Hi, I'm Guillaume Delacour. Please be kind if my english is not perfect because I'm a french professional illustrator and comics artist. If you're not used to french comics, you have to know that there's a huge comics production in France, where we call it « bande dessinée ». We're certainly on the world podium with USA and Japan.
Many of our comics are published in hard cover books which are called « albums ».



I'm writer and illustrator of an « albums » serie titled « Ariane Dabo – la lance opale de feu » - « Ariane Dabo – the fire opal spear » in english. Three 50 pages volumes are already published in France by YIL edition and I'm actually working on the 4rth. I'm doing all of the work : writing the story, doing the layout, drawing and coloring. Layouts and drawings are made on paper, and coloring and lettering are made on computer and graphic tablet.
You can get more about Ariane Dabo on the blog: arianedabo.blogspot.fr (most in french but I'll write more often in english from now on).



Volume 1 « la lance opale de feu » (« the fire opale spear ») was published on september 2013.
Volume 2 « l'ordre du sceptre de Baal » (« the order of Baal's scepter ») was published on january 2015.
Volume 3 « la cité perdue de l'Atlas » (« the lost city of the Atlas ») was published on june 2016.
Volume 4 « la main d'Orphée » (« Orpheus hand ») is scheduled for the start of 2018.

And I hope the serie will not end there. I'm already thinking of volumes 5 and 6.
And I'm planning two series of spin-offs which will take place after volume 4. The two first volumes of these spin-offs are written and I began the layouts. But I won't draw them. I've recruted two other wonderful artists who will work on these.



Today there's no english version of Ariane Dabo's adventures. And that's why I'm on Patreon. I want the world to discover Ariane Dabo and my work. And it will be difficult with only french version.
By patronizing my work on Patreon, you will help me save time to work on Ariane Dabo #4 and on the translation of the 3 published volumes. Today I can't spend all my time working on Ariane Dabo. In France it's difficult for a comics artist to live from your creations if you're not a bestseller. Ariane Dabo is a success for the independant comics editor YIL edition, but it's not enough for me to live on it. Only a few comics stars in France can live decently from their work. For all others it's a necessity to work on other projects. That's why I have to spend most of my time looking for clients and orders to work on other comics and illustrations.
Thus I created a short comic (4 pages) about the 1918 ceasefire, and I'm actually working on another comic about the lung cancer. In illustrations I've worked on posters or book covers, and recently for the website infinite-rpg.com. I'm also in touch for a boardgame project.

All these projects are wonderful and I love working on. But I have so much ideas to develop Ariane Dabo universe and other personal projects that I need more time. And time is money, as you know.

I want to translate existing Ariane adventures in english, at first on Patreon, and in a second time I could publish them on paper books with my editor YIL edition (he's ready for it!). For this I need to gather a community of supports and readers to show him that it could work.

So, are you ready to enter the world of Ariane Dabo, the fire opal spear ?

Good beginning ! Now I know you're interested in my work, thank you. With this further motivation I can translate and release at least one Ariane Dabo page per week and continue working on the following of the serie.

C'est un bon début ! Maintenant je sais que vous êtes intéressés par mon travail, merci. Avec cette motivation supplémentaire je peux traduire et publier au moins une planche d'Ariane Dabo par semaine et continuer de travailler sur la suite de la série.
