10/19 It's raining otoko

Here is another "Shoes Story".
 (Gosh I might be sick...)

This is one strip I draw while ago, when it was shinning EVERYSINGLEDAY without any exception.
I went to buy shoes in a store, when I ran into a clerk who asked me If I would like to pay the equivalent fee of thoses shoes (I was buying) to make it waterproof .
(Only thanks to a spray I must say...)

I just laughed at him so loud saying it haven't been raining for a while, 
which was truely true.
(That was back in summer and even now, october 24th the weather remains curiously great)

This (sorcerer disguised in) man just told me this :
"Yeah but you never know, It can begin in no time, 
and your shoes are Buckskinned, that would be such a pity"...

3 minutes after I had left the shop It began raining as Hell (if such things could possibly occur)

So, now I am sure, Japanese sellers have this ''extra skills'' to make you do or buy things, 
and some more extras to punish you, if you dare do not.

(The real tragedy in this story is:
After two days with those shoes I realised I have been too much enthousiastic about the size...
Unfortunately meaning what it means, they are faaaaar right now...)

Rainy Kisses

10/08 Yeah, taking a 41 is a serious matter.

Hello there!

(Said the girl who was away for the past 2 months.)

"In Japan, taking a 41 is just impossible, 41 sized shoes doesn't exists just like doesn't exists bamboos forest in Egypt, dinosaurs in this 21th century or Landscape gardens on Mars"

("Err...Sumimasorry...why is it written 37 AND XL inside the shoes?....Ah because that is the same thing?...Well.... )

"So I find myself wearing THIS for almost 3 months"

(for weddings, funerals, interviews...Yepee-we-dont-care)
(Sole disappeared halfway)

so very perfectly UGLY mother of ugliness

So, once back to France .....

"In 2 weeks..."
"...20 pairs of shoes"
(16 drawn, 4 too shy to appear on the picture)

"And to my friends accompanying me shopping I gently said"

("I have the right to 23 KG of luggages Which I can use AS I WANNNNNNT (get the hell out of my face)")

"-Have you seen, she just neglected us, beloved blog readers, for almost 2 months and then she comes up with a 'Hello there'!
-That's not the worst, she have been travelling  she's saying that plenty of things happened into her life but she's sharing a sketch about shoes...
-How pitiful!

       Those would be some remarks I'd deserve to be said! :D

       That have been a long time indeed, and for real so many things happened. And as I always say I'll let you know the whoooole details, but this time that's for real, I make the promise: I won't escape anymore.
      So I just posted this drawing (to keep you posted haha :D) as a way to say: I'm back~! Tadaima !! as they would say here.
       I am back to work, back to strange beautifulaswellascreepy weather, to half dead drunk people on the streets, unbelievably illogical but sometimes funny rules, back to "normal".

     I Just post this to make you keep patient until I can introduce you "a better me" (throughout posts of course, there is no real "better me" : ) ) posts that I'll share with you soon enough I hope!

       This little story (the drawing up) relates one of my last days in France.
When packing and thinking of  what I'll need once I'll be back.
The answer was quite obvious to me: 41 sized shoes and EXCLUSIVELY this.

       I was finally about to take my revenge on this Japanese society were even Devil puts on a 38.

I decided then: shoes were gonna be the VIP travellers of my next suitcase, business class and champagne on board. I guess I just didn't knew where and when to stop this awkward shoes-fixation...

       So this is, indeed, just a casual way to say Hello, I am back. So please, stay Tuned!

       (By the way I dedicate this quite humble drawing to my bro Dhia, which was the first one seeing reading it, opening my sketchbook he said so-very lackadaisical: " Yeah. Ok. That's funny" Dhia's seal of Approval. Priceless. ; ) Dry wit guys are gonna rule the world, I can tell. )
