Alberto Breccia Footage

Alberto Breccia Footage

Whilst trawling through twitter I noticed a conversation between two British comic book artists, Dom Reardon and Jock. It concerned some video footage found of the late, great, Uruguayan born Argentine Alberto Breccia. alberto2

Breccia created many works in South America and for a brief period in Europe, at publishing houses such as Fleetway in Britain. In this rare footage of him you can see him at work on some inked pieces, at one point using what looks like a craft knife blade dipped in ink to draw lines. Albeit being poor quality (likely filmed in the 80’s), and his dialect or the subtitles not being in English it’s still worth a watch!

A link to the video is here!
