Swiss comics artist and illustrator Thomas Ott is famous for his scratchboards: he creates images on cardboards by scratching off dark ink to reveal a white layer beneath. One of his most significant works, The Number 73304-23-4153-6-96-8, was first published in Russia this year by BOOMKNIGA.
Thomas Ott will present his comic book and give a lecture entitled The Art of a Wordless Graphic Story at both St. Petersburg-based Institut Français and International Festival of Book Illustration “Morse” in Moscow.
