38 hours left!Hey guys, just letting you know that there is 38 hours left to the Namesake Kickstarter. We did really, really, really well so far. I'm amazed and I want to thank all of you. If you know someone who might like to read Namesake, please let them know we exist. Let the fairy tale love be shared!!

I can barely contain my excitement, no joke, you guys.
7 days left!7 is a pretty important number in fairy tales, so it seems fitting to announce the last remaining 7 days of the Namesake Kickstarter.
As you may all know right now, Namesake is a fairy tale I write and draw with Megan Lavey-Heaton that is basically the fairy tale version of Quantum Leap. People known as Namesakes can jump to fantasy worlds, and our adventure follows Emma, a Namesake who seems to have the special capacity of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. It's got adventure, mystery, dark humour and creepastic visuals. What's not to love?
With only 7 days left, we already made it to 11 000$, which is bloody amazing. Seriously. It's 4000$ over our goal.
I squealed a lot when I saw that.
I know there's still a bit of people who would like a copy of book one out there, so i'm just passing the word around that there is still time!
Book will also be on sale after the Kickstarter is over, for you folks who may not have money at the moment (life is rough, after all) or don't have
7000!Well.. The Namesake Kickstarter reached it's 7000$ goal! OH MY GOD. You guys. And with only 189 people. I can't believe how generous everyone was. I'm all crazy happy and touched and Ack. You guys. What are you doing to me? HUGS FOR ALL.
On my tumblr, you can see the special art I drew for everytime we passed a 1000 mark. And i'm going to keep going too!

Love you all.
Namesake Kickstarter!What is Namesake?
Namesake is the story of Emma Crewe, a woman who is stolen in the aftermath of a library fire and is dumped in a land made famous by literature and cinema. She learns she's a Namesake, uniquely connected to this world by the power of her given name, and now she must act as the story's protagonist as she figures out how to make her way home. But as Emma travels, she discovers that those controlling her story have their own selfish goals in mind and her fate is the key to everyone's happy ending.
What is this Kickstarter for?
We're raising the money to print volume 1 of Namesake. It's 144-page sewn-perfect softcover book and contains the prologue through chapter 5 plus a 5-page bonus story. The funds would cover the print job, the purchase of ISBN numbers and some extra leeway for shipping, Kickstarter and Amazon fees, rewards, etc.

Webcomic wallpaper to stop human trafficking!The Comic Creators for Freedom (CCF) donation drive to stop human trafficking is now online, and that until the 20th.
127 webcomic creators have volunteered to create an epic snowball fight themed wallpaper. The wallpaper is offered in exchange for a donation. And every red cent goes to the cause.
There are currently 27 million enslaved people worldwide- more than double the number of enslaved Africans during the trans-Atlantic slave trade. UNICEF estimates that 1.2 million children every year are sold into slavery, most of it sexual. The US Department of Justice estimates 16,000 victims of human trafficking are brought into the United States every year.
This is a pretty big issue. So you know, donate a bit, help out, feel good, get an amazing wallpaper. No downpoints here.

Emma from me webcomic Namesake will be on the wallpaper. She looks adorable along with all the other awesome ladies featured in this.

Calm and poiseHey guys!
Today is provincial holiday in Québec, so i'm taking the day to draw and clean. This weekend, i'm working Saturday and Sunday at the bookstore, so I really need to get next week's Namesake pages inked and ready before midnight tonight! I'm pretty sure I can do it.
Speaking of which, I'm currently working on a cover for a Namesake limited-edition print issue of the prologue and first chapter. Link helped me re-color the pages. Me and Megan are printing this to have something Namesake-related to sell at cons, mainly Fanexpo. Here's what the cover looks like :
Namesake (limited edition) is a 32-page full-color magazine-sized (8.25 x 10.75) comic with a color cover and black-and-white interior covers. It features:
- A special cover drawn especially for this issue
- Prologue and chapter 1 of Namesake with new coloring by Pascal Michaud and redone text that matches the style of the current webcomic i
Hey guys, meet me in Toronto this weekend!Hello all!
Just wanted to let you know that I will be in Toronto this weekend (May 7th and 8th) for the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) http://torontocomics.com/. I will be selling my new printed book, Jabberwocky, there, at my editor's table. The table will be located on the first floor, table #130 (next to the Stanley Wany name, he's my editor. and he's pretty awesome!) http://torontocomics.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/map_1st_floor.jpg
Come and see me to talk, get a book, or a little drawing! In case i'm not at the table, it probably means i'm running around the festival, but i'll be back! For sure!
Devious Journal Entry So, a few people asked me to do various tutorials. And because I just love approval and showing off my skill, I totally complied.
This is the first video. Right here on youtube. It's about how to draw clothing. It's not great. I wanted to try doing it via webcam, but it's reallllllyyyy not great. Next time I try to do one, it will be using my professional camera and tripod (yes, I totally own those things).
So, let me know what tutorials you guys would like to see. Something about inking? Expressions? Etc?Speaking of tutorials, the beloved illustrator of Lackadaisy as created a WONDERFUL one about expressions. Don't be shy! Check it out!

ALL Next Gen Fun Facts!This is fan made!
All Next Gen Fun Facts! :iconwoootplz: Everything from my previous fun facts journals as well as some new ones are in here I probably won't make any more new Fun Facts journals. Instead, I'll just add them in here and let you know if there are any updates (if they are worth mentioning of course) I'll probably add more to the younger characters later since I'm still developing them. HOLY FRICK THIS JOURNAL IS LONG!
If this journal in particular is too long, you can look at these kinda shorter ones that narrow the characters down by category

Pony Price ListGeneral Commission Info Hat Pricing FAQ
All plushes are minky with applique eyes and cutie marks, unless otherwise agreed upon.
"Starting prices" are listed for all types of plushes. "Starting prices" are defined as the price for the most basic pony of that kind.
