Le refuge - FULL VIEW PLZ by junglecookie Le refuge - FULL VIEW PLZ by junglecookie
Hi there !

Here is a page I ade for the BD-Fil contest, a comic festival in Lausanne. But it seems my entry didn't catch the attention of the jury :(

The theme was "The Garden".

Translation of the texts :

"My garden is somewhere among the clouds,
on a flying island whence I stare at the World.

It is not wide, but I'm feeling good there.

This is a parenthesis out of time...

...that abounds with treasures...

...but the most precious that I own here, are not the jewels-scarabs, nor the night-color-dragonflies, nor the light-flowers... This is an appletree of whom the fruits are always ripe, that doesn't fear the winter, and in the core of whom, every night, I fall asleep."

Wow :P C'est don bin fantastique :D

You should make it a print :)

j'aime vraiment l'image et le personnage et son histoire est vraiment chouette :P

J'imagine que de dormir dans un arbre creux est bien sécuritaire lorceque l'on fait dodo haut dans le ciel :P

Je crois que ça pourrait devenir une bd de 40 pages - les gens aimeraient ça c'est tellement hors du comun :) Et humain en un certain sens profond - - - - un peu à l'image de petit-prince mais en plus sympathique et au final, totalement diférent :P

Je suis charmé :)

Wah, merci beaucoup, je suis vraiment touchée :]
Une BD de quarante pages ? Ouais pourquoi pas... C'est p'tet un peu trop formaté pour l'histoire que j'ai dans la tête, le côté A4/BD-franco-belge, mais ma foi, en faire un livre, pourquoi pas :]

Merci de ton soutien, j'apprécie énormément.

je trouve ton travail très bien réalisé. Je participe a un concours, et je sais que ce n'est pas évidnt de faire une sorte d'histoire en une seule page. Du coup j'ai beaucoup aimé ton travail ^^

comme tu l'as dit, ce n'état peut-ête pas le style du jury, mais au moins tu vois que beaucoup ont aimé ton travail ^^

vraiment superbe en tout cas. Encore bravo!

I don't often comment on DDs because I know the artist, at that point, is quite busy with faves and other comments, but this is a truly amazing piece of work, both in art (unique style, coloring, shading, lighting) and in wording. It really surprises me all in all that this didn't capture the attention of any of the judges. Beautifully done. It's purposeful, elegant and detailed- there's nothing about this piece not to love. Fantastic job and I love the creativity you put behind it, thinking outside of the box with such a mundane theme! Amazing!!!
