No more rain! Sunshine!!! Summer!?
I’m sure I’m not the only person who noticed that those sticky clouds finally gave up, but it gives me a good excuse to exhibit in the sun my sexy Oyster Cart & The Blackheath Cavern Club prints, brilliantly executed by The Print Space in East London.

I’m pretty sure this is a ridiculously bold statement but, – really -, time is flying like ducks are swimming and those three little guys I met the other day are certainly right. Wait or you’ll get wet. Do you see what I mean? Never mind, they do.
My dear blog hasn’t been fed for over a month, shame on me, so I had to find a quick way to fix this before I disconnect from the little world I know (=holidays!).
This is it for now and as a famous duck said, “better to wait, than being wet”. Sorry, I can’t remember his name (it’s in duck anyway).
She likes hats, she doesn’t have any but she’s got a cat.
I could eventually turn this into a “song” but I’m playing safe with a little sketch for now.

At least! I thought this one will never end but it finally did tonight after a good couple of months of thinking, thinking, drawing, drawing again, then drawing something else, then refining, refining more, and colouring, and again, ….

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.

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.
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.
The last few weeks have been very exciting for my little illustration world. I pushed myself a bit more than usual in order to trigger my main 2010’s resolution: showing off my work further than my bedroom, family & friends.

C’est incroyable un blog: pas de nouveau post depuis 3 semaines et chaque jour j’entend une voix (la mienne surement) qui me rappelle qu’un blog c’est comme une plante, si on l’arrose pas ça sèche et puis sa meurt. J’ai jamais su maintenir une plante. Allez hop, un petit bilan s’impose!

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.
