i've received my schedule for this weekend's Le Salon de Livre de l'Outaouais: Rendez-vous International de la BD de Gatineau but first a sneak peak at one of the new images in progress for the mysterius trade:

now the schedule:

This is optional but we’d be delighted if you could join us!

most of my signing will be with my friend eric gauthier, who wrote "feu blanc" and "terre des pidgeons" (illustrated by moi) which i've posted about previously.

the "live drawings" are on stage interviews with the artists as they... well, draw live.

other guests this year include: christophe bertschy, nicolas boucher, francis desharnais, christian durieux, lynn johnston, loustal, louis-philippe morin, gabriel morrissette, myriam roy, ronn sutton, lewis trondheim, daniel shelton, as well as some special appearances by others.

the whole thing starts friday at the museum of civilization and is all kinds of free.

Yeah...I like seeing this in progress stuff. Very cool, man.

And yes I'm a big fat wet pussy for not diving into the watercolor paper that you recommended and I bought.

sigh...I've just been working in oil as of late and doing a rewrite of another graphic novel.

But you inspired none-the-less. :)

hey, i didn't say a word...

i happen to like big fat wet... er, i don't think i want this to become that kind of blog...

and as someone who's never managed to get anything more out of oils than a massive headache, my hat's off to you.
