"2 ANS D'HP"
A graphic novel written by Marie Dufour
and illustrated and edited by me,
“2 ans d'HP” is an illustrated autobiography
of the author, Marie (aka Marduf), and illustrated by Juliette Viger (aka Java).
Through a series of light-hearted and reflective
anecdotes, we follow Marie's every day from when she was a school teacher
in a psychiatric hospital.
From the unexpected turns of events Marie could get from her students to the routine an educator has in such an establishment, we get a sense of an underrated reality many of us experience in society every day, when living around or working with mentally challenged children or people.
“2 ans d'HP” was entirely crowdfunded and self-published through the Belgian crowdfunding platform "Éditions Sandawe".
The following illustrations are samples from the whole book.
“2 ans d'HP” is currently available in FRENCH as an ebook on Amazon.
The idea of “2 ans d'HP” was born in 2018, in Berlin, where Marduf joined forces with Java to finally manifest by all means this project she truly wished to be.
The two friends worked over a year to set up a crowdfunding
and finalize the book in 2019.
