The 3 Little Princesses Part 2

The 3 Little Princesses Part 2

People have been bombarding me with questions regarding the comic for a few weeks now. Here's what I have to say about it. - It's not canceled, not is it on a long-term hiatus. It's just on hold. I'm still working on it these days. I just have to juggle with many other tasks. - I want the next string of updates to be the last one. In other words, when the comic goes live again, it will be going uninterrupted until it reaches the end of the story. - The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation has made things a bit more complicated since art is my main revenue and many conventions and festivals I was set on attending have been canceled. Several oth

I have a Patreon!

I have a Patreon!

I'm finally announcing that I have a Patreon! So if you've ever wanted to support me in my art activities, you can do so here for a dollar per month! It's like, $12 per year! I swear! Right now there's only the $1 per month tier,  though it is upgradable.  I can't offer more than what I already supply at the moment, but eventual bigger support means I can do more, and more often. I'll eventually set tiers with actual rewards in the future, but for now everything you give will go towards supporting my current online art activities, like T3LP (and thus keep it from falling into a hiatus again because I need to get food on my table). So yeah,

KIMI NO NA WA?

For a reason unbeknownst to be, several people have been asking me how to pronounce my names and screenname in the last few days. So to quench everybody's thirst of useless knowledge (and because I have no other use for journals right now), here it goes. My first name, Yves, is pronounced like the girls' name Eve. The E and S letters are silent (as is half of the French language's alphabet). My last name, Bourgelas, is pronounced Boh-r-jell-ah. It's very French, and also very French-sounding. The S is also silent. My screenname is a pun on Boogeyman. A friend of mine used to call me all sorts of variants of my last name and one day this on

Upcoming conventions, summer 2018

Upcoming conventions, summer 2018

I just realized I stopped announcing which conventions I attend as a selling artist a while ago. I'm-a correct this right now! People of Montreal, I'll be at Otakuthon, an anime/manga convention, on August 3-5th at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal. I'll be selling some of my artwork there, as well as taking commissions! Here's my table placement below. I'll be at booth #546 besides my friends boum (https://www.deviantart.com/boum), Lightcall-Skeleton (https://www.deviantart.com/lightcall-skeleton) and YamiJay (https://www.deviantart.com/yamijay)! Also, for those in the Greater Toronto Area, I'll attend Fan Expo Canada on August 30-31—Sept. 1-2 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. My table number will be A414. I'll sell ar

Nostalgia vs. T3LP part 2: An Editorial

Nostalgia vs. T3LP part 2: An Editorial

This is a repost of what I wrote on Twitter earlier today, which explains the occasional dodgy phrasing. Sorry for the novel, but I feel this is quite important. Nostalgia is a powerful thing. It distorts the perception of memories of our past, by filtering out the mundane and the bad, only keeping what's perceived as good. It's like a picture perfect split second snapshot of a sometimes not-so-great moment. It defines the moment. Fans don't like when we mess with their nostalgia. Somehow it feels like we are attacking their good experience of a thing. Giving a beloved childhood game a bad review. Changing a beloved character's backstory. R

T3LP vs. the obligatory April 2nd clearup journal

T3LP vs. the obligatory April 2nd clearup journal

So, yesterday (April Fools Day), I went on and declared The 3 Little Princesses would finally get a sequel. This post was done with the date in mind. However, after the day was gone in most countries in the world, I went on and truthfully declared I hadn't made any pranks this year. It confused a whole lot of you. :XD: That wasn't originally my plan, but I found the whole ordeal hilarious. Most people here didn't know what to believe. So now that April 1st is totally gone, here is the piece of information you're looking for: Yes, The 3 Little Princesses sequel IS happening! Do you really think I would make such a cruel joke? ;p :dance::da

Regarding my last announcement...

Regarding my last announcement...

I think most of you were aware that today was April Fools Day! Hope you had a great time. I sure did. I like to play pranks on DeviantART on April 1st. Let's see: In 2012, I published a fake Mario hentai website. In 2014, I flipped most of my profile page upside down. In 2015, I announced a Supercrashgirl spin-off series. In 2017, I published a fake end-of-series page on the Supercrash website. But this year, I didn't pull a single prank. ... I let you do the math. :)

An exciting announcement!

An exciting announcement!

Hi y'all! I'm not posting a lot these days, but I needed to write this journal. I've been thinking about it a lot lately, and I think it's about time I listened to what you guys have been continuously shouting at me about for the last 9ish years. It's time I'm bringing back The 3 Little Princesses for a sequel! I've thought about it long and hard. Supercrash's not working as well as I anticipated, and I haven't had a lot of ideas for original stories lately, so I thought it was about time I went back to my roots and started to work on what put me on the map (or more precisely, on the Internet). The Bourgyman the Mario fan artist is back!

Sorry for not posting much here. I'm much more active on other social platforms these days, and DeviantArt is usually the last place where I update (if I update it at all). This website's not what it used to be... I'm currently doing the Inktober art challenge, so if you'd like to see all my stuff as I post it, please follow me at any of the following places: Twitter (the best place to interact with me right now) Facebook (The Bourgyman) (Supercrash) Instagram Tumblr Thanks, have a good day y'all!
