Hi folks !

Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Billy and I make comics and visual poetry by drawing, photocopying, collage and photoshop.

I just love how poetic moments can happen with text and image, I love how artistic accidents can turn into lovely jewels on the page or the screen and I also love how found little details on old scraps of paper can have a new life in the art I make.

The comics I make can get a little odd and dreamy, shapes become the characters and so does the text. My comics get abstract, trippy, intuitive, symbolic. Sometimes there are bunnies also !

My visual poetry is about language breaking free from letters and words and getting all over the page. I use collage and found scraps as well as photocopy manipulations to make my work. Static, noisy bits, alien glyphs all play a part !

I make little zines of my stuff that I like to share with people, usually in editions of ten, twenty, rare little paper vessels floating out there.

°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°

A little about me:

I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada where I've been drawing gigposters and making zines since the late 1980s. Later on, I started casting a wider net with mail-art, sending and receiving fun mail. I've collaborated with tons of other artists working in many different fields, music, installation, street art, performance. I tend towards experimentations and investigation so my various different styles come and go.....sometimes I spend a month making bunny paintings and spend the next month drawing abstract comics. Throw collage, mail-art, poetry, collecting found scrap paper all into the mix. Eight months later and I'm painting bunnies again ! I try to trust that process, letting me get swept away by a particular momentary interest.

Goals
$9 of $500 per month
When I reach my goal of $500 per month, I'll be able to invest in a personal copier and start publishing chapbooks and zines by the many artists (known and unknown) who inspire me in and around my global community - sharing hidden gems with others, planting wonderful seeds of art to inspire.
