    Yaaay 1st? It's great to be able to rediscover your old comics :) You should have so,e kind of system where when you click on the flags top left of the page, you get redirected to the CORRESPONDING COMIC in the different language, not just the most up-to-date version. Tis my opinion anyhow :-3 Love Ur stuff, keep it up!

    I plan to take digital photos of everything, write a little bit about each of them, and then throw them away. Someday.

    haha, don't worry. you can keep things for the rest of your life, and after your death only two things happen: somebody comes, cleans, check everything and keeps something that person liked in particular; the rest is thrown to the infinite and far away. the other thing: a <> and all your stuff goes there. don't worry,enjoy your couch and then let it go.

    Oh, come on! We are humans! Humans are creative beings and create ideas and things. Things are materialized ideas. What is Michelangelo's David to goat or fish? Just a stone! What is comics? Just a dead wood. We are humans, because we have ability to give a meaning and purpose to stones, couches, cereal boxes and comics.

    You left out the "viel ordi tout neuf" joke from the French version ("Brand new vintage computer" ?).

    i feel your pain. i recently had to sell my beautiful couch, the only new one i've ever owned. i moved to a much smaller place and it just wouldn't fit. i also told myself "No storage locker, that's cheating." So i had to get rid of A LOT of stuff. It was very painful but i'm glad i did it. A long time ago, during an earlier attempt to reduce my stuff, i came up with a rule: I would not permit myself to acquire any thing that did not fit within the following 3 categories: 1. A book. 2. A tool. 3. A storage device. I then spent the next decade or so pushing the boundaries of those categories :D This is always a "work in progress", good luck! PS I really miss my big beautiful couch.

    An interesting experiment is to put your junk in drawers, boxes or just throw it in a closet and watch how fast it multiplies, as in procreation with mommy and daddy junks making lots of little baby junks. You turn around and it's like swarming with lots of new junk. It was always thought that this was something like the "Missing-Sock Dimension" but NOW WE KNOW THE TRUTH!!!

    Whoa, I never noticed that the English version of the comic was years behind the French version. Guess I should learn to read French now!

    Ha! This is familiar. I remember when I first had a house. And I had a shiny red Citroen GS on the drive. And some birds had pooped on it, so I got a big bowl of warm soapy water, and was cleaning the car on the drive on a Saturday morning, when AAAGH WHAT AM I DOING? CLEANING THE CAR ON THE DRIVE ON SATURDAY MORNING? THIS IS WHAT OLD PEOPLE DO! WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN TO ME? CAN IT BE CURED? I am proud to say I dropped the copy water and ran off screaming, and didn't stop running and screaming until I got to a pub. If it had been a DS, I would have finished cleaning it.

    Hi! A few days ago I read the strips on your blog continuously. You are very clever! I almost went into depression because I can not draw like you draw...You make this seen so simples. But, it's not simple. I know, I draw (sometimes)... About getting rid of things, imagine this: You are a pirate walking around free, but has a hidden island of all, where you keep your treasures. Pretty better? But, if you still want to get rid of some things, try to get rid of just ONE THING per day, everyday. Usually works. I usually buy independent comics (I love Lucy Knisley, Fabio Moom e Bá), but yours are hard to find. I find "Notes" on Amazon CA, but I don't understand French well enough to read (and I do not write english very well too). Maybe one day I go to France, has hints of places to buy comics?

    F.A.Q.

    • Q : Who are you and what is this blog ?

      I’m Boulet, a french cartoonist living in Paris. I’ve had about 20 books published, most of them for young readers. I also worked on two books of the “Dungeon” series with Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar (available in English, ask at your local comic shop).
      This blog is an attempt to translate my french blog ” bouletcorp.com “. I started in 2004 and have drawn more than 1600 entries. I’m trying to catch up but it’s a huge undertaking!

    • Q : The translation are sometime awkward, how do you work ?

      The translation is a very delicate subject !

      Most of the translations were performed by followers of my french blog, but very few of them are native anglophones, so the accuracy varies a lot.

      I tried to find a professional translator but it turned out it was far too much expensive for me alone. So I offered to give an original artwork in exchange of amateur translations (like, for a month or so of comics to translate) but even then it was complicated because just the re-handwriting the texts and posting them alone took a lot of time, and having to do original artworks for it and posting them was a lot of work too. Anyway I can’t manage it like this either.

      So for this new version, I’m going to give it a try and translate all by myself.

    • Q : Can we help you to make it sound better ?

      That would be the idea !

      As you can see in this FAQ, I’m not so good in english ! So here’s what I have in mind: if you think you can make the translation sound better, just write your propositions in the comments, and I will gradually update the comics.

      The more comments and remarks I’ll get, the more I’ll be happy !

      Just be indulgent, I try my best, and translation is not my main job !

    • Q : I am french, but I fluently speak english, can I help anyway ?

      Yes you can, of course, but must tell I will pay more attention to native anglophone comments !

      I had a lot of people trying to translate, and each time, english or american people told me it was still awkward. French people tend to be overconfident with their level in english or at least, with their ability to translate a comic. It’s not just about being accurate, it’s also about making it soud good, you have to feel it, and that’s almost impossible if you are not english or american.

      The best help I could help would be from english or US cartoonists !

    • Q : I can’t translate, but is there anything else I can do to help ?

      Even if it’s written in english, it’s not easy to share this webcomic: in France I can rely on cartoonist friends or specialized reeferers to share, but it’s very difficult to make people discover my work in other countries !

      So if you want to help, it’s very easy: you can share with your friends ! If you have friends who don’t speak french, tell them about this page, and use social networks to share the comics you liked !

    • Q : How did you make this layout ?

      First, this blog was programmed with flash.

      But flash is a very heavy format, and very difficult to share. A few months ago, I decided to rebuild it whith a different platform. I discussed about this with Arnold on Twitter. He’s very good with WordPress, so I designed and he made this happen !

       

    • Q : Can I use the same layout for my blog ?

      WordPress is supposed to be a free-sharing platform, but we worked a lot on this, and we don’t specially want that anyone could use it without consulting us.

      The layout programming is Arnold’s, so you can ask him and he will be the only judge ! If he likes your work, I think he will be happy to authorize you to use this !

      His contact is at the bottom of the site, on the main page.

    • Q : Where can we buy your work ? Do you have a shop with posters, mugs or T-shirts ?

      For now, there’s not such a thing. I try to keep this the less “commercial” I can. But maybe I will change my mind some day !

      The only available work I have in english are the two books I drew for the serie “Dungeon” with Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar. Ask for it in any comic book shop ! The more you ask them to order it, the easiest will it get to obtain !
      If you want to have a better translation of this webcomic, you just have to harass US and UK publishers, till one of them agrees to publish it in english :)

    • Q : Can I use one of your comics to print a shirt / a poster / to put it on my blog / to illustrate my book / magazine ?

      No, you can’t ! :)
      All this comics ask a lot of time to draw, and I don’t want them to be taken out of this blog, especially if it’s for commercial use.
      And most of this blog material is already printed by the french publisher Delcourt, so it would be highly illegal !
      They are some exceptions, though:
      -You can use one panel or two if you are making a citation (for example: if you write an article about my work or about webcomics in general, you can show a couple of pictures, without asking me. You just have to put the source under it: my name and the blog’s URL, clikable if your article is on internet. You don’t specially have to tell me, but it would be nice)
      -If you want to share a story on internet, the way I like better is one panel, clikable, redirecting to my original blog.
      -You can use a comic or more for pedagogic use if it’s a non-commercial use: if you’re a teacher and you need a printing from the blog for your class, if you’re a student and need an illustration for an essay or your thesis, I’m totally ok if you respect these two conditions: you have to ask me FIRST (because I wouldn’t like to illustrate something I totally disagree with), and the use must be completely NON-COMMERCIAL (you CAN’T sell it, no matter the format), NON-POLITIC (especially if you are a kind of nationalist NRA douchebag) and NON-RELIGIOUS (I’m an atheist, and I work for no church or cult)

    • Q : Can I buy you an original artwork ?

      I don’t really need mone for now, so I don’t sell my original works… So no !
      And I have a lot of work waiting to be done, so I don’t have time to make special drawings for birthdays, christmas presents or stuff like that !

    • Q : I’m very rich and I want to hire you / I want to publish your work

      Ok, send me an email and we’ll see ! :)
      I’m not specially looking for work now, but if you have something nice to propose, maybe we can find an arrangement !
      If you want to publish material from this blog, my publisher shares the copyrights with me, so you have to contact him ! look for “editions Delcourt” on the web !
