Archie Bongiovanni, Minneapolis based cartoonist and illustrator discusses their latest book, Mimosa, and the challenges of portraying the lives of queer people as well as the challenges for artists working on comic books.
Exploring the messy and realistic highs and lows of queer friendship, Mimosa tells the story of a group of queer 30-somethings searching for purpose in their lives. Archie delivers this healthy dose of reality with their saucy attitude and humour.
Join them for an hour-long conversation with Archie as they explain the process of portraying the lives of queer people as well as delving into the difficulties faced by comic writers and getting funding compared to traditional forms of writing.
