Hello, 600th comic!
Hello, 600th comic!
As I was working on my Patreon video, I found out that all the takes involving my daughter were hilarious and I couldn’t not use them. So I made an outtakes video and slipped some of my ugly faces in there, too, just for kicks. Enjoy!
(My Patreon campaign is right here you guys! Patrons already have access to cool stuff under the Creations tab!)
Well, after reading all your comments, I found out that two designs stood out — the sepia one and the natural colours one. Why not mix the two? Margot suddenly steals the spotlight even more, and I quite like the effect! Kinda like introducing a new character in a series, right?
The series that is my life
Haha. Thanks everybody!
Just a little signal boost to whomever’s interested in my comics — Boumeries volume 1, which I self-published in summer 2011, is going out of print! I only have 10 English copies of the book left (and also 14 French copies, most of which are coming with me to the comics festival in Quebec City tomorrow). This book won me my first comic award (the Expozine Award for Best French Comic 2011) and was also nominated for a Bédélys for Best Independent Comic the same year.
I AM NOT GOING TO PRINT VOLUME 1 EVER AGAIN. I’ve self-published at least one book every year since 2011 and that makes a lot of boxes to store in my own house. It was inevitable that one day I’d have to move on. So if you want it, you better act fast!
Alright, Internet, I still need your advice! I added colour to the Boumeries volume 4 cover and now I’m hesitating between a few options — either fully or partly monochromatic or just normal colours.
Which one catches your eye the most? Or which one would you buy?
Thanks everybody for your input! Most people voted for this one, and it was also my favourite, so you just made the choice clearer for me. I tweaked it a little so that the title wasn’t overlapping with any part of the drawing, and it looks much better now. Stay tuned for the final version in a couple days!
Internets, I need your advice! As you can see, I’m working on the Boumeries volume 4 cover and I’m hesitating between these two compositions. The idea is to go fairly monochrome with it and make it look like a music album cover. Any preference?
Cab is suggesting this version:
Ladies and gentlemen, readers of Boumeries, today is the launch of my very own Patreon page! As many of you may know, I am now a stay-at-home mom working on comics during my daughter’s nap times, and my income has been pretty null in the last year or so. If you like what I do, please consider sparing a few bucks every month to support my work and help pay the bills — your help might even allow me to go to American cons! That would be so awesome.
So please watch the video and head to my Patreon page if you’re interested! If you can’t contribute, please reblog so that as many people as possible see this. I need all the help I can get.
Thank you so much! You guys are rad.
Anonymous asked: I just wanted to let you know, I've started easing your comic from the beginning. It makes me happy, it reminds me of my favorite childhood comic Calvin and Hobbes. Thank you so much.
Oh geez, thank you! This is such a HUGE compliment, you have no idea.
So I felt compelled to draw a little something.
