Paul Pope, July 2008:

I’ve got this ongoing thing [called Psychenaut] that it looks like Dargaud is going to publish in French, and I’m sure that we can find someone here. It’s reacting to the body of work that Rick Veitch and Winsor McKay have done in dreams. I know that other people have done some–David B.’s done some. There’s an interesting…I guess you have to call it a sub-narrative to dreams. I find that I have repetitive imagery in my dreams. That’s the thing. I just do these for myself. I was in Spain with Yves Schlirf, my editor for Dargaud, and was like, “Oh, check these out.” He was like, “These are great. Let’s publish them.” So I have 20 or 25 of them, and there’s really no rush on this. It’s just when I get the time and the interest on getting the next one down. When we get enough, we’ll publish it.

The initial image is quoted by Pope as the frontispiece for Psychenaut (at the foot of the comments on the flickr page). Other images here are from pulphope.blogspot.com, from Superpouvoir, and from a long interview carried out by Sean T. Collins in July 2008 (from which the above quote is taken) and included in full here: read it by clicking on the image below:
