Do you have a translation of the "I have no husband and I shall never marry" passage? Thank you!

Hi Anon! Thanks for your question. Here is that quote from Phantom in Leroux’s original, and my translation of it:

« C’est un engagement que je ne vous demande point, et c’est une promesse que je ne vous ferai pas! prononça la jeune fille avec fierté. Je suis libre de mes actions, monsieur de Chagny; vous n’avez aucun droit à les contrôler et je vous prierai de vous en dispenser désormais. Quant à ce que j’ai fait depuis quinze jours, il n’y a qu’un homme au monde qui aurait le droit d’exiger que je lui en fasse le récit: mon mari! Or, je n’ai pas de mari, et je ne me marierai jamais! »

Translation:

"That is a pledge that I do not ask of you, and it is a promise that I shall not make you!" spoke the young woman proudly. "I am a free agent, monsieur de Chagny; you have no right to control my actions and I will ask that you desist henceforth. As for what I have done during the past fortnight, there is only one man in the world who would have the right to demand that I give him an account: my husband! Well, I have no husband, and I shall never marry!"

Patreon?

I would like to test the waters to see if people would be willing to support my comics through Patreon.

So please comment and let me know so I can gage the interest.

At the moment I do not have a mode of income.  I would love it if people were willing to donate in order to support my comics. I know that is not possible for many financially though.

If not that, does the idea of Brujaha or Phantom merchandise interest you?

Portrait Botero style

I’ve been deleting old posts and came upon this, my very first post on tumblr.  
Story time!
This was for an assignment to paint a self portrait in the style of an artist we had selected for us. My professor choose Fernando Botero for me.
 I remember during critique there was a guy who asked if it was difficult to make myself look this way.  I replied that the photo-manipulating wasn’t very difficult. I was confused since it’s clearly not that smooth of an edit.
I later realized he meant was it upsetting for me a skinny person to present an image of myself as fat.
So here is my response to that.
Please enjoy a picture myself and Gidget Pawtunia in all our sweet Botero style!
