Aiming for the Gut (AFTG)
AIMING FOR THE GUT is a black humor text-and-image collaboration between poet Jean-Sébastien Larouche and illustrator Mivil Deschênes.The work is derived sequentially, with one artist sending the other one texts or images without explanation. The results are sexy, terrifying, and hilarious, all at once. AFTG is unapologetically written in French-Canadian broken English and Québécois slang. Their creations evokes the graphic punk ethos of Raymond Pettibon while satirizing the most contemporary of subject matter.
New artworks are frequently published on their website at www.aimingforthegut.com. A/F/T/G, a compilation of their works, was published by l'OIE DE CRAVAN in 2013.
