You maaaa~~ay have noticed that I've not been very active on DA for the past few years. Thing is, for me as for many ancient members over here I guess, the appeal of this place has faded out & most of my friends have moved on to other social medias - where I'm not.

I can't say that I'm super active on other websites because I'm not a very talkative person on the internet in general, not anymore anyways - but compared to what little I post here, I'm way more active on tumblr. So please let's meet there from time to time ;) !
In the meantime, I will try to post more stuff on DA, at least to keep in touch with the few people who're still around, and not on tumblr.

As for MPA : the comic is on hiatus at the moment, because I'm currently busy with an other, very time-consuming project, part photostory part comic, called Ignition. It's in french and it has its own website, you can check it out here : Ignition
I'm working on the comic part these days ; it's a short one-shot that will be translated in english. My hope is to use the momentum of this intense work pace to get back to MPA at full speed when the Ignition comic is over ... but I may as well end up completely drained after this and unable to touch a stylus for the next six months... unfortunately, both scenarios are plausible. We'll see ^^; ! *brews 3 gallons of coffee*

:bulletwhite: Algesiras's Questions :

1. Do you prefer to work in silence or with music?
I usually start working with music but almost always switch it off at some point. When I have to really concentrate on something I need silence.

2. What's your favorite subject to draw/paint?
Tricky question. Having a “favourite” subject implies that I like drawing it, but since I’m not a very confident artist, drawing’s kind of a hassle, whatever the subject.

3. Do you use a lot of references when you create?
Yep, can’t do anything without.

4. What was your childhood dream? Did you realize it - or plan to?
I wanted to become either Fantômette or Indiana Jones, to get some supernatural powers such as being able to fly or turn into any kind of animal, to become an astronaut, and/or Miss France.
Not even close.

5. What's your favorite painting/art movement?
I’m rather ignorant, art wise, so I wouldn’t know. When I look at the pictures I hanged on my walls, I see some ukiyo-e by Hiroshige, a painting made by a friend (who happens to be Japanese), a print of a watercolour from a Chinese artist, a print from an unknown chinese artist, and postcards from a modern japanese artist. So I guess the answer closest to the truth would be “stuff that comes from Asia”, but it doesn’t make much sense in terms of art movements…

6. What do you do to relax/pass time when you can't sleep?
I dwell on my stories, I refine them, I add new developments.

7. When was the last time you felt really proud of yourself?
I don’t know. I can remember recent episodes of feeling very relieved at not having completely failed at something, but that’s not exactly the same thing, I guess.

8. What are you afraid of?
People’s lack of empathy,
diseases, car accidents. In that order.

9. Imagine you're the mayor of a new city, how will you name it?
TOWN and it will be mandatory for every citizen to own at least one cute pet.

10. Do you have a very precise idea/image in mind when you want to draw something or do you start randomly & let the pen/inspiration guide you ?
I always have a very precise idea in mind.


:bulletwhite: 10 things

  1. Soaking in very hot water is one of my favourite things in life.
  2. Also drinking tea. Hot water ftw
  3. On the other hand, one of my least favourite things in life is talking on the phone. I seriously hate it.
  4. Also, driving a car. ugh
  5. I’m definitely an introvert, but it doesn’t show because I’m not especially shy around people.
  6. One of my personal tragedies is that I’d love to have a cat, but I’m allergic to them.
  7. My favourite topics in school were math, biology and latin. Nerd alert.
  8. I’d love to visit Iceland.
  9. I like the sound of birds chirping but if the birds in my neighbourhood are reading this, could you guys kindly refrain from screeching on top of your tiny but eerily powerful lungs in the middle of the night, please. Yeah I know it’s spring and all, but still, we humans need to sleep once in a while. Kthx.
  10. I’d like to get a new fountain pen and fancy colored inks.



:bulletwhite: My questions :

    1-     If you were to create a movie, what genre would it be ?

    2-      who’d be the main actress/actor ?

    3-     In your daily life, do you prefer cosy routine or surprises (good & bad) ?

    4-     Do you like to party, and what was the best party you’ve ever had ?

    5-     When was the last time you wrote a letter by hand to someone ?

    6-     If you were to write a fanfiction or draw a fancomic, what would be your chosen fandom ?

    7-     What is the biggest mistake you’ve ever made ?

    8-     Describe your dream house.

    9-     How many different countries have you visited ?

    10-  Which one is your favourite and would you consider actually moving and live there ?

:bulletwhite: I'm tagging the 10 first persons who'll reply to this, and/or anyone who's interested to do it (please mention me in your journal, I'm actually interested in the answers to my questions ;).)

I'm a professional artist and art is my main source of income.
I'm a professional artist but art is not my main source of income at the moment (I have a side job / I'm unemployed / I have other priorities...etc.)
I'm an art student and I hope to become a professional artist soon.
I'm not an art student nor a professional, for the moment art is a hobby. But I'd like to become an art student and/or a professional artist one day, and try to make a living out of my art, eventually.
I'm not and art student, nor a professionnal ; in a perfect world I'd have liked to try and make a living out of my art, but I don't think it's possible, so I abandoned the idea of becoming a professional artist and I keep art as a hobby.
Art's a hobby for me and I'm happy that way. I don't want to become a professional artist.
I'm not an artist but I'm interested in this poll's results and I have to vote to see them, so there.
Other (please explain in comments ?)
