In this artist's statement, originally written for a keynote lecture given at the American Bande Dessinée Society conference held at Miami University (Oxford, Ohio) on 3 November 2012, Clément Baloup recounts his artistic trajectory through comics, moving from his experience as a comics reader to his art work as a professional cartoonist. He speaks about other cartoonists who influenced his work, ranging from Baru to Baudoin, Mazzuchelli to Miller, and Sacco to Spiegelman. He then describes three aspects of his comics about the Vietnamese and their history: the stories that he has created, his research and writing process, and the cartooning techniques involved in making each book.
