Growing Up ft. Halfdan Pisket (#55)

This week we talk with the talented graphic novelist Halfdan Pisket. He is two-thirds of the way through his trilogy of books about his father, and joins us to talk about the long road leading to this point. His second book, Kakerlak, just came out, and has been garnering critical interest here in Denmark. We have a mature discussion about the choice to grow up and about both learning and not learning about oneself through making work. Join us and hear about hard work, changing opinions about our parents and about shifting our perception of time through making art.

Some selections from Halfdan's books:
