Anyone going to the International Comics Festival in Angoulême, France, at the end of this month? I am. For the full four days, and for free – it’s the top prize of the cartoon contest I won some time ago. Because all the hotels in Angoulême were already booked, I’ll be staying in the (almost) nearby city of Cognac. Since hanging out at a comics festival for four days seems like a bit of overkill, I think I’ll do some siteseeing in the region too. But if you would happen to go there as well and would like to meet up, drop me a line at kartoen (at) gmail (dot) com!
I don’t know how many people keeping checking up on this site, in desperate need of Happysad updates, but if you’re one of them: I just wanted to drop by and say hi, and assure you I’m still alive. But that’s about it. As for new cartoons, I think it’s quite clear the last few updates after the infamous #1000 didn’t exactly accomplish the task of kicking this series back into life. I have to admit, my bucket of inspiration has completely run dry. No use in trying to force it, that obviously doesn’t work. Maybe it’s about time a came up with something new, I don’t know. In any case, just like Happysad just came to me one day, we’ll have to be patient and wait for inspiration (or a new muse??) to strike again. Until then, I’ll still keep an eye on my site, because I love your comments.
