Dino Sechi with Tash and Trash
Best comics book artists: travelling the world is incredibly fun, but there is also a lot of work involved. Dealing with people who don’t speak your language, foreign currency, different cultures and sometimes, the lack of comforts that you would otherwise take for granted. Tash n Trash, a comic series details the conflict of the traveller with cute depictions of the left and right brain on a journey. How they struggle, how they enjoy each other’s company, how they lament and still solve the problems they have to face in strange yet exciting lands.
How it started
Dino Sechi takes us through how the comic came to be. Every joke slowly became enough to make a comic strip that talks about a situation and the mental response to it in a possibly hostile world. It helps the reader see the lighter side of a difficult travelling situation. Their childlike views on things and the seemingly stupid way they go about things open up a new way of seeing the world and the philosophy behind it.
What do the comics represent?
The best comic book artists always insist that their art means something to the reader on an intellectual and emotional level. With Tash n Trash, that inspiration lies in designing comics on human relations, human conflicts and love. The comics aim to give readers a more realistic perspective on travel, something that goes beyond conveniently taken photos and instagram stories. It puts together the arguments on a great adventure and how they have to be overcome.
History of the comic
Lapin et chat started nearly 10 years ago, but to give it a facelift, a new name was decided. Tash n Trash. The old name is still always there on the last page of the issue so that old readers can reflect on the past too. The comics are meant for light reading and just follows the story of these two adventurous characters in the form of a rabbit and a cat as they go about things in their foolish yet thoughtful ways. The comic aims to make people think about how they behave everyday, and how we can think more deeply even in our immediate situations.
Reading the comic
The comic comes out in the form of comic strips of a frightening journey with many close adventures that are seen in a humorous light despite the extremely thin lines between tragedy and success. Each strip has a message for its reader both light and happy as well as dark and tragic. These emotions are reflected through the innocent faces of Tash and Trash who are just trying to get past these stressful situations. They put their minds together, one logical and the other more emotional and intuitive, ending up being silly together on their adventures.
Join Tash and Trash on their adventures to find wholesome messages and some companionship on your travels.
