Le chemin du retour...

Ça fait du bien de rentrer au pays quand même! (Libre à vous de décider dans quelle direction.) Merci à ceux et celles qui m'ont accueillie quelques jours à Lyon, payé des coups à boire et sponsorisé des pétages de bide.

* It does a person good to go home from time to time! (You get to choose in which direction that might be.) Thanks to everyone who housed me for a few days in Lyon, bought me drinks and sponsored my food comas.

Fact vs. Fiction

Good news! There are actually many things one can do about the world being a bad place sometimes, even if feelings of helplessness won't tell you that.

Very specifically, if you live in Berlin, Finding Berlin has a good list (in English!) of ways to help refugees currently seeking asylum in our city. It may feel daunting, or it may not seem like much, but a little goes a very long way.

I myself am currently in France, where it is a pleasant not-above-27 degrees, and will catch you all on the flipside (i.e. next week).

Home vs. Office

It's too hot! Hot dang! Call the police and the etc.

I'm going to go continue melting in France for a bit later this week. Stay cool!

This month my $5+ patrons are getting their monthly postcard sent to them from Lyon! If you would also like to get a postcard from Lyon, or if you would like to commission some art, you can donate to the Traveling Tip Jar. (I've been doodling Tom Hardy lately, for instance, if that is your thing.)

English translation below.

I had the pleasure this year of meeting the folks behind the Franco-German comic zine BETON during their issue #2 launch (part of the Comic Invasion Berlin 2015 satellite events). As a result, I also had the pleasure of contributing this two-page story to their new issue, which came out this month!

BETON comes out about three times a year; each issue has its own word as a theme, and the comics are printed in both French and German. For the good of my English-speaking public, I have included a translation of my entry below the cut.

This comic is reproduced here with kind permission; you can get your hands on the whole 56-page deal for 7€ + shipping by e-mailing betonfanzine at gmail. You can also check out their Facebook page and follow them on Tumblr!

If you like this comic and would like to see more like it, you can also support me on Patreon!

The cycle

You can tell I penciled this last winter, because it's too muggy these days to wear long sleeves in public transit.


Speaking of bridges, I was interviewed recently by Odile for Die Berliner Portraits and it partly involved that bridge on the bottom left! The transcript is exclusively in German, I'm afraid, but you get to see a great photo of me in front of the Oberbaumbrücke, which is one of my favorite locations in Berlin.

Also, it's Bastille day, so: happy 14th of July. I am spending it at a) the hair salon b) band practice c) a bar d) all of the above.

Friday Sketchpost: Berlin Pride + Fanart!

Every month for the past few months now I've been putting together pages from my sketchbooks in a PDF and posting it on PatreonThis forces me to draw more in my sketchbook, which has been priceless in terms of improving anatomy and inking skills (especially with the Pentel pocket brush pen, which I have grown more attached to the further I get used to it).

I've fallen off the wagon in terms of posting occasional scanned pages on this blog, though, so here are some sketches of people I did during Berlin's Pride week last month, as well as fanart of recent entertainment interests Breaking Bad (currently on season 4) and Spider-Gwen (which kicks so much heinie)!

You can also see these and many more in my latest digital sketchbook, which is available for pledges of $8 or more per week on Patreon!
