The Fly (Making of the zine)

The fly is one of the many new characters from the Old Pond Comics series I was able to developed thanks to a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
In this behind-the-scene video, I show how I put my zines together.
The zine will be available soon on the Old Pond Comics online store: http://bit.ly/1CMjddW

The Fly (Making of): assembling the comic strips

writing-process-IMG_5969

It’s so exciting the moment you realize you have enough comic strips to make a book. (Well, if you can call a zine, a “book”.)  Next step is to assemble the comics in a mock-up version.

This new story features the adventures of a haiku poet who is trying to get rid of a fly that lives in his house. It will be told through haiku-comics.

The zine will be available at the Haiku Canada Week-end in May 2015 and afterwards on my online store.
