Potential Patreon Partners

   To my fantastic fans,

    You’re invited to step aboard my Patreon galleon
     and sail to new uncharted territories!

I came to Patreon  at first to support my fellow artists friends. And I am still supporting them via this fantastic system.

But now a flurry of new projects are claiming for existence:

  1. Windmistress, YA SF, 43 finished pages on 50.
  2. Honor Road, manga, 200 pages, 22 finished
  3. Joys of the Signing Table, 100 gags published on my blog, meaning a 250-page album in manga format. I need at least thirty hours to convert the graphic files to the publication format.

I am currently working on two SF novels ( Azuras and Grasshoppers), and planning for more.

Your kind support on Patreon will make a difference for my writing and drawing fiction, especially as I write in both English and French. It will allow me to hire help for translation and design, and to get the formation I need to hone my craft. Because I am always learning.

It will make a difference for you, as your pledge will reap rewards: free reading, behind-the-scene sketches, ex-libris, ebooks…

The slope ahead

Here’s an overview of the works in progress and deadlines, for the edification of my fantastic fans.

Comics

Caricatures

– this one illustrating this column, the first done since the departure of my father. Note that the nature of the land on which the artist threads changes fast. Hence the slope in the title, as in a learning slope.

-One caricature done at the beginning of 2015, in support of Charlie Hebdo.

The promised project that drags its feet:

The trees – which has not gone too far! since the 24-24 when I began it!  It will be 22 pages… Tsssk, tsssk, tsssk!
