Je viens de finir de mettre l’encre sur les deux pages. Cliquez sur Histoires d’escaliers pour voir les trois premiÃ¨res cases.
I just finished the inking on the two pages. Go to the section Stairway Stories to see the first three frames.
I posted a new page my Stairway Stories series. It’s the conclusion to the previous page in which the children argue about digits and addresses. This story is based on something that happened to me when I was a child. My address really only had three digits back then and…still only has three digits now.

Stairway Stories consists, for the most part, of a collection of twelve one-page stories featuring two French-speaking children, Doudou and Danny, growing up in Montreal in the late 1950s. In those years, public schools in Montreal, like almost everywhere in Quebec, were religious, usually Catholic for those whose native language was French.Â Boys and girls were in separate classrooms and, often, in different schools. However, Doudou and Danny are next-door neighbors and, even though theyâ€™re entering school, it doesnâ€™t prevent them from continuing to discover life side by side. And because they live in Montreal, their stories often have, as a backdrop, a stairway.
I grew up in Montreal and I lived most of my live in a beautiful French neighborhood called Villeray. Then, many years ago now, I moved to the United States. This is why the last stories in this book are inspired by my life in California, in the heart of Silicon Valley.
