right now

i am in a town in italy where there is the largest international festival of street performers

i took the train here. it cost me ten euros and fifty-five euro cents

i slept on the ground in a park where there were people sleeping in tents. there were maybe six other people i could see sleeping on the ground in the general area i was in.

what this post is really about:

i have worked on a lot of projects with my friend olivier bherer-vidal. most of what i did is write english versions of his graphic stories which are in french.

there is a website here which is about one of the graphic stories that is going to be released tomorrow, friday august 28th, at an event in quebec. if you understand french, you will be able to read the website. if not, you will be able to recognize my name on the website and maybe also some words which are similar to english words.

one of the other projects is an english/finnish version of a french graphic story about when olivier spent 49 days in finland. there is going to be a comics festival in finland this autumn at which will be this english version that i made.

if anyone who speaks english and is not going to be in quebec or finland is interested in buying a copy of these graphic stories, you can email me and then i will talk to olivier and see about how to do that. it will be fun.
