GRANDPAPIER’s goal is to gather different comic artist we like under the same roof and to give online readers access to what they might not found in their local bookstore.
GRANDPAPIER is a project by l’employé du Moi, a comics publisher based in Brussels, Belgium. We are not looking at webcomics as an ultimate goal for comics but rather as a way to use the Internet as a promotion tool for artworks we like. Building an online community that will help newer comic artist to get known. It’s also a great way for us to meet new people and eventually make new books.
This website is our third online experience after the employé du Moi
online diaries and 40075km. Our online diaries gathered up to 15 people who published drawings and comics online at a daily rate. In the course of six years, some of theses diaries were printed in books, published under l’employé du Moi label. ( Rubiah from Sacha Goerg, Lointain from Claude Desmedt, Michel from Pierre Maurel, ...)
40075km.net was a web portal created in 2005 and open to anyone who wished to share
comics pages on the topic of travelling. This project which
lasted a good year ended with the publication of a 600 pages anthology.
GRANDPAPIER is a logical follow up of these 2 projects.
GRANDPAPIER is not a blog or a new facebook. We don’t want to replace cartoonist websites either. It’s just one of thoses places where
you can find lots of good comics and drawings.
