Early moon

Early moon.
When I was younger, I always loved seeing the moon up in the sky before it was dark. It was like the moon was trying to say HI to the sun.
I still love seeing that.

Stranger in a strange land.

Stranger in a strange land.
Or how to deal with THOSE days at the office.

Ps.. I know it has a strong Moebius flavor to it.. definitely wasn’t going for that at first but it started happening, I just let it! I’m aware of it though.

Sonder

Sonder
 It’s not just  that every one of these lights has a personal story, it’s also that, at some points, some of these stories will cross paths and make new stories.
RIGHT NOW one of those lights might be a major change on your life . It could be tomorrow or in ten years you have no idea. I’m always amazed by that feeling.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman Kicking butts and (not) taking names.
I’m just excited for the movie which I haven’t seen yet.
Also...I’m having fun with the sketchy stuff for now . At some point I’ll probably get back to regular sketches but for now because of time and because It’s fun I’m keeping them loose and fast,..just an FYI.

Street dwellers

Street dwellers 


Growing up in France we had a lot of those little cobble stone streets. They were nice but at 2 or 3 Am after a fun night out they were magical! With the little bistro lights hanging out and no one in site and the big shadows..

I know it’s just a sketch but sometimes, sketches like this make me happier than full blown illustrations.
It’s funny what motivates us as  artists in general. It’s usually not money although being paid a lot of money is nice and most of us dream about making a lot of it with our art.... when we think about it.. but mostly, motivation comes by doing a GREAT piece of art. Further more.. the piece of art has to be great in OUR eyes. We love being able to deal with a difficult problem and find a solution we had not yet thought of, or doing happy accidents and getting a  fantastic balance between the technical and the intuitive aspect of our work.. When we feel we've done something better than what we've ever done before.. we feel good.It breaks our heart when other people don't see that and we tend to seek other people's approval of our art because it's a way for us to know that the intense stories that we live in our head actually have a connection and make an impact on the outside world.BT.. public approbation does NOT make an artist happy.. IF this artist doesn't think his work is worth it. That's a funny thing.... you can praise heaps and heaps of compliments on someone's work and it will feel....nice... most of the time, but it will definitely not take precedence over the feeling the artist has of his /her own work. This is where the feeling of being a hack comes from. 
We always hear "no pain no gain".. we tend to think that you have to work hard at something if you want to get  better... and when we do a piece that takes us NO effort and people LOVE it, we feel like we've cheated. This feeling is reinforced when we actually work HARD at a piece and people barely take notice at all.
The best though... is when as an artist you feel like you've worked hard, HAVE learned something AND the public recognizes your work AND you make a million bucksThen... yeah.... that's awesome.But money alone is not a great motivator for artists.

As usual..this is just my opinion and you are free to disagree!

No matter how old I am, each time I see fireflies it makes my heart beat faster, just like when I was a kid . I always think that feeling is gone forever and boom, it comes out of nowhere again and again.  Kind of cool.

Close friends.

Close friends.
My images tend to be fairly straightforward, but sometimes I think they turn out to be metaphors. like this one... Very often I feel like I’ve run out of ideas, that I have nothing left to draw, that I’ve simply lost it( or worse.. I never really “had it”) and I feel down and just.. kind of let go. And when I do, I relax, and open myself to totally different experiences ( in this case feeding the birds) and all of sudden.. ideas come back. But if I try to hard to catch on, they’ll fly away, like the birds. It’s probably better to just let the idea come to you and work with it and respect it. Feels like you never OWN an idea, they just go from window to window, from season to season and all you can do is hang out with them for a bit, enjoy the experience and do the best with the time you have with it. If you hang on too hard to it , you might be stopping other ideas from coming and you might crush the one you already have.
Again.. this is just Monday morning thinking.
