I'm the manager of a french forum which is creating an story about the end of the word and a new construction.
If you like to join us to illustrate it or to manage a character.. you can register and present yourself (in english) on my forum.
In French "Register" is "S'inscrire" ....
You can go directly there : http://humanoide.forumactif.net/presentez-vous-f8/
Then you can create a new thread clicking on "Nouveau"
See you if you want to meet french artist in france...
