London-based comic artist and author Tom Gauld is well known for his work with The New Yorker, The Believer, The New York Times and, of course, The Guardian for which he’s been regularly contributing comic strips since 2005. We featured him on our site just last year for his graphic novel Mooncop (2016) and he’s already back with another book!
Like his 2013 collection You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack, Tom’s latest is a delightful collection of recent work. Filled with clever references and humorous observations, all told in his usual timeless style, Baking with Kafka offers something both refreshingly new and comfortingly familiar.
With the book’s release this week we caught up with Tom once again and got him to share some tricks of the trade as well as his personal book/indie comic recommendations. Check out our full interview and images from Baking with Kafka below!
