The very first comic adaptation of anything I’ve written was by Angie for the original Spera collaboration (here). Seeing something I had written filtered through the imagination of another — reconfigured with so much heart and attention to detail by someone in another part of the world — was a major revelation for me, a moving experience that made me realise this was the direction I wanted to head with all of my writing.
With this comic especially you’re seeing the imaginations of many: Afu’s designs for the main characters, Jen’s design for Lorem, Don Cocor’s design for the monster, Giannis’s design for the memory oracle, Meg’s throne design, all rendered in this intensely atmospheric dream world by Angie. Building and exploring impossible worlds with groups of incredible artists and good friends is the heart of collaborative comics, and the results never cease to give me that same thrill I had with Angie’s first comic.
Thanks to everyone for sticking with Glass Flowers for so long — the finale comes next!
The penultimate chapter of Glass Flowers is now online! This beautiful and haunting 5-page nightmare is illustrated by the brilliant Angie Hoffmeister, and you can read it all over at Spera-Comic.com.
13 years is a long time to wait. Never thought this day would come!

Spera: Making of a Comic Page
Watch us as we work on a comic page, from the first sketch to the color. Everything is made on paper using pencils, drawing gum and watercolor.
Feel free to ask if you have any question about the process.
The book is coming this fall. We can’t wait for it!
Cécile Brun and Olivier Pichard present an absolutely wonderful video that, through a close look at their process, will inspire you to create.
