I recently had the chance to design the album cover for Tuk Tuk first EP, a Cardiff based jazz trio ignited by Joe Northwood.
It took me a good few weeks to allow myself to write down about my latest illustration project, to reconnect with the reasons behind a very personal but surely universal representation of what progress can do. Progress because of determination. Determination because of passion. Passion because of love. Love because it’s included in the base package of all human being.
Just want to give a big warm hug to Paris, France, the world right now. All our planet need is love, nothing else.
Another year, another surprise card treat for my sweetie pie, featuring the most comfortable mare on the planet.
It’s been a little while (…like 4 years) since I’ve played the Illustration Friday game, so here is my interpretation of this week’s topic: Stuffed.
Entirely sketched during my traditional Sunday visit to the Penarth pier and initially designed to be the Charactron of the day (Pepper face), I realised that:
- a pepper can be stuffed
- a monkey can be stuffed by a pepper
Ideal combination. So, for the first time ever, I fancied up this Charactron (added colours) and ended up with exactly that: “un singe bleu qui se mange un bon poivron rouge”.
I find life events a natural source of inspiration for illustration projects. I’ve covered quite a few birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and births with drawings, and as one of my close friend just had a baby boy I couldn’t resist but to do it again.
I’ve started this blog 7 years ago because I needed a way to share and develop my creative work and personal thought. It actually helped me define the next version of myself.
The chicken is back in the kitchen for a double celebration.
Hi there, it’s pretty much time for an update on the future of this blog! Soon.
But right now it’s time for the Olexandratron! The little mission I’ve accepted about 10 days ago was to write the long version of my wife’s name – Olexandra – (there is a short version but I was up for a challenge) by dedicating the next 9 Charactrons to each letter.
