Portfolio making class #5

(French below – Français plus bas) I hope your year starts well and that you’re ready to pursue a few dreams in the next twelve months! Making this year better than the last one is up to you – and I know it’s gonna be difficult for me: although 2015 was pretty crap for humankind,…

Portfolio making class #4

(French below – français plus bas) What a week-end… I’m exhausted. I planned to do so much stuff and ended up apathetic, still under the chock of the terrorist attacks in Paris. Luckily enough, nobody I know have been hurt… But I still feel for all these others. I tried for two days to escape…

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.

About meeting people and getting started

(French below – Français plus bas) Yesterday, I finally went to one of these weekly meetings of artist and arty people in central Glasgow. As always, when I am supposed to meet people I am terrified. I was lucky to find a very small group though and was able to deal with my terrible social anxiety.…

The 40 minutes observation exercise

(French below – français en dessous) As I intend to apply to the Glasgow School of Art and missed all inscriptions for evening courses (especially the portfolio preparation ones…) I collected tips on their website to work by myself. I’m sometimes a bit lazy about drawings and sketchbook filling. Thing is, it’s not only laziness,…
