#Les Mis Zine
thepiecesofcait · 3 days ago
Hello! just wanted to say, I got my link to the PDF of your Miserable Month and it looks fantastic! I'm so glad I got the preorder, there are definitely illos I missed and they are all so wonderful! Thanks for making them available this way!
Hello!
Thank you! I have been hoarding this ask for weeks because it brings me such joy to read - this little zine project has consumed so much of my life these past few months, and there’s definitely been moments I’ve wanted to walk away from it completely, BUT! I DIDN’T! And I am so so so proud of how everything has turned out!
Also - as of today all of the preorders are officially on their way! (Technically they have been for a fortnight, but I called in some help with posting to take the edge off of shipping rates between Australia and the US, and that leg of the shipping took a hot minute)
Everyone that ordered a copy should have received an email through Etsy with their tracking number by now, and they should be arriving within the next week or so! I am so excited for people to finally be getting their copies, and I am so so thankful for everyone that supported this project!
Once all the zines arrive at their new homes I’ll be listing my leftover copies on my Etsy store, so if anyone wanted one but missed out on the preorder window keep an eye out for that :)

Ok so why is it that Grantaire in modern AUs is always described as a painter???
Like in canon sure, like painting and sculpture were the only really respected art forms, and he does paint in canon I’ll give you that
But there’s so much more to art these days that he could be doing !!
Like if you headcanon that he makes posters for les amis, he could be doing printmaking, like block printing, screen printing, risographs and lithographs
He could be making zines!
Designing screen printed t shirts!
Sewing and painting custom clothing!
He could be an installation artist! A sculptor!
Show me Grantaire doing video art, VHS production, using film, making glitch art, doing photography
Show me animator Grantaire, digital illustrator Grantaire, Grantaire who has a shitty day job at a designing firm and takes commissions in his limited free time
Show me Grantaire doing social practice art, he’s a sociable man who spends a lot of time all across the city interacting with people
Not to project my own artistic practice, but he could be mixed media, pulling from all disciplines!
He could work with found objects!
He could do light projection!
Like LOOK tattoo artist Grantaire is already there, I’ve seen it done before, its perfect, that could be how he meets like Combeferre, Jehan, and Bahorel, he could have eponine apprenticing under him
There’s SO much art out there and so many different media’s and disciplines, there’s nothing wrong with painter grantaire, but as an artist there’s just so so many more options you could explore

It's them! So excited to finally share this layout from the romantic half of the @lesmiszine - it partners @permets-2's fantastic fic: tomorrow's sun hasn't risen (but our sneakers are tied and the city is wide) This piece was such break from my usual layout and I high key adore how it turned out!

Well well well if it isn't Hands Clasped Tight zine sharing time!
Here is one of the two illustrations I did - this one appears in the platonic half of the zine and goes alongside the wonderful found-family piece - Today We're Changing History - written by @fuckyeahlesmiserables
I had a lot of fun with this, and really enjoyed getting to work alongside the litany of the other fabulously talented contributors involved with the @lesmiszine <3
A huge thank you to everyone who purchased a copy!

A night at the cemetery with Jehan and Bahorel. Jehan is in rapture and a poem blooms from his lips.
This was my contribution for the 1st Hands Clasped Tight @lesmiszine with @estelraca who helped me brainstorm this scene 🖤

Is there a deadline to ordering the zine? Because I’m an idiot when it comes to ordering stuff and I don’t want to miss it if there might be a deadline!!!
Hello! What an excellent question, and one I definitely intended to include the answer to in my original post!
The Zine preorder window closes at midday on May 9 (GMT+8 timezone)
I will be rounding my stock orders up, and once all the preorders have made it to their new homes I’ll be listing the leftovers on my Etsy, so if you miss out on this round or the current timing will hit your budget too hard there will be another chance!

Guess who finally turned their Miserable(s) Month artworks into a zine which is officially as of right now available for PREORDER!
You can have it one of three ways!
A PDF Download;
An A5 physical copy of the zine; or
A bundle of goodies, featuring the zine + three A5 prints + a funky holographic Candlesticker!
Also! I filmed a time-lapse of how this cover came together to give a little look into the ink process I use. You can find that here!
I’ve been chipping away at this project for so long, and I’m so excited to finally be able to share these with y’all!

Okay, this might sound kind of weird, but I am absolutely OBSESSED with your drawing of 'disguise'. I don't know why, it's just... the proportions are perfect, the way each little part fits together, her expression, the red highlights... for some reason it just hit something really deep inside of me so thank you for that.
I always love hearing about people’s reactions to the different pieces from that series!
It was such an intensely busy time for me, and I didn’t get to really dwell much over finished pieces, but I’ve been looking back over them recently and Disguise is one of my favourites. The quote really hit me the minute I read it, and I’m glad to hear the drawing did it justice!
Fun treat, because I very rarely share unfinished pieces: here’s the digital draft for Disguise! (featuring the rough sketch on the right that locked in the direction for the whole piece)
Tumblr media
I did all my drafting in procreate then used a light box to transfer the key parts to watercolour paper for inking. This saved me so much time, since I could move and resize stuff super quick before committing to pencil on paper, and also I could play around with where my lightest and darkest parts would be to try keep decent contrast between overlapping parts.

I got the flowerbud bundle for the Les Mis zine :) for a prompt,,, college-age found family shenanigans?
(hannah ilyyyyy! i ran with the shenanigans but there’s definitely found family in there. hope u enjoy the zine!
 Grab a copy of the Hands Clasped Tight Les Mis zine HERE, drop me an ask, and I’ll write you ~100 words of a prompt of your choice!) 
“OKAY,” bellowed Grantaire across the mostly empty parking lot. “ARE YOU AREADY?” He had two hands on the back of the shopping cart, holding a manic grinning Courfeyrac in place as Grantaire shouted down the ramp to Bahorel. 
“READY!” Came Bahorel’s booming voice from the bottom of the ramp. 
Grantaire nodded. “Alright  - Jehan is filming. Bahorel is there to try to catch you. Neither Combeferre nor Enjolras nor Joly know we’re here.” Grantaire recounted. “Don’t die.” 
Courfeyrac laughed. “Bitch, when have I ever?”
Grantaire bapped Courfeyrac on the head from his place behind the shopping cart. “You ready, fly boy?” 
Grantaire couldn’t see his face, but he heard the excitement in Courfeyrac’s voice when he spoke. “I’m ready. But next time,” Courf said, adjusting his grip on the sides of the cart. “Get me drunk first.” 
Grantaire grinned. “ALRIGHT.” he shouted. “3 - 2 - 1 GO!” and sent the shopping cart full of Courfeyrac hurtling down the parking lot ramp with a shove. This was a great idea.

we’re gonna pretend this isn’t a good couple weeks late but you know that’s very on brand for me so
Here’s my preview for the ExR fic i wrote for the Hands Clasped Tight Zine! This fic features unsubtle fruit metaphors, a made up art history lesson, emojis, and a lot of unspoken gay thoughts (not necessarily in that order). 
I was SO lucky to get to work with the ICONIC @thepiecesofcait​ who brought my vague word-clutter into a truly STUNNING illustration that I stared at for so long when I was writers blocked (so really, she’s the one to thank for anything I did here). You can see a preview of that illustration (and more!) right here!
This zine has been such a communal labor of love and we’re all so proud to share it with you! It includes 130 gorgeous pages of fic and art (more previews available on @lesmiszine​!) and a purchase would mean supporting the independent creators who regularly provide the free content you come to Les Mis!Tumblr to enjoy. Additionally, half the proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders, an incredible non-profit currently doing essential work around the world to mitigate the effects of COVID-19. 
So really there’s no reason for u NOT to grab a copy over at our shop! 
(Also, send me an ask with which bundle u got and i’ll write u ~100 words based on ur prompt 👀👀)

Courfeyrac walked over to where Combeferre was sitting a little away from the rest and threw an arm around his shoulders. Combeferre, who was paying attention to the stars and nothing else, was startled by the action.
“Sorry,” Courfeyrac laughed. Combeferre swatted his arm in mock annoyance, so Courfeyrac gave him a quick kiss on the cheek in apology. “What are you looking at? Aliens?”
“If I had discovered aliens while you were setting up tents, you would have been the first to know.”
Here is a preview of my fic for the Les Mis Zine! It is a courferre fic titled Rare and Beautiful.
Half of the zines profits will be going to charity, so cheek it out! The link to purchase will be in my reblog because tumblr eats posts with links.
