BREAK

5 min read
Like the title says, I'm going to take a break, not from drawing but from social media. With this news comes the closure of my Tipeee and Patreon accounts. The decision may seem abrupt to you, but it is the result of a need for a change in the way I work which has grown over the months, until it became obvious to me. Including the webcomic platforms, I update no less than 10 platforms, including 6 on a multi-weekly basis. It takes me a third of my time and honestly, I've gotten to a point where I literally feel exhausted from social media and the race for visibility. I feel like I have been chasing for years after a train that started without me and that I will never catch up anyway. The problem is, working without social media when you're a freelance artist is like leaving your career behind. So I would like to rethink the way I manage communication in order to free myself time to draw again and to regain a freedom of mind that I have lost for too long. And this change requires that

Avis aux francophones ! Mon webcomic « Plumes » est maintenant disponible en français et dans un format lisible sur portable sur Webtoon ! Si vous n’aviez pas encore passé la pas de la lecture, c’est le moment d’en profiter car j’y ai posté le chapitre 01 en entier. Je vais poster la suite à raison d’une mise à jour par semaine jusqu’à rattraper la publication actuelle, avant de repasser sur le rythme normal d’une mise à jour toutes les 2 semaines. ^^ C’est ici que ça se passe > https://www.webtoons.com/fr/challenge/plumes/list?title_no=585392 ---------------- Just a small announcement about the French publication of my webcomic "Plumes" on webtoon. ^^

I still need a bit of time to edit the batch of pages already completed of the Chapter 2. If everything goes well I should resume publication next week. ^^ In addition, I have been working on « Plumes » since October 2019 and I realized that with the quality I am aiming for this comic, publishing one page per week is not manageable in the long term. I know it's going to be a marathon of several years so I would like to avoid exhausting myself from the first kilometers. I was hoping to avoid getting there, but I'm going to slow down the public publication to one page every two weeks. Those who want to follow me as closely as possible can find me on Tipeee and Patreon where my Tipers and Patrons are 8 pages ahead. I post about 2 pages in three weeks there, so the lead should continue to grow. Anyway, thank you for your support and feedback on this first chapter! My last comic experience left me bled dry and I admit that I am still terrified with each page I post. So your enthusiasm is
