A small sampling of the amazing images you will see on this tumblr. Thibaud Poirier is a self taught photographer from France, born in 1987. His photography journey started in 2012 and he fell in love with it straight away. Some people just seem to get it, he has figured out a way to capture the world around us in a clear simple way that is at the same time original and new.
This time around it’s all snippets from a comic I am working on. I am painfully aware that I don’t actually have much in the way of proper experience in drawing sequential work (or to be more accurate I have drawn a meagre 24 pages to date). In order to get a bit more practice in before I start work on an ongoing series this fall (more on that later), I’m taking a leaf out of the book of Becky Cloonan and drawing a mini-comic with a view to having it available to buy for those of you attending Thought Bubble this November.
You will be able to see that all my favorite tropes are covered - beards, boats, skeletons, the sea and it’s mysteries - and there will no doubt be more snippets posted between now and November.
