    Bonjour !
    I’ve fallen in love with your work, subjects and approach, really.
    If you ever need a classic but crazy graphic designer for anything, it would be such an honor, a pleasure for me to work with you.
    I suppose your french is better than my english. Avez-vous déjà travaillé en édition ? À l’illustration de romans graphiques ou de BD ? Êtes-vous basé au Québec ?
    Quelle belle découverte, en tout cas. Merci d’être si généreux.

      Oh, I just read you were Montréal based. Nice. I’ll send your site to some publishers I know. Something has to be done with this treasure.


  2. Thanks! I do feel very close to him in some ways, but I guess many people who have read his poetry do. He represents the naive, idealistic, somewhat self-centred romantic adolescent in all of us (or most of us).

      Good day, I am still in awe with this lovely cameo. I am wondering if it was possible to ask for your professional contribution when I polish the work on Emile that I have been writing. You seem to be travelling a lot, I just read about your project of the imaginary city: do you draw only for pleasure, are there exhibits of your work?


      • Hi Diane, I’m happy that you like it, and I’d be very interested in hearing about the professional collaboration you have in mind. Send me an e-mail at, and we can talk more. Other than my self-published zines, my only available published work is in The Graphic Canon (Seven Stories Press), vols. 1 & 2, but there’s none of my Emile stuff in there.

    Dear Sir, Have you know him? Have you seen him? He just seems so real through your drawings.
    Thank you.
