The new oversized issue of l’Étiquette is out & I have a full-color quarter-page alongside the likes of Michael Deforge, Julie Doucet, Audrey Malo, Wooden Cyclops, Tristan Wright, & many, many others!
Simon Bosse puts this anthology series out in collaboration with Dunham Brewery where he works & they’re a joy to behold! Free 17 x 22 inch paper with 16 full color pages of art inspired by beer at participating venues! It hasn’t been fully distributed yet, but as of now they’re available in Montreal at Vices & Versa, Cheval Blanc, & Pub Pit Caribou! Or you can order it for a buck thru Simon’s Mille Putois site HERE
Oh, it feels good to be back in newsprint! I miss the days when I was drawing for free weekly The Montreal Mirror (14 years with a circulation of 70,000) & I would occasionally accidentally step on my own comics on the street after people discarded their copies. Recently I started uncomfortably throwing my own art away too, after Dunham Brewery gave me a complimentary case of their Pale Ale Américaine beer that I designed the cans for! Chucking my empties in the garbage took some getting used to until I remembered how much I LIKE MAKING DISPOSABLE ART!
Pictured above: The original digitally created art I handed in to Simon, & pictured below; a scan of the actual GLORIOUS DISPOSABLE NEWSPRINT VERSION! Original art NOT available because I only do shit digitally now! Sigh. What a world.
