View from the working desk

(French below – Français plus bas) So… In the end, I didn’t manage at all the February drawing challenge. I have been very badly sick for about a month, been given bad pills that messed up my whole body and mind and as a result I ended up falling asleep straight after dinner, barely managing…

I forgot myself in November or sometime.

(French below – français plus bas) This is just an update on my current work and projects for 2016. First of all, I am glad that the Pakistani press talks about Maya prior to the film’s screening there, and to see the poster I designed for this movie going this far! I’m so proud of having…

BofA Contemporary Art Festival 2015

(French below – Français plus bas) One year ago, just after I moved to Scotland, I took part in this yearly art fair in Bridge of Allan. I was just starting considering my art “seriously” and was specialised in portraiture. Sometimes, it’s amazing to look back and see all the progress you’ve made from a…

New ‘Peter Pan’ greeting cards series!

(French below – français plus bas) I can’t believe we’re already half way through October – it seems to me that it has been the busiest 15 days of the last three years! First, there’s Inktober going on (I know I need to catch up the last two days, shh.), I’ve got two temporary exhibitions, one in…

Openings and happenings

(French below – Français plus bas) This weekend, two collective exhibitions I take part in were opening. It was also my last days as a retail sales assistant. Both shows were of those that I call “short notice” ones: you don’t get more than two weeks to get organised. It was a bit difficult for…

Artward 2015

(French below – français plus bas) Sometimes I wonder what goes through my head. But I applied and here I am, in a public internet competition against very talentful tens of artists. The grant at the end of it would cover an evening course at the school of art that I feel I really need…

Curiosities and other odd things.

(French below – Français plus bas) As I already said, I am a former art historian. I specialised in the history of collecting, which includes the collection of oddities and more particularly these cabinets of curiosities, most of them showing a bric a brac of exotic animals taxidermy, fossils, pictures and engravings, and in more…

Alice in Wonderland original greeting cards ready to go!

(French below – français plus bas) I’m finally finished with my five “Alice’s Dream” designs! – I had to find a sixth little Alice to draw though, as I’ve got yet another idea… Anyway, I placed the order for these five first ones and the cards should arrive within two weeks, hopefully before the start of…
