The Princess and The Broccoli

I’m enrolled in “Year of the Fairy Tale”, a year-long online drawing class taught by Carla Sonheim. The third fairy tale we worked on was The Princess and the Pea, and one of the optional assignments was to illustrate an alternative version of the story….

Meanwhile, on my other blog where I post every day…

So, there’s this teeny tiny little thing I’ve casually mentioned many times on Twitter, lately, but still haven’t mentioned here: technically, I’ve been blogging a lot since the beginning of 2014. And when I say a lot, I mean every single day since January 1st, which…

An underwater wallpaper inspired by Jiro Dreams of Sushi

An underwater image, a school of tuna, filmed from underneath: this is one of the images that struck me the most when I finally saw the documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Two weeks later, here’s the illustrated wallpaper those tuna inspired me. I hope you’ll enjoy it!…

Montreal, with flying colors

Montreal, with flying colors

Last month, I went to Canada for the first time, for a few days in Montreal. So many things to love, over there!

The friendly people, who often greet you with a neutral “allo” to see if you’ll answer in french or in english. Who speak french with a delightful accent. And who use the metric system, in all its simple and logical glory. Oh, and make good bread, too (how is that possible? I thought the American Bread Problem had something to do with wheat varieties in North America?).

Le mois dernier, je suis allée au Canada pour la première fois, à Montréal, et je n’ai pas été déçue. J’ai aimé les gens, et leur façon de dire “allo” en guise de bonjour neutre, histoire de voir si la conversation va continuer en français ou en anglais selon votre réponse. Leur accent si délicieux lorsqu’ils parlent français. J’ai aussi aimé retrouver le système métrique, pour quelques jours. Et manger du bon pain, même (le mystère s’épaissit… je pensais que le problème du pain américain venait des variétés de blés différentes en Amérique du Nord ?). Tant d’autres choses à aimer…

Illustration: a hidden cat, and the process from simple to complicated, and to simple again

Illustration: a hidden cat, and the process from simple to complicated, and to simple again

About a not so well hidden cat, and an illustration I wanted simple, made complicated, and then simple again.

À propos d’un chat bien caché (?), et d’une illustration simple devenue compliquée, avant de redevenir simple.
