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.
