- Montreal - by vervex - Montreal - by vervex
I normally put my comics in the Scraps but I like this one a lot...

It's a comic for the Student Journal (TDU) in my college and the theme this month was "Montreal and its culture".

~ ~ ~

Explanation for English speaking people:

I illustrated this little guy coming from the country side. ("St-Clinclin": most of the villages start with "saint" followed by any name, so "clinclin" is a generic name, a joke really. "St-Clinclin" means "any village".)
He arrives in Montreal and discovers tons of other languages... except his!
(The fact is that only 30% of the residents of Montreal are there since more than 3 generations. It results in the end in a population composed at 70% immigrants or sons of immigrants.)

In the last panel, he calls his mom and say "Mom! I think I left Quebec (the state)!!"

~ ~ ~

I was inspired by www.sinfest.net

Well, hope you like :) Leave a little comment if you want ! They're always appreciated !

xD Tu sais, c'est pas par les métropoles qu'il faut juger un pays parce qu'ils sont tous pareils

J'ai eu la même réaction quand j'ai quitté mon trou de sorel pour aller étudier à Montréal :(

En effet, les métropoles sont bien différentes :) Mais au final j'aime bien la diversité personnellement. Je ne regrette pas! :)

Cest vraiment bon...mais pk ta ecrit State enplace de province?

vervex Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Parce que j'imagine que plusieurs américains (sans rancune) ne savent pas ce qu'est une province. Si certaines ne savent même pas que le Québec existe... :P

C'est la bd la plus ovulante de ma vie! Ca me plait à ce point là! J'haillis tellement Montréal justement à cause de sa bouette multiculturelle qui ne fait absolument aucun sens. Juste pour te situer je suis originaire du Saguenay et je vie dans la couronne nord depuis plus de 10 ans (le gettho Québécois) et je trouve toujours autant que Montréal c'est affreux comme ville! Mon cousin (qui vient du Saguenay aussi) est venu vivre à Montréal cette année et il est traumatisé au max lui aussi.

et voila le p'tit Citadin de québec qui s'amène avec sa phrase de rivalité Québec vs.Montréal: Dans ma ville les gens parlent notre langage! :p

Bon mis à part ce commentaire débile, J'adore ta bande-dessinée. très belles lignes, scénario simple mais très intelligent. Ça va cherché des souvenirs a beaucoup de monde. Moi-même quand j'ai visité Mtl j'ai eu le même raisonnement.

Bon pour m'évité le réflexe de l'analyse littéraire (Le cégep ça donne des mauvais plis:XD:) Je vais m'arrêter maintenant.

Merci pour le commentaire et le fav ;)
