You've probably noticed I have been very inactive here! Well, I guess I moved on. dA was a thing in the early 2000s for me, now I'm all about other social media. Find me on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram even!

I hope to see you there!

Some much overdue news!

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 23, 2013, 10:39 AM


Hey everyone! Wow, I'm so sorry I haven't updated here in a while. I haven't exactly drawn anything else than comics lately, and I upload all those here or on my Tumblr. The truth is, my routine has been all out of whack recently for one good reason: I'm pregnant! The baby should be coming in May, so it's coming pretty soon! Crazy thing.

So yeah. Don't expect much activity from me, but just know I'm still lurking. ;)

I'm still here!

Just wanted to say that although I've been pretty quiet here, I still check dA everyday. I don't have a lot of finished pieces to post these days because I'm working full-time on my graphic novel. I update my Tumblr with previews and stuff, so head there in the meantime!

COMMISSIONS!

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 4, 2012, 2:09 PM


Hi folks! As some of you may know, I'm going through financial hardships at the moment — to put it shortly, freelancing hasn't been very nice to me for the past few months and all the contracts I'd been promised were cancelled at the last minute. I'm doing whatever I can to find more freelancing opportunities, and if the situation hasn't improved in February, I'll give up freelancing and look for steady jobs, hoping I can find one... :C

Anyway, in the meantime, I'd like to put my drawing skills to good use and take commissions! I'm pretty versatile and besides, I need the practice. Please consider encouraging me with one of the following options!

:star: A. Cartoony version of one character in greyscale: $10 CAD
Drawn in my Boumeries style and digitally shaded. (Doesn't have to be wearing a potato suit...)
Example: Potato. by boum

:star: B. Sketch of one character + grey shading: $20 CAD
Sketched on paper (my sketches are usually very clean), scanned and digitally shaded.
Examples: Jeanne by boum B O R G N E by boum

:star: C. Cartoony version of one character in greyscale + patterned background: $30 CAD
Drawn on 6"x9" bristol cardboard in my Boumeries style and coloured with grey markers and brush pens. I then send you the original!
Example: BLASTAAAAAAAAR by boum

:star: D. Cartoony version of one character + digital colours: $40 CAD
Inked traditionally or digitally and colours applied digitally.
Examples: The Nutcracker by boum boumID 20 by boum

:star: E. One character digitally inked + coloured: $80 CAD
With a filler in the background.
Examples: Katt by boum Human by boum

:star: F. One character digitally inked + no outlines: $100 CAD
With a simple background.
Example: Impa by boum

:star: G. Cartoony, kids-style traditional painting: $120 CAD
Drawn on 6"x9" bristol cardboard, inked, coloured with Ecoline ink, colouring pencils and poster paint. I then send you the original!
Examples: Ballet Puzzle by boum Bear Snooze by boum Flower Shower by boum

:star: H. One character in a scene + digital colours: $150 CAD
Backgrounds are semi-detailed. I like the character to be in the spotlight!
Examples: Three-Room Flat by boum Luscious Life by boum Molten Light by boum

:star::star::star:Payments accepted through Paypal only.:star::star::star:

For illustrations of more than one character, we'll have to discuss things together.  If you're interested, please note me with your email or send an email directly to boum@boumerie.com with your choice of illustration and all the information needed, and once we've settled on a price I will invoice you personally through Paypal. I've had bad experiences in the past so I'm going to ask you to pay upfront and not after the work is done, I'm sorry. I will get the work done. I am a professional artist, after all.
If those are too pricey for you or nothing interests you but you still want to encourage me, remember that I have a comic book for sale at approximately $10 and original comics to give away in exchange for donations of $5 or more. If anything, please spread the word! I appreciate all the help I can get :heart:

THANK YOU SO MUCH PEOPLE :heart:

Daily Deviation + Boxing Week Sale!

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 26, 2011, 8:39 AM


First off — a HUGE thank you to ditto9 for the Daily Deviation I got on December 24th! I feel especially privileged that it was on Christmas Eve, a fitting day for my film's mood and a nice Christmas gift to myself! Also, I'm very grateful for all the favourites and comments and watches... I wish I could reply to everyone individually but there was just so many of you! Please accept my thanks in this journal :heart:

I also wanted to update here to say I'm doing a Boumeries Boxing Week Sale — 20% off my first comic book if you buy it online, until January 2nd! Most of you should be familiar with my webcomic, but I got many new watchers during the weekend, so I invite you to check out my tri-weekly webcomic Boumeries! It's a labour of love, really.

Thanks!

I need your help.

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 18, 2011, 10:00 AM


You guys, I have something to ask you and I don't really like asking it, but here goes: I'm in a very huge down money-wise right now. I was supposed to be working on a big contract in October, which got pushed to November, which then got cancelled. I had other work opportunities which also got nuked before I could even start. I've already spent long hours spanned on multiple days trying to find work, but freelance work isn't the easiest thing to find. Bottom line is, I am very, very broke.

What I'm saying is this: if you enjoy my webcomic Boumeries, if you've been enjoying it for a while, please consider donating by clicking on the yellow "Donate" button on the right of the site. For any donation of $5 CAD or more, I'll send you an original Boumeries comic! I do all of the comics on paper with a brush pen (and not directly on the computer like some might think). There's a photo to show you what they look like (the text is missing on the photo, but all comics do have text) if you click the link.

I'm not asking for much — $5 is not a lot, but every little bit helps. I have almost 200 strips to give away like that. If you want one in particular, be sure to mention its title in the special instructions when donating. Oh, and don't forget to give me your address so that I can send the comic your way!

The other way you could encourage me is by buying the Boumeries book. I've put a lot of time and money in this, it's truly a labour of love.

Please spare a few bucks for a struggling artist! If you can't, please help by spreading the word. I'm grateful for any kind of support I can get. Thank you so much! :heart:

[EDIT]

This has been OVERWHELMING. You people are amazingly generous, kind, and loving. I can't believe the support I got. Thank you so, so much everyone. :heart:

TUMBLR POWR

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 11, 2011, 2:20 PM


Hey you guys! Just a quick word to tell you that I now have a Tumblr account. I'm using it to post doodles and sketches and whatnot, which means that I probably won't be uploading any more scraps here (scraps are so underrated). I will keep posting finished work here though, so don't worry :)

Please add me if you have an account too!

For those who don't know, Boumeries is an autobiographical comic strip I've been doing since last February. It should make you giggle (I hope!)

Comic events ahead!

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 13, 2011, 8:16 AM


Hoy! It's been a while since I updated this thing! Hi y'all, I'm still alive and well (and busy). I'm sorry for my inactivity here, I've just been working and doing comics recently, and not drawing as much as I want to.

My comics are doing well, and that's my reason for the update today — I'll be at the Montreal Comiccon next weekend (September 17th and 18th) selling copies of the newly released Boumeries book! It's available in English and French, 87 pages, B&W, with exclusive comics, for the low cost of $10. I'll be at table A28, and you'll be able to find some originals as well. Drop by!

Boum at the Montreal Comiccon by boum

For those who can't make it but will still be in Montreal the week after, I'm doing a book launch where I'll be selling the book as well. It's on September 21st from 5PM to 7PM at the Benelux Brasserie Artisanale (245 Sherbrooke West). The Facebook event is HERE.

BOUMERIES BOOK LAUNCH by boum

Those who can't possibly teleport to Montreal in time, I'll open an online store once these are over. Stay tuned! :heart:

Vote for my design on a T-shirt!

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 27, 2011, 9:49 AM


Hi, folks! I'm always shy to ask this kind of thing, but I need your help right now. I've submitted a T-shirt design on a site called Chic Moustache where people vote for their favourites. The voting ends in five days, and my score is just under the 4.00 mark, which usually is the key to get the design printed.

Here's my design, for those interested:


Now, don't get scared because the site is in French, there's a very easy way to go around that even if you don't have a translating browser — the site allows you to connect with Facebook! Just go here, find the Facebook button and hit it, and you should normally be registered (at least that's what happened to me). Then you can go to my design and vote for it!

I'll be forever grateful if you do! Thank you! :heart:

Hey you guys! I started that almost-daily comic thing! Now I'm participating in an event called Daily Comic Week (pretty self-explanatory — draw one comic a day for a week), and then afterwards I'll be updating the site with new comics three days a week. How does that sound?

I hope you like, and if you do, please pass the word around! :heart:

Hourly Comic Day Tomorrow

Mon Jan 31, 2011, 7:49 AM


Hi guys! I haven't updated this thing in a while, eh? Turns out my Twitter account is a better place to hear the latest news from me, but now and then I like to bump the old journal entry :B

So yeah! Tomorrow February 1st is Hourly Comic Day and I'll be participating! I'll be doing one comic strip every hour about random things that happened to me recently. I'll be tweeting about them all day and later (probably the next day) I'll upload them in batches on here and on my blog. I'd love to get instant feedback, so if you have Twitter, be sure to drop by — I'll probably need encouraging, tee hee.

I'll probably post a reminder tomorrow too (as I'll be spending the whole day on the computer...).

Thanks you guys :heart:
