Drawn between Monday and Friday (10 pages)
Actually on Friday I even drew a strip for marginal I’m posting here. It’s approx a 1/2 hour work (storyboard text and publication all included)
I don’t want to think I nailed my new workflow yet. I’ve made a solid – 2 pages a day / 1 chapter a week – during 3 weeks now. But I still feel it’s a challenge. I hope I can either make it my daily routine, either slow down a bit and sleep correctly.
As of today if I’m not working (I mean my desk job) I’m drawing. Never got that dedicated before. I’m realizing now that I reached a point where even if I’m exhausted and can’t focused on usual stuff anymore, if I got a pen in my hands I can still draw.
Miss niece and nephew !
I’m one day earlier than I planned. One page got postponed for another release…
This is the second chapter I do in a one week deadline…as always it’s done aside from work, so basically I draw at lunch break and nolife in the evening till 2AM…
Nights are averaging 4h30 of sleep and I have no time to do whatever it is that is not draw a page of WASTE. I don’t even do chara design, I just go with the flow.
And on top of all, I Slacked off workouts a lot…
not to mention I’d like to do videos about making of like before, comic strips to joke around with readers etc…
Handling this on the long run seems destructive to me…I’m thinking of doing a release every 10 days (or every other week) rather than every week.
Still need to find my balance.
But for now, chapter 14 here we go !
This is a new speed record…chapter 12 is 11 pages long, like chapter 11, but I drew this faster (Begun storyboarding last Sunday, finished today, Saturday…this means it’s my first one week release !!!)
The workload is huge and the pace is really intense. I hope I can get faster and get nights longer than 5 hours again in a near future.
However, Tomorrow scripting chapter 13 !
Chapter 11 is done, it was scripted, story boarded and drawn in 9 days for 11 pages. I think this is my fastest yet. It doesn’t seem that fast, but I only draw at lunch break and at night so to me this is very good. I hope I can get faster though.
However, chapter 9 has not been released yet, here is the idea:
I want to synchronize my release on all platforms : spectrum, webtoon, facebook and this website.
They are all more or less advanced in the story publishing, for example Spectrum is at the end of chapter 8 while webtoon is at the beginning of chapter 5.
People sometimes go between a platform and the other and get spoiled. Which is not cool.
So since webtoon is the one that needs to catch up, I’m gonna wait for it to reach the others before publishing again.
So this post is for records (about when did chapter 11 really get done) and keeping you guys updated.
So here is the issue,
I’ve recently begun publishing on webtoon (since April 24 2017). and it has quickly taken the main place* in my publishing plateforms.
The thing is I publish page by page over there and so I’m still nearly at the end of chapter 4.
But as of tonight, I just finished drawing chapter 10 which goes early access so chapter 9 becomes public and so chapter 11 becomes very early.
However, as of today my community on webtoon is without comparison, the most alive / growing / supportive. So it has absolute priority and I feel like not releasing chapter 9 now and wait for webtoon to catch up with it, which is around november IIRC…
Those are my actual thoughts…
*: I tried webtoon just like a lot of other platforms…and I got surprised when I published my first page I saw a little “6” aside the subscribers logo. First I thought it was as fake as instagram where subscribers come and go. And I thought it was not minored when people left. But I soon realized the number is live and people really read what you publish. It’s not like on facebook which is not meant for comics, people won’t just fetch viral stuff. They will read your comic from the beginning if they are seduced. And that helped building a community around WASTE, which is the nicest I’ve ever had until now.
And here the 2000 subs strip I made for my webtoon subscribers :
Following the new production cycle:
I finished chapter 9 today, so it goes early access.
This unlocks chapter 8 for free.
And then chapter 10 enters the very early access stage.
Follow the big red buttons I’ve updated in the side bar of the site to read them !
I hope you’ll enjoy those releases, I give it my all !
As you may know latest chapter released is chapter 7. However I’m here to announce chapter 9 O__o
As you may know all patrons have access to chapter 8 though.
And badass patrons have access to chapter…9
However please note: chapter 8 is finished and polished. Chapter 9 is not, it is a WIP I update every 24 to 48 hours so you can see all my progress as I work on it from storyboard roughs to finished pages. Some pages may move, disappear or be added. This is especially interesting for people who are interested in writing/drawing their own story.

On may 23rd I celebrated 300 subscribers on Webtoons (click to read the colored comic strip I made !).
The community around WASTE is growing faster and faster. That’s really uplifting.
If you go check it out and like it, please subscribe as well and rate WASTE so it’s more visible !
It’s been something like 3 weeks I begun posting WASTE on webtoon.
The subscribers’ number is growing steadily and it’s really motivating to be able to see it.
I’m posting one page a day since the beginning of WASTE. Since I generally produce one page every 2 days, it should catch up with the latest release soon.
I’d rather have it this way than in one single post, as I’m heading toward continuous release from now on, it’s a good opportunity to experiment that kind of pace.
Here is a strip I made to celebrate 100 subscribers, I shall soon reach 200 and I didn’t think of anything to celebrate it yet ! Btw this is my first color success. By success I mean, not repulsive.
However, as I said, there is a lot of change coming. First and foremost, continuous publication (1 page a day rather than 1 chapter every X).
Also I’ve been able to pace myself, I can do 1 small chapter (10/15 pages) a month in “no-life-after-day-work” mode.
So in fact chapter 8 is finished by now. But I’m not releasing it yet. Why ? Because…Patreon. Here is the idea, I want to give something special for anybody pledging for me on patreon, so I decided it would be a 1 chapter lead. When people get to read chapter 7, any of my patron can read chapter 8, and some of them even can read the Work In Progress of chapter 9…so to be able to launch my patreon correctly I need to have that lead over public release.
Chapter 8 should be released on June 13 if everything goes as during the 3 last months.
For the curious, my patreon is at
