THE BOOK OF GEORGE


is Hardcomics latest project kindly finannced by the Romanian Cultural Institute through the 2010 Cantemir Programme, and distribuited for free at the Angoulême International Comics Festival this year. It's like the germ of an idea for a bad blockbuster:a film about the ultimate nobody. But who's George?At the begining nobody knew nothing about this illusive personage, and so Hardcomics got twenty artists to answer twenty questions that would help you understand George a little better. We were told that he's 30 years old and lives in Bucharest. Apart from that we knew nothing else, so each artist had to came up with his own version. Since mine was called "George gets hurt " I tried to find several reasons why George might feel hurt, but more like on a mental & emotional level. One thing leads to another and before you know it, Love,Religion,Science, Money and Death emerged as symptoms of hurt . So, my George it's some kind of Superego resulted from the identification process with the society values & beliefs. Guided by his strongest religious beliefs, and inoculated with the social & cultural rules he comes into conflict with his primordial insticts, causing him to develop blame and guilt. Slowly, the story developed into eight full-page illustrations and along with the others gaved content and meaning to the life of George.
