Boulet is a well-known cartoonist and illustrator in France, but I think he's pretty obscure in the English-speaking world. He's been posting a popular blog in comic form since 2004 (in French), but lately he's been going through the backlog and translating his comics into English, posting a new one every few days. He covers daily life, vacations, the work of a cartoonist, comics conventions, and random crap with cute illustrations and self-deprecating humor. Be sure to click the "REACT" or "Comments" link on each entry - he added a bonus comic to most of the entries at translation time. Happy New Year (2006)!

A few more favorites:
Geekette
Pixel quantum physics (with 8-bit Stephen Hawking!)
Parasites - excerpts from his work illustrating a science column for children
Bad kitty

Plus, some things I learned about by reading the translated blog:
Barbapapas, Donkey Skin, Cenovis (culinary uses thereof), Pucca and Shabadabada

These are incredible.

And the accuracy with which he depicts comic cons is amazing.

Heh.

The style reminds me of Tim Kreider.

...but a kinder, gentler, more manga-inspired Tim Kreider.
