Know this by heart
Ready to start
Following my recent liberation I confirm that I’m stuffed of drawing digitally and I will now only use paper for this purpose (because paper, I love you). However, I deeply enjoyed killing hours of commuting scratching my little screen and transforming a boring routine into an exciting one.
A selection of my Colors’ sketches are now archived where they belong to and following my first recycling I quickly sketched up a new one based on a challenging daily challenge: keeping things going.
One question: What’s going on above our heads?
One answer: This is why we don’t (need to) know.
Another mash-up of feelings I had while commuting. I can’t explain much but maybe I should try fishing again.
This mouth can’t speak.

Of course this is still a weirdo illustration of nothing in particular but it’s cool to me, I love exprimentation!

En guise de vidange de fin d’année voici un petit pack de cinq illustrations qui trainaient dans ma DS.
Malgré tout le bien que je pense de Colors! et du côté pratique de dessiner sur une console portable je commence à en ressentir les limites et le contact physique avec le vrai papier me manque. 2009 sera l’année du sketchpad sans pixels!

My first thought about the last Illustration Friday topic was that it will be quite inspirational but, finally, I went a bit further in the concept than expected and choose to sketch a guy who, after pretending too much, see his face on a mirror and don’t recognize himself… so he get surprised or even scared.
