Life on their own… The REAL battle of Hanukkah.

Life on their own… The REAL battle of Hanukkah.

They leave home. They live on their own. But they still want to celebrate the Holidays with you.  Thanks to all this new technology, you can still have the feeling that your family is together again. One kid is virtually next to you, the other one, only “virtually”. You are happy. It’s like when they were kids… Actually,  really, really, like when they were kids…

Forget the Maccabees! The REAL battle of Hanukkah always took place in your house.

life on their own. The REAL battle of Hanukkah.

Happy Father’s Day!

A cartoon for Father’s Day!

Back from the wonderful Festival de BD de Prévost, I’m busy preparing my talk for the Comic and Medicine Conference in Baltimore. Not enough time to prepare a new card for Father’s Day. And I won’t even be back home in time to celebrate it with my husband.

So, because I’m short on time, here’s a card from last year. I want to point out that this is not about my son. Not this time.

There’s also an older card that you can see on this page. My children were quite young, then. And so was I…

Bonne fête des Pères!

Bonne fête des Pères en BD!

De retour à Montréal après le merveilleux Festival de BD de Prévost, je suis maintenant occupée à préparer la conférence que je donne à Baltimore au Comics and Medicine Conference. Peu de temps pour préparer une nouvelle carte pour la fête des Pères… De plus, malheureusement, je ne serai pas de retour chez moi pour célébrer l’évènement avec le papa de mes grands enfants. Par manque de temps, je reprends donc ici la carte de la fête des Pères de l’année dernière. Petite précision, il ne s’agit pas de mon fils. Pas cette fois-ci… P.S. Il y en autre encore plus ancienne sur cette page-ci. Une bande dessinée-souvenir.

Bonne fête des Pères, papa!  Une histoire de la série: Ce sont des adultes, maintenant!.

Life on their own… And they get sick…

Out of the nest… almost!

Summer is over. Our young adults went back to their own life. Enjoying their freedom, far way from parents who too often seem to bug them on purpose.  And they can stay in bed as long ad they want… But, there’s one real bug…

Here’s a new cartoon in this series about young adults living on their own. I have reached this time in my life when young people all around me are leaving their house to go live in their own apartment.  This is so exciting for them. Friends, nieces, nephews, even my own kids!  And parents are left to deal with the empty nest syndrome, hoping their kids would call more often…

And then the phone rings…

Poor baby! Another cartoon from the series "Life on their own..."
