Through the daily life of Amalia, Aude Picault humorously recounts the pressures and the mental load that her heroine has to face every day.

A comic strip that challenges at a time when our society increasingly advocates performance and efficiency both at home and at work.


Aude Picault is an author of comic strips that we are starting to know well.

It will also have the honor of an exhibition in March during the next Angoulême festival.

With her very simple, very refined and very sensitive line, she has published a lot of very personal graphic stories, which say a lot about her, but also about the society in which we live. 

This is how in her album "Ideal Standard", she had told the existential questions of a thirty-year-old, which had also earned her the Artemisia Prize for Humor.

Humor, feminism, ecology too: three elements that we find in her new album.

A daily chronicle that tells us about an awareness.

That of a woman confronted with the pressure of yield and performance, the mother of a blended family confronted with the risk of exhaustion that awaits contemporary Western societies.
