DESCRIPTION:

“There are so many things that I love about Tibonom that continue to reveal themselves with repeated readings; the Charlie Brown motif on his cauldron, the inexplicable expressiveness of the featureless face of Lifeform and the beautiful, detailed pencil-shade and smudge drawings, littered with “incidental” ephemera that you can lose yourself in as you join this little being on his spiritual quest. Whoever thinks spiritual awakening can’t be fun and is all chanting and meditating in painful postures, may think differently after reading this book.” – Joe Ollman, from his introduction.

Featuring Tibonom in 20 wordless stories exploring spirituality in our modern age in a whimsical, fun, and playful approach that will delight both kids and adults.

Billy Mavreas is a major figure of the Montreal comics scene and co-director of Monastiraki, a gallery/boutique in the Mile End neighborhood. He is the author of two graphic novels, one book of posters and countless mini books, prints, zines, pamphlets and assorted ephemera.
