Well, maybe the mainstream publishers aren’t the right venue anyway. Keep promoting your work as I’m sure some right-minded publisher will see the excellence in your stuff. But do make sure you send copies to Harvey Pekar. He always needs artists for his AMERICAN SPLENDOR comics series and I suspect you’re perfect for his work… [...]

Ron Turner, Publisher last gasp

Just had a look.  I have been kicking around a bunch of ideas with frieds of Bukowski for years. About a comic book of some of the stories that the artists or writers had with the master. Some of the people were George DiCaprio (father of Leonardo) and Spain Rodriguez (zap comix), who had wonderful [...]

Bukowski meets Strzelecki A brilliant combination of drawings and literature. Absolutely worth a visit, this brandnew and growing website of artist Caryl Strzelecki, featuring a unique combination of the poetry of Charles Bukowski and the illustrations of Strzelecki. Don’t miss it!

Dominique Deruddere, film director:

Yes, I’ve got your drawings, but I have been abroad and there wasn’t any time to look at them.
I did that right now and it looks very good.

Eveline van Dijck, documentary maker:

“Amazing that you got permission to do your thing with Bukowski’s work. I wonder how the publisher will react. And yes, it’s rough work and intrigueing. It’s life itself.  Perhaps that’s why you, because of this and your own experiences, are so fit for this job. Thank you for sharing this with me, I like [...]

Leander Hanssen, writer:

“Thanks a lot for your drawings. These are wonderful things, things to cherish and to hang on a wall and to reread every so many days… Poems become very different in the framework of these drawings. It takes more time to read them.  Words and images interact, and they create new ideas. “Roll the dice” [...]

Herman Brusselmans, writer:

“Being an admirer as well of Charles Bukowski as of Caryl Stzelecki, I’m pleasantly surprised to see what happens when the two of them combine. It’s a pity Charles Bukowski has died, but Strzelecki is alive and well, and seems in every way the proper man to give Charles Bukowski the temporary immortality he deserves. [...]
