|John J. Boulet (Gilles Roussel)|
It's amazing to see:
I was so enthralled by Boulet's work when I discovered him sometime last year that I started looking at all of his comics starting with the first. I know a little French and not enough to actually read his comics (some of them are in English and Japanese) but the beauty of work is that you often don't need to know the language in order to have an idea as to what's happening. His drawings are so lyrical that you can often figure out what's happening.
I recommend going through all of Boulet's French-language comics or you can see them in one of his collections:
I love the way Boulet depicts himself! He's not afraid to show his imperfections and shortcomings.
Boulet's work is so inspiring to me that I decided to do something similar myself. The creation of the comic will be an exercise in imagination and will force me to learn draw things I ordinarily wouldn't have. More on that in the next post.
