2015-2017 : I’ve done a lot in this time, both solo and collaborative. We Shall Sing Our Wednesdays with J.F. Martel, an illustrated poem collage work, a call to art, if you will, published in Experiment-O #09, by Angel House Press of Ottawa. Go Ottawa!! More recently, my short bande dessinée solo effort, Arboros, in PLANCHES magazine no.10 out of Montreal, told of a strange yet uplifting post-apocalyptic story about the evolution of humanity. But I think the biggest hit might have been my Dominion Jack : Mob Mentality collaboration with Jack Briglio for True Patriot Presents in numbers 02, 03 and 04, published by Toronto’s Chapterhouse Publishing, which Mirror Comics Studios reissued in print as Dominion Jack #0 at Ottawa Comiccon 2017, with their blessings. It was cool to sign at Jack’s table each afternoon. Thanks so much for stopping by!!! I also created images for a fundraising campaign by l’Assemblée de la francophonie de l’Ontario, which you should really check out, about La défense des droits franco-ontariens. It’s cool. I had fun doing that. In fact I had fun doing all of these projects!!!
All the while I worked on developing and finding a home for my saga, which will get a proper official internet launch soon. The future is bright!!!
I want to thank you for your support for this new shape of Mirror Comics, your patience as short works trickled out, while sticking with me as the promise of big works on the horizon keep appearing as rumors, and especially for your eyes on both my French and English language works in Canada.
Stand by for news on releases, and enjoy your summer. Be sure to check back in the fall, it’s going to be amazing. Wait… for… it….
