In the interest of keeping Pepper&Carrot free, I've decided to take on subtle product placement.

@davidrevoy Finally, a sustainable approach to art!

I’ll continue reading later. Right now i feel a sudden urge to go shopping.

@davidrevoy Now you got me investigating if all your older comics already have subtle product placement. Thanks for the april fools.

@davidrevoy Penguins love Kernel log flakes; yum!
(This reminds me of the 'placements' in Wallace & Grommit; things like their Smug fridge)

@davidrevoy reste à savoir où se procurer ces génialissimes produits !🤣

@davidrevoy maybe it won't be long until we actually see this in commercial videogames? :flan_sad:

@davidrevoy j'ai terriblement soif de cette bonne eau d'avion maintenant, c'est malin ! 👿

@davidrevoy
Dear Sir, I like to buy all books in Hardcover edition, but the shop requires an account. Is this the only way to buy your books?

I am a data protection enthusiast and I feel scared to make accounts for just one purchase.

Sorry bothering you and thanks a lot!

@tpheine @davidrevoy It's the only way at the moment to purchase English hardcovers. There are other versions available here under the "Shop" page, but they're in other languages:

Hope this helps!

@davidrevoy "Before we start this episode I'd like to talk about my sponsor, NordVPN"

@davidrevoy pour le coup, je suis mitigé car, malgré la parodie, on identifie sans souci chaque marque originelle. Ce qui, en soit, fait de la pub gratuite pour la vraie marque. Je dirais donc que le détournement est bien fait mais que ça entretien sans le vouloir cette société consumériste qui nous tue.

@jerry_wham Oui, je suis d'accord. C'est d'ailleur un soucis de la parodie en générale; ça cite souvent le mal qu'on essaie de tourner en ridicule, et d'une certaine façon, ça lui fait hommage sans le vouloir.
Mais bon, j'adore la parodie et j'ai une grande confiance dans le pouvoir du ridicule et dans l'intélligence de l'audience surtout que mes détournements en disent long sur mon rapport à ces marques et ça, c'est peut-être le message le plus important du truc.
Mais merci pour le rappel! 😉

@davidrevoy these products and companys are great. 👍 I like to support them. 🥰 Where can I buy those products? 😇😁🤣

@davidrevoy Wow, this is an early Easter egg hunt! Some of them really are subtle.

@davidrevoy I love this. Sorry and Moneyzon are the best in my opinion! ❤️

@davidrevoy
Actually, if you disclose sponsorship and affiliate links in the text below the comics (on your website at least - not sure what to do on social media) I would be perfectly fine with this.

@RyunoKi Given the readership, this would probably lead to @davidrevoy spending 80% of his time arguing with people about the various evil deeds of the companies involved, and only 20% actually drawing 🫠

@kgerloff
Can't be helped.

Evil companies outnumber the good ones.

Donations are fine, but hardly cover the costs of living.

The alternative of finding a day job would lead to less time drawing, too.

Either way, it's a choice between a rock and a hard place.

Now that it's April 2nd, I think we can take a serious look at this. I actually have no qualms about such a thing, if the relationships are open (ie it says sponsored and where).

Plenty of artists are using Patreon and crediting their patrons. An advertisement can be unobtrusive and certainly doesn't make a work less Free-as-in-Freedom.

I do think disclosure is key, and there's a moral aspect of advertising to children, but on its face, I think ads that don't track us are ok.

@davidrevoy Moneyzon xD I love the little satire details referencing big techs.

@davidrevoy

Les illustrations sont magnifiques (comme quasiment toujours), elles sont disponibles sans la blague ?

@lienrag Merci! Oui, ce sont des cases de la BD; les hautes resolutions plates en JPG sans pub sont ici: peppercarrot.com/fr/files/all-

@davidrevoy Yeah 😋 j'ai fait pareil, y'en a plein mon dernier album ☢️ #yphilmusic
