Join artist and writer Lise Myhre, creator of the wonderfully funny series about the cool, romantic, strong-willed, cynical, sexy and all-too-honest Nemi Montoya, for a signing event at the Norwegian booth (#101-108) at MoCCA Art Festival 2009, June 6-7, 2009, The Lexington Avenue Armory (between 25th & 26th Streets), New York City.
Created when Myhre “set out to find an imaginary friend” and named after Italy’s ancient (and supposedly enchanted) Lake Nemi and fictional hero Inigo Montoya of The Princess Bride (one of Myhre’s favorite films), Lise Myhre’s Nemi Montoya is a goth-tinged heroine for the modern twenty-something, tapping into all the fun, fervor and frustrations of the 21st Century woman. Already a national star in her native Norway, she and her look-alike creation, Nemi, are renowned throughout Europe and have now launched in the USA. Nemi’s first volume has reprinted multiple times, and the strip continues to appear daily across Europe.
