Bikes, Babes, Happy Days

bonjour babies

I actually did a quick diary comic!  I never do those anymore… oh well.

So last week my bike was stolen, and I found out by gettin all ready to run errands and then BAM not there. i. was. furious.

Its totally true – I would have ripped into ANYBODY that day, even if they just looked at me funny.

The good news is I found a lovely new peugeot bike this week – i still miss my old bike (aka Miss St.-Clair)  but my new lil lady (aka Margot Marguerite) has already taken me to some beautiful places.

 

 

BIKES

New Diary Comic about SAD TIME! WHAT A SURPRISE!

It’s been a while since I did a for realz Diary Comic and today when I went to grab coffee and sit and draw one… i realized i forgot my pencil box!  I borrowed a ball-point pen and drew a whole comic without erasing for the first time – I am actually pretty proud!  This comic is my first AS IS comic, no erasing, no white out and the only photo shop is the coloring.  It doesn’t look anything like what I normally do, but I hope ya’ll will enjoy it!

Some notes about this particular comic…

I have this program where you get an email that tells you what happened on that day on Facebook a year ago, and this week was when I first heard this song.  All of us remember, there are over 300 MILLION views on Youtube, and maybe we loved it so much because it was so unfortunately realistic.

I normally wouldn’t put so many words in a comic, but I needed to say it – I’ve always wanted to say it.  And maybe some of you who know me are thinking “OMG WHY IS SHE STILL TALKING ABOUT THIS IT WAS A YEAR AGO” well… sorry, but it happened and  it was rough and hard and it’s a part of me now, and probably always will be.

I like writing about real things and real things aren’t always good, and most things don’t work out, and that’s ok!  We all have dark times but it gets sunny again :)

 

I love you all!  <3

 

 

 

 

Gee Im Glad It’s Raining

I have a couple of back-logged diary comics, so I’m going to try to update twice a week for now and when I catch up it will be once a week.  We’ll see  how long that lasts.

So… just so we’re clear and there are no surprises, there’s quite a list of sad-sack comics ahead.

Sorry bros.

i tried to do this one in the style of Julie Delporte.  I love how beautiful and  emotional she makes her moments look, like these:

Speaking of Julie – she has completed her fellowship at CCS and is now back in Quebec.  I am sad because I miss her but i look forward to visiting her in Montreal!
