Hello there,

I am not sure if much traffic comes this way anymore, but just in case, I have updated the blog.

I started here in 2010 and at the time it was my first online presence for many years. Since I have developed many others ways to show my work, mostly via social media, I have abandoned this place a little.

I 've also moved on, and I feel like the old stuff on this blog doesn't reflect my current work anymore, and although there's something good in looking at someone's evolution through time, to me it has reached the point when some stuff here is just not good enough to show anymore. (Not that I don't need to make HUGE progresses!)

 Here's the links where you can find me:

The Monsters of Tasmania now available online!

Finally! My book is available online! 

The last Pozible orders are leaving today after weeks of hard work at the Blueberry Quarters. 

Now it's time to make the book available for others to purchase online! You can now buy it via my Etsy shop:

https://www.etsy.com/shop/CaptainBlueberryshop

For people overseas, I am sorry but for now the postage of the big hardcover book isn't cheap. I am looking into other options. If you can't wait, the limited edition is a lot cheaper to send!

Tips on my Pozible campaign

Hi everyone! 

At my book launch I was asked lots of questions about my Pozible campaign. I wasn’t prepared for those questions and my answers were a bit vague so I thought I would try to make it up with by writing about it on my website. I hope it will help people who want to run a similar project.

Book Launch!

Finally! 

The Monsters of Tasmania are about to land on the island, and you are all invited to come and celebrate!

Come get your signed copy and hear Jon Kudelka say nice things (I hope!) about the book. I might also mumble a little something about how happy I am, and there’s FREE BOOZE. Yep, now you have a good reason to come and bring your friends along. All of them.

So come at Fullers on the Wednesday 28th of May. Starts at 5pm, talks at 5:30 and after that I’ll be drawing monsters on your freshly bought copies, (if I can still manage to draw after all these emotions).


If you plan on coming, please RSV at rsvp@fullersbookshop.com.au. Thank you!

The Monsters of Tasmania are arriving!

Hi everyone!
The first 5 copies of the Monsters of Tasmania have turned out! Very exciting moment, I was a "bit" nervous.
I have attached some photos of the opening moment for you all, (it looks a bit like Christmas, doesn't it!) Again, a huge thanks to everyone who has helped this book becomes a real thing! I can't wait for you all to get your copy!
The bulk of books is about 3 weeks away from arrival, not long now!





Also, I have been busy creating illustrating the Pozible Rewards for the awesome people who pledge a lot to help this book to become a real thing:





More coming soon, I am only half way there!

Bye! 

( I am still going to shift to Tumblr soon, check it out)

Tumblr.

Hello!

I have found a quick and easy new way to post about things, and it's all happening on Tumblr.
Check it out, I'll be likely to slowly shift there as it is a bit easier and quicker to use!

Scout Ceramics

This is the new visual identity I have created for Scout Ceramics, a collection of creations by artist Molly Kendall. 

 The inspiration for Scout originates in Scout Finch, the tomboy daughter of civil rights activist Atticus Finch in the Harper Lee book "To Kill A Mockingbird". Scout is a symbol of bravery and laughter.

One AGDA

Agda has gone through a rebranding, and what came up is pretty awesome!

A selected bunch of designers and illustrators from around the country where asked to come up with a design that would answer the question "What can Australian design do?" The design had to fit in a half "A" shape.

I collaborated with Futago to create the illustration/design below. The idea was that Australian design can bring the most random things together and create something completely new, innovate, have fun while not taking itself too seriously.

It was fun!

Thank you!

Hello hello,

Some belated news from the Blueberry HQ!

The Pozible campaign I ran in February was successful and we went over target by 146%. A big thank you to everyone who helped, shared and pledged!

The project is going ahead. The hardcover edition is sent to print; it might take awhile to happen though, so I am expecting to launch the book at the start of July. The limited explorer edition is under way as well, and should take a lot less time. I am just waiting to confirm on the paper stock and it will be going to print! Exciting times!


Below a mock up of how the Explorer Edition will look like.

A good day!

Hello!

Today there's heaps of things for me to celebrate!  First I became a citizen of Australia, and that's pretty awesome for me. I am French & Australian now! (My french accent isn't gone though, weird ;])

Captain Blueberry was also in the Mercury, a newspaper here in Hobart. (What do you mean, I touched up the photo? No, that's exactly what the photographer took.)


And finally, thanks to all the awesome people who have supported me, shared the Pozible page and gave some money, the Pozible campaign (to raise the funds the get my first book printed) is going really well! We have reached 76% of the target in only 5 days. I am so stoked and grateful and I hope it keeps coming in!


Thanks so much everyone!

Pozible Campaign: The Monsters of Tasmania!

Hallo Passengers,

It's ON!

I have just launched my Pozible Campaign to raise the fund to pay for the print of the children's book I have been working on for the past year! It's very exciting and very scary!

So if you would like to support the project, head to the Pozible page and check out the rewards I have set up for you!

Pozible

Hello everyone,

If you have been around this blog already, you might know I have been working on a kid's book for the past year. It's been a great journey and I have learnt so much during this process: illustration, children's book writing, book printing, book design, etc. It's been great.

Now the book is 99% complete, laid out and pretty much ready to print. I have decided to self publish it, which means I will need a bit money to get it printed. And that's where you can help me!

Soon I will be starting a Pozible campaign, which I hope will help fund the printing cost of the book.

People (like you!) will be able to give some money, and generally as a reward they will get a copy of the book and some extras depending on how much they give. It's like a pre-sale.

I will launch the Pozible Campaign next week, and any help from that moment will be super welcome! If you want the book, you will be able to get it that way. If you don't have the money but you want to help, you can just share the campaign page around to your social network, that would be awesome.



Also, I have been working on Captain Blueberry official website, and it will go up very soon as well. It will be on www.captainblueberry.com.au

At the moment though, it is at the final draft stage but you can still check it out HERE.
