Liberation

, , , ,

Cycles, life cycles, activity cycles, it’s all very circular and this is not the first time I hear myself thinking I want to go back sketching on paper rather than on my old and scratchy Nintendo DS screen. I had enough and, during my last Eurostar trip, I’ve started enjoying my new Moleskine and fine Bic more than I expected.

Again, I love you paper, so much.

Good vibes

, ,

Back in April I submitted my first entry for an illustration competition: London Cloud Ride for the Cycling in London Competition.

Yesterday I delivered the pictured framed artwork to the Association of illustrators as it will be part of the Cycling in London exhibition at the London Transport Museum from the 5th of July to the 22nd of August 2010.

It was unexpected and it feels just amazing to have a first professional recognition about my illustration work as well as serving a sustainable cause.

Again, Thank you.

Step by step

, ,

After 21 months of sketching, wondering, blogging, doubting and learning, a lot, I’m more than happy to announce the launch of my first online illustration portfolio.

It might sounds (smell?) cheesy but I really want to thanks everyone who supported me during the past couple of years: family, friends, colleagues and even people I don’t know :) So you know, I’m excited to go ahead.

Thank you.

Illustropeur

, , ,

3 ans et demi que je suis professionnellement développeur web à plein temps après 6 ans d’études pour le devenir. Soit environ 10 ans de pseudo-réflexion sur mon avenir professionnel sans vraiment avoir fait le “choix” d’en être là ou j’en suis aujourd’hui professionnellement.

Il y a 2 mois, Aurore (mon indispensable moitié), m’a conseillé d’essayer la méthode de Nick Williams pour – littéralement –  “devenir un entrepreneur inspiré”. Traduction: trouver le boulot pour lequel on est fait. Passé le côté business-oriented/cheesy/chaotique du site qui m’a d’abord repoussé, j’ai commencé à suivre le programme régulièrement (établi sur 9 jours/étapes) et à moins de m’être fait laver le cerveau j’ai trouvé les arguments et la façon d’aborder le problème de Nick Williams très pertinente et honnête.
