Vegetarianism

Don’t eat me, please…

So I became Vegetarian. Yes, i did. When asked why, i wish i could deliver a heated speech on how cruel it is to slaughter innocent creatures for pleasure, on how humans have a responsability toward the rest of the animal kingdom or on how amazing it is for you health; but i don’t.

I ‘d rather answer with another question : “Why do you eat meat?”

It is quite interesting the kind of answer people come up with : Culture, the food chain, etc. What i found though is that most people just don’t care.

I got exposed and was willing to try it out after asking myself the same question; also out of curiosity. I turned out not being able to feel comfortable eating meat after hearing about the impact a meat diet has on the world, so i stopped.

The Beginning of Thaurs

I once wrote a story, an epic adventure of two brothers on a quest to discover their origins, tame their new found powers and save their world.
I could not figure out what to do with that story. Expand it in a big fantasy trilogy like Lord of the Rings or The Mistborn saga? Transform it into the scenario of a RPG? A script for an animated movie? Serie?… And just as all the question rose, the story went into hibernation.
Today I made a huge step, the one that paves the way to a future where my fantasy stories don’t hibernate into oblivion. I inked the first four pages of the Serial Web-Graphic Novel I will launch in March: Thaurs. The story, that I started writing in 2007 was intended for an amateur RPG I was working on with the software RPG Maker XP. Since then, the quest of Meloon and his friends grew to be a vendetta against my habit of leaving projects unfinished.
Four pages are probably a tiny thing for the big time mangaka and cartoonist out there but I can’t help but be proud of myself.

So far so good, Now I need to keep on going.
