This mouth can’t speak.
If it does he will crunch the beauty inside.
This ear can’t hear.
If it does he will swallow the beauty outside.
This head can’t think.
And I can’t write.
Well, I fooled myself on this one: it was late and I mix up the french idiomatic expression “faire un paté” (means to vomit) with “faire un flan” which means making a big deal out of something insignificant. So this guy’s been a bit sick and generate a proper “Flamby“… I know, it doesn’t make any sense, but it’s been another reason to draw something and there might be some hidden meaning in there… who knows…
…during my 1h15 daily commute to work was difficult until I realized that as far as I can get a sit on the train I can use this time to… well… sketch. And my little DS with Colors! is actually the best tool for that. So here is a new fully digital sketch done in two commute sessions; I’m about to get addicted to this thing again!
As a start for the most exciting year of all time (until next year) I’ve been walking in Greenwich park and, suddendly, I overheard a mum “optimising” her kids resistance to the artic cold by giving them orders like “put your hood”, “close you coat”, etc… How funny! My mum still tell me the same! But I’m not a kid anymore, except for mum.
So I draw, and here, it is. Happy new year.
Here’s my Illustration Friday submission of the week (I’ve said that before but I’m going to try to submit every week from… now… hopefully) for: Crunchy!
With 2009 nearly done I illustrated what has been the crunchiest topic of the year: the credit (crunch, yes). I initiated a style a bit more realistic this time and not as colourful as usual with, eventually, something a bit more meaningful.
For adding the colours I experimented the use of vectors instead of my standard bitmap approach. I don’t understand why I haven’t done this before as it’s fast, clean, flexible and fun to play with.
Of course this is still a weirdo illustration of nothing in particular but it’s cool to me, I love exprimentation!
Here’s a 1am inspiration triggered by Illustration Friday‘s topic of the week: “Entangled” or the art of making things complicated. Sounds like an universal topic to me.
I always been obsessed by sketching hairs but certainly too lazy to spend much time on it. For once I pushed my boundaries and spend time sharpening what is the weirdest hair-cut I’ve ever draw. I had a good time.
It just raised a question to myself: Is that green to use an hair-dryer? Problably not, use a bonnet.
