On today's show we talk to Gabrielle Bell. Gabrielle is a comics
artist based in Brooklyn, whose books and short stories have been
published on a number of indie presses, from Drawn and Quarterly to
Fantagraphics, and in anthologies like Mome and
Kramer's Ergot. She also collaborated with filmmaker
Michel Gondry on an adaptation of her story "Cecil and Jordan in
New York" for the film anthology Tokyo. A few weeks ago,
Gabrielle came over to the Manhattan Wrestling Team apartment and
got in deep with us about what it means to be creative and interact
with your audience, characters as representatives of your sweet id,
and creative high school friendships.
On next week's episode, we talk to performer and author Chris Gethard, but ALSO! Don't forget the next Beginnings Live at UCB East. It's going to be incredible with Lizz Winstead (co-creator of The Daily Show and Air America Radio), David Rees (Get Your War On, How to Sharpen Pencils), and musical guest A.C. Newman (The New Pornographers)! Sept. 11th at 8pm!
