Drawing / Automn / Large size / Working outdoor listening to music

7 September 2016

Here is the current method :

I draw by pieces/fragments : a large size paper is folded as a map, so that I can take it wherever I go, as I often work outside, always listening to music, it prevents me from thinking too much. These drawings are in progress.

Here are some smaller sizes-tests-mess of colors, a possible variation to explore, once size questions will be adjusted. I work slowly, ’cause I am still learning bookbinding, and it takes time to get the right equipment. Hell no, I don’t get distracted 🙂

Slowly but surely…

20 April 2016

Some drawings-paintings in progress, made with Pilot pen and acrylic inks, on watercolor paper “Centenaire” 300g/m2, 56 x 76 cm.
When it comes to colors, it becomes a propper mess, but I am focusing on primary colors these days, then I hope that it will help to clarify-balance-relieve, etc…
At the same time, I am looking for exhibitions in Lille, but it is not that easy. I hope that I will find something for September. It takes time, but I have plenty of.

DIY Cultures 2015 / London

13 May 2015

Happy to take part in this event about DoItYourself, which will take place on the 24th of May 2015 in London. Blimey, it’s in less than 15 days and I am running laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate…

I am working on a new collection of drawings called “Fromage de Fête” which follows on from  “Fromage de Tête”, but as I am in a better mood, I have changed a letter in the tittle.  I make the bookbinding, we will see how it works, but it’s a tad annoying to try to be neat. Here are some pictures of the work in progress : inside plates will be printed with my big laser, and the cover, if everything goes well, will be in fabric, a kind of silk which slip under your finger.
