talents back in their prime coming together for the comics equivalent of a jam session.

    The weird honk and beep soundtrack on the old show was pretty dumb, though. Guess that was avant garde in France back then.

Speak Your Mind
