New Blog

I have started a new blog called SylvieKomix.  For now, it contains all pertaining to Mrs. Aplux's story.  She is so insistent on staying over that I thought she deserved her own space:

I will try to post every weekday.  Tomorrow Mrs. Aplux will celebrate the day!

Later Work

In later years, Mrs Aplux embroidery work often took an abstract feel, mostly inspired by nature's beautiful shapes.

Peaceable Kingdom

This ancient piece from the National Museum of Handiwork  is a favorite of Mrs. Aplux and has inspired many of her own pieces.

Early Work

Here is a sample from Mrs. Aplux's early embroidery work.  It was inspired from a piece she saw at the National Museum of Handiwork that I will post tomorrow.

The story continues.  My experimentation with Photoshop and colors too.  Next panel?  May take a few days.

Brief Encounter

I go on neighborhood walks.  A lot of dogs do too.  I love watching them.  Here I felt inspired by a very joyful meeting.

Here is Mrs. Aplux at one of her favorite activities. Mrs. Aplux is becoming clearer and clearer.  Her story will start soon.

Mrs. Aplux on her Walk

Here is Mrs. Aplux again.  Having acquired some hair.  On her way to the library (to get a new comics, of course.)  Themes explored with the queen are re-visited with this odd little character.  I find her less intimidating and hope to develop her story little by little.
