-He can't see much, said the cat. A water lily, maybe.
-Yes, said the mouse, he waits for it to come up so he can kill it.

Foam of the daze - Boris Vian


-Il ne peut pas voir grand chose, dit le chat. Un nénuphare, peut être.
-Oui, dit la souris, il attend qu'il remonte pour le tuer.

L'écume des jours - Boris Vian

très belle repésentation de l'histoire, ça me donnerais preque envie de relire le livre
je ne me souvenais pas de ce patit dialogue mais il semblerait que ce soit le nénuphare qui soit arrivé à tuer en quelque sorte ce pauvre Colin

et puis sinon c'est magnifique!

Merci =)

C'est vraiment la toute fin du bouquin, Chloé est enterrée sur l'ile cimetière, Colin a tout perdu, fortune, amis et amour. Il devient fou en quelques sorte et passe son temps à surveiller l'étang pour se venger.

La souris ne supportant pas ce spectacle, elle demande au chat d'être mangée =)

I remember I had to read this for school (they should really forbid making us read books, because there are books you would actually be liking if it wasn't for the forced reading reminding tone of them). The first time I read it, somehow I didn't like it. Second time I read it, it made me cry like hell. He pictures their story in such an absurd way, but when you get into it, suddenly the events seems so real and clear to you. You'd really like to believe that Chloe's pulmonary tuberculosis is really made of flowers growing inside her lungs. Anyway, I just wanted to say that your artwork is amazing, as always.

In the story, his wife died because of a water lily has growth in her lung. A beautiful story, very human and absurd.

Amazing work! You've always been great and doing environments and characters. However, I have one criticism: the man's pose seems a bit stiff somehow.

Reminds me of an episode form Roman Dirge's Leonore where all life on earth has been destroyed and in the end there's only one killer robot left. He's walking around feeling lonely and longing for some company when suddenly a happy bunny bursts out from ground saying it wants to be his friend. But just by instinct the robot kills the rabbit immediately.
Damn...

this reminds me of a short story we had in french class. unfortunately I forgot its name. It was about a man who shot his wife after she left him bcs he thought hshe had another man. then he met his wife again and he realized that he had shot another woman but he already sent a letter to the police in which he admits that he shot her and he tries to get out of this business by sending tons of similar looking letters with advertise in them, so they wont find the real letter, but they found it.. maybe you know it? xD
