13 - EGOCENTRISM

Hello Reader,

The public relations cell of this movement says "Equality", but facts show "Egocentrism" (and a lot more).

12 - Honey Badger Radio Illustrations : who's been naughty and who's been nice?

Hello Reader,

In order to celebrate Christmas on this blog, I decided to draw someting "sweet".

First of all, I wanted to show the guys who work in the shadow : James Huff, Phil and myself  (I let you find out who's who).
Why do we look like 10 years old children in this drawing? Because that's how I feel during this time of the year. Like a kid.

(Click on the pictures to enlarge them)








 In addition, I drew "Krampus". I'm not familiar with this character, so he might be different than the one you have in your head (he doesn't exist in Latin countries like France or Italy).
Even Santa's name is different. His name in France is Père Noël.

So, I made a funny Hard-Rock singer/Greek god PAN mixture.



Merry Christmas!

Joyeux Noël à tous et à toutes !

10 - Sketches, inked drawings, and shadowing

Hello reader,

Here is a sample of my method.

Usually, I  like to start my illustrations with a lot of sketches. I prefer to use down-maket paper during this step. The cheaper the better, because I noticed that I'm completely inhibited everytime I sketch on a sheet of good quality paper... it feels like a waste of resources. I need not to worry about the medium that I use in order to fully concentrate my attention on my drawings.
 
Then, when I'm happy with my sketches, I start the inking part. I use my computer for this, but I miss the sensations of a chinese brush and a crowquill when I go digital...
Paradoxically, it's a very relaxing time for me. I can ruin hours of work with just a few bad lines, and yet, it makes my stress vanish.

Finally, I add the shadows and the highlights. That's what gives a form its "taste", and its volume.

9 - Honey Badger Radio Illustrations : Bronies and The Shame Game

Hello Reader,

HBR will talk about a group of people that I didn't know : The Bronies (i.e. adult men who enjoy to watch the tv show "my little pony"... I suppose that this name is the contraction of Brother and Pony).

Frankly, I don't find these guys "weird" or "abnormal". But, I hope that the heterosexual ones will be informed that, in spite of the mainstream political correctness that seems to promote "tolerance" and "sensitivity", this behavior won't help them to find a date. (of course, if you are a MGTOW... to hell with these bullshits).

 HBR will talk about "pastimes", and the different reactions to it according to your sex (I don't use the word "gender"... I don't have a gender between my legs).

Hello Reader,

I'm drawing a couple of illustrations for a fairy tale written by Typhon Blue, from "a voice for men", and "honey badger radio". The end product will be a video (with the voice of TB, reading the story).

The title of this fairy tale is "the plow horse and the princess".

7 - Victimhood Contest

Hello Reader,

Victor Zen is one of my favorite youtuber. He has the ability to express complex thoughts with clarity and sincerity.
His latest video "white men are people too" deals with a phoenomenon that I noticed before : victimhood contest, and how this phenomenon modifies our perception of injustices/sufferings endured by other people . Here is the video :






And here is a little drawing that I made about it :

2 - Honey Badger Radio illustrations : How to be a creep.

Hello everyone,

Today is Halloween... which means absolutely nothing to me. 
Even if some malls try to import this tradition into France, they completely failed until now....
There are almost no pumpkins and orange stuff decorating the stores of my city, and I won't see any children dressed up as ghosts or monsters, walking in the streets, asking for candy tonight.


 Instead, people will visit cemeteries, bringing flowers and prayers for their Lost Loved Ones on November 2. The day for the dead, and all the Saints (La Toutsaint).
It's a quiet and private day. A day dedicated to family. 

But if you like horror movies, here's something for you. I made 3 versions of the same drawing from the movie "The Ring".



Which one do you prefer?

1 - Honey Badger Radio illustrations : Anita and the Scourge of the Girl Gamer

Hello Everyone,

I'm a gamer. Not a hardcore gamer - I used to be one - but I think I can say that I know video games pretty well. 
I was 11 when I discovered this world with my SEGA Master System, and I've never lost my interest for this medium until now. I'm still amazed by the imagination and the creativity of the guys working in this industry. This culture is part of my own, as well as Victor Hugo and Jacques Brel.

Actually, I introduced my girlfriend to this virtual world... with the help of HALO. 

It was one of these mutual enrichments that happen within a couple. I brought video games, mangas, Star Trek, etc , while she shared with me her love for foreign languages, baroque music, and many other things.  

I've never heard her complaining about misogyny in video games. Not once. 
Of course, she doesn't identify with Master Chief, but neither do I.
With time, she became a pretty good Spartan.
