We are sharing a workshop space called Artistic Activities in Stockholm

Vad gör ni för serier och hur började det?

Nicolas Maurice: My practice always starts with writing, recording moments, remembering them, putting in words the very personal experience in the hope of reaching something common, creating a dialogue with images, captured or synthesized. And then crafting a physical object. Zines are a perfect playground for this process..
Thomas Oger: I started to create one pager's illustration for my son's bedroom and slowly built up longer stories and formats. After working on short zine/graphic novels I'm now working on a longer format with sequential panels. 

Vad kommer ni sälja på Malmö Seriefest?

Nicolas Maurice: I'll be selling a collection of zines made from receipt prints and photographs, containing short writing pieces in both French and English, family stories, memories of places and poems
Thomas Oger: I will be selling a range of work from postcards to small zines. 

Vilka tips vill ni ge till någon som vill börja göra serier och fanzin?

Nicolas Maurice: Be playful, find out what you'd make if you were to make something, then don't stop until you can hold it in your hands.
Thomas Oger: Don't hesitate to try and release. Try to create a zine (A4 folder or a couple of pages) from A to Z. I think doing all the steps makes you understand what you like about the formats and find your own identity in colors, binding, format etc.
