Behind The Panels One-Shot – The J.P. Kalonji Interview

Behind-the-Panels-One-Shot-Kalonji-1440x1440This week, Richard had the opportunity to chat with J.P. Kalonji, who is about to release the graphic novel Ningen’s Nightmares, a follow-up to his 2009 breakthrough release for Dark Horse, 365 Samurai and a Few Bowls of Rice.

J.P. Kalonji is an artist based in Geneva, Switzerland. He began his professional career in 1992 when he produced his first album Street Nation for the European market, and has worked with a variety of publishers and artists, including album art for Wyclef Jean. He is the co-founder of NethoProd, through which Kalonji published Street Nation II (2009) and the autobiographical Happy Days (2010). 365 Samurai… was his first English-language release.

We need to thank JP for generously giving us his  time, and we hope to chat more as his career continues.

You can find more of J.P.’s work at his portfolio he keeps over on KalonjiArt.com, as well as a blog at KalonjiArt.blogspot.com.

Ningen’s Nightmares is released by Dark Horse on 24 April 2013.
