[indulging in extra-feedback poll, nearly 2 YEARS after first planting seeds of this, gah] GND#245, and a certain person's course of action....

Un éditeur aurait dit récemment : "les auteurs vont devoir trouver un second métier s'ils veulent survivre". Bon... Ok. Mais ce second métier, ce sera encore de la BD, ce sera en local, en auto-édition collective, selon un modèle alternatif, coopératif, solidaire. À Lyon nous tentons l'expérience, en commençant par un journal mensuel proposant des histoires lyonnaises racontées par des auteurs lyonnais. Puis nous passerons à d'autres projets, d'autres idées, d'autres publications. Nous voulons ici, en local, un outil d'édition qui réintègre l'auteur dans un tissu social de proximité, parce qu'on peut faire notre métier autrement qu'au travers de l'édition de masse à l'échelle nationale, voire internationale. C'est un pari, et si ça vous parle, n'hésitez pas à rejoindre ceux qui ont déjà choisi de nous soutenir.

et j'en suis !
La campage Ulule et des précisions sur le projet et notre démarche ici :

en plus d'une bande-annonce en vidéo, vous pouvez déjà lire l'intégralité du premier recit BD.

la couverture de mon numéro (ce sera le 02, au final - parution en juin 2015), sur la Reine des Tilleuls de la place Bellecour :
Rues de Lyon history comic - cover art by Pika-la-Cynique
Ce n'est pas dans ce style-là que j'ai fait mes planches, mais j'ai quand meme travaillé en tradi, pour changer, à l'encre sépia...

English information on Deviation linked above ^ We need help kickstarting a really cool self-publishing venture with a bunch of other Lyon-based artists. If your French is up to it, there's a nifty presentation video and the entire first issue digitally viewable on our fundraiser page. :)

Thanks for your time!

(PS. just FYI, the Austin meet-up plans fell through in the end, alas.)

You are brilliant

I just want to let you know that the only reason why I check on DA nowadays is to see if GND has been updated. You have taken over my life and I love everything about it! Keep up the good work!

I'm going to reward myself for finishing the second draft of my novel by rereading every single page of GND from the start. I have about 20 days to get there. (yes. I consider that an amazing reward).

Have you ever thought about drawing what Jareth and Sarah's kid or kids would look like? I can just imagine their HAIR...Finn Hair Whip

Spread the DA love around! (you can copy and paste this message on their userpage!)

1- You can hug the person who hugged you!
2- You -MUST- hug 10 other people, at least!
3- You should hug them in public! Paste it on their page!
4- Random hugs are perfectly okay! (and sweet)
5- You should most definitely get hugging right away!

If You Get 7 back You Are Loved!
1-3 you're bad friend
4-6 you're an okay friend
7-9 you're a good friend

To think, a couple hours ago I was completely unaware of your existence.

Now I have to spend the next God-knows-how-many hours reading every single GND.  Possibly twice.

I hope you're happy.  Grumpypuss

So how did you trip up on GND anyhoo?
YppleJax Featured By Owner May 1, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I think it was a "more like this" sidebar off of one of MaripazVillar's "Superstition" comics?  Not sure how dA made that leap, unless it was just "webcomic + period clothing"?  But both of your art and writing is super-cute, so there's that too.  ;P

Ahh. Someone fave-collecting both, or something. Welp, happy to entertain!
