Georges Clarenko & Nikola Akileus

Georges Clarenko
Nikola Akileus

Can you show us a picture that had a big influence on you?

Georges: A single image, impossible. Or rather an image that is the sum of thousands. Some influences among them: Schizophrenia, Bug, Shin Godzilla, Lovecraft.

Nikola: a comic book extract, of SF obedience and rather dark. Fragment of the exile of a fallen pontiff, in the midst of a mystical crisis, soon a hallucinated prophet of a disintegration of reality.

What are your plans for GRYYYM?

Georges : Gryyym is for me the opportunity to take up our project of creating a universe with the scriptwriter and author Nikola Akileus. Comics being the perfect medium to concretize the symbiosis of our creations.

Nikola: Images born of texts. Original influences: the horrific soil of King & Lovecraft, enriched with a good dose of Frank Herbert (Dune of course – historic canal, but also the sacrificial AI-deity of the Consciousness Program, the Dosadi experience) and Dan Simmons (the Hyperion: his tesla trees, his impaler demon, to name but a few).

Franck Biancarelli’s self-portrait

Can you show us a picture that had a big influence on you?

I am more facinated by images that give me the feeling of being possible. So certainly, like many, I was marked at a very young age by some images of Wrightson but in the end, much more by some of Ditko’s and of course Alex Toth’s (my hero).

What are your plans for GRYYYM?

I drew hard images in the past but for the moment, until when I don’t know, I am very interested in producing images that each taken separately could be described as quite charming but can cause a feeling of unease when these are put together. So the objective is there: To produce a form of beauty, normality, poetry, elegance but which in the end leaves a strange aftertaste.

Can you show us a picture from your work which has a special meaning for you?

What interests me more than expressing a very strong point of view is to take a step to the side. Like a little dysfunction. Here, for example, I like this image because it seems to me (I hope I’m right) that the dramaticized point of view it produces is rarely seen. We are both diving in the shelter of the battle, but at the same time too close to really take the measure and we only see fragments of it. It seems to me that the point of view and what is shown contradict each other and cause a form of confusion, which was my objective because I think the state of confusion is predominant in a hand-to-hand battle (I hope it is at least a little true if not all this explanation is perfectly ridiculous, ha).

Can you show us a picture that had a big influence on you?

More than an image, a character: Pinhead in Hellraiser, based on Clive Barker’s story: “Slaves of Hell”.

What are your plans for GRYYYM?

For Gryyym, I propose a short story about freedom with an esoteric key, during the Second World War.

Can you show us a picture from your work which has a special meaning for you?

My previous work “Like an insect”, published by Hollow Press, is an horror graphic novel but also intimist that deals with the theme of intimidation.
