Sky Rover Winner of Gene Day Award 2017!

I woke up this morning and it felt like Christmas! Sky Rover is this year winner of the Gene Day Award for Canadian self-published comic books. I am so grateful for this recognition of my work. This was quite unhoped for.

I want to thank the Joe Shuster Awards organisers and juries for their time and dedication.

Congratulations all the winners of the other categories and nominees!!! It’s crazy to see how much great comics are made here in Canada.

Everyone, congratulations!!!



The 2017 Joe Shuster Award Winners

News – August


Hi!! Nunumi here! So many things happened this summer I want to share with you.

Last week-end was Otakuthon in Montreal, the biggest anime convention in East Canada. I had the pleasure of having been invited to this great event and it was my first time as guest artist and panelist. I met so many great people and the experience was priceless.

I was so scared at first of giving a 60 minutes panel, but everyone was so kind and understanding, it became a very enriching experience.

Also, Sky Rover is in nomination for a Joe Shuster Award, in the Gene Day (self-publisher) category!!! Joe Shuster is one of the biggest Canadian awards for comics. The winner will be announced, right before I leave for Japan in September.

Talking about Japan, this is what I am preparing for big time at the moment. Many things to plan! I am trying to figure out some meetings, and also what to attend at the Japan Media Arts Festival which will be held from the 16th to the 28th of September.

I will be in Japan for a month, and hope to officially start my next comic project there too.

Sky Rover chosen as Jury Selection for the 20th Japan Media Arts Festival

I have the immense pleasure to announce Sky Rover was chosen among the Jury Selection in the Manga category of the Japan Media Arts Festival. It was an extraordinary joy for me to be among the nominees, and an even greater one to be part of the selected works.

Japan Media Arts Festival is an annual festival held by Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs since 1997. Awards are given in four categories: Art, Entertainment, Animation and Manga.

This selection holds a lot of meaning for me, as many of my artist heros either got awarded or selected in this festival through the years.

This honor will forever strenghen my resolve to become a better, stronger and more prolific comic artist.

I want to thank the members of the jury for carefuly distilling the enormous amount of work submited again this year. They also wrote detailed critiques of their overall appreciation of the year’s submissions. From this unique vintage point, they generously share their insight with us. I strongly recommand reading those critiques to anyone interested in the current state of Animation, Manga, Entertainment and Art in general.

I want to congratulate every award winners and also all the other Jury Selection this year.

With this renewed resolve, I now go back to my drawing table!

See you soon!

I am barely back home from last week-end Comiccon in Quebec City. Thank you to everyone who visited! Your encouragement are very touching and it means a lot. For those who got Sky Rover’s book at the Comiccon, you’ve already seen this page, but for my internet reader, we still have a few weeks before Sky Rover’s first story comes to an end.

The book will be on sale online once it is all published here. With a few bonuses and a sneak peek to my next project, only available in the book or via my Patreon subscription.

Again thank you!
