25hBD 2020 [FR + Eng]

[English under]

Ce week-end (24-25 octobre 2020), je participais aux 25 heures de la BD et de l’illustration. Pendant le week-end du changement d’heure, nous avons 25h entre samedi 13h et dimanche 13h. Le défi est de créer 12 pages de BD ou 12 illustrations.
Voici donc ma petite histoire illustrée.
Ce chat est dédié à mes amis qui ont un chat blanc et à l’ancien de ma voisine à 3 pattes (RIP) que je laissais venir pour faire la sieste. ♥

Bonus : voici un lien vers le site les 25HBD, vous pourrez y découvrir des dizaines de participations, de cette année, mais également des précédentes.

[FR] Les évènements locaux de l’été

Amis Auvergnats, retour aux évènements !

• Cet été, la boutique des Drôles de zèbres, qui regroupe uniquement des créateurs locaux ouvre ses portes au 10 rue Terrasse, vers la place de la Victoire, à Clermont-Ferrand.
Tu retrouveras quelques-uns de mes prints au format carte postale sur place.

• Tu peux également en profiter pour passer voir l’exposition collective pour le parc animalier à la galerie Volcanic’Arts Agence – Galerie qui n’est pas loin, au 3 place du Terrail, vers le Frac.
La vente des œuvres est en soutien au parc animalier d’Auvergne qui a beaucoup souffert du confinement. Une partie revient également aux artistes.
J’ai réalisé pour eux 6 illustrations et 4 d’entre elles sont disponibles en tirage A5.

📅 L’expo sera visible au parc tous les dimanches jusqu’au 16 août, ainsi que les mardi et mercredi 21 et 22 juillet, et 4, 5, 11 et 12 août !

Normalement tu pourras voir ma sale tête au prochain évènement. Ce sera en comité hyper limité et super cool ! #TEASING

Mental Health Awareness Week : Sow Ay x The…

A collab’ I’m super happy to share !

A few months ago, I was asked to create a t-shirt design for supporting the Blurt Foundation during Mental Health Awareness Week and I of course immediately said yes !

The full collection « Be Kind To Your Mind » is available on Print Social’s website until the 31st of may :

https://www.weareprintsocial.com/blurt-foundation

I already knew The Blurt Foundation and I love their work. It is a charity working on raising awareness about depression, I really recommend their website blurtitout.org because it’s full of relatable and super informative articles.

The theme for this year was « Sleep ». Isn’t that perfect for someone who doesn’t know how to ? I made this drawing 3 months ago, so I’m super excited to finally share it !

I wanted a visual that could show how endless a night can feel without sleep so that’s how I ended up drawing sheeps. That’s a way to say it without words so non-English speakers can get it as well ! (Hi Mom !). The design can first look funny and I like that but the story behind is way darker since it’s representing a serious problem. The sheeps have funny faces because I love drawing funny faces but it can also represent the mood swings during the night. Do you identify with one of them ? I personally identify with the black one. (lol, I’m so funny)

Note : the benefits of the collection will be split in half between The Blurt Foundation and the artists, so you help us all continue our work !
Note 2 : this is one of the collab’ I was the most excited about for the first half of 2020 so when all my work got canceled, I hoped very strongly this one wouldn’t !

Presentation

Alona sent me this amazing picture of her presentation about depression. And she’s not the first one. I’m so proud to be helping psychologists from the whole planet !

Collaboration

Hope For The Day

Hope For The Day is an organization that focuses on mental health education throught self expression.
I met them over a year ago, at the Never Say Die Tour. As I’ve always been struggling with anxiety and mental issues, I could relate to the cause, so I emailed them and we’ve been speaking about collaboration.

They asked me to tell them my story and they are sharing some of my recents artworks on their social media accounts to bring awereness about mental illness. And I’m really proud of this.

I’m also sharing lots of comics about this on http://sow-ay.tumblr.com/
I can also tell you I’ll be making an exhibition about mental illness with those minimalist drawings. I made many as the anxiety became stronger than ever and discovering my artworks can help people gave me an amazing purpose.
