Eye candy

I had a crush this morning when I discover Fukuda Kan‘s paintings, light and refreshing as a spring breeze. A real “Eye Candy” !
I know I will never be able to do as beautiful as her, and that I’ll never find the time either anyway, but they arouse my desire to paint. Perhaps, one day, I will take out my paint and brushes …

April fool’s day

1er-avril-2010

The tradition got lost in favor of the practical jokes, but a century ago, the 1st of April was an opportunity to wish many good things, as you may do for new year… So best wishes !!!

Postcard from this album.

These new buttons, as colorful as candies, inspired me for a “lollipop like” packaging!
And just like candies, it’s better when you get too…

I cannot believe how long this winter was!
I have never been so eager to see the first sunny days of spring arrive…
Still, now it’s the end of the spring that I’m waiting for, because if everything is going well, along with the first summer days … a baby will should arrive !

So, to celebrate both good news, here is a new desktop wallpaper!

Proud!

If you’re a graphic designer, if you like patterns or if once in a while you visit the “Les blogs que je lis” section, you certainly know Print & Pattern, Bowie Style’s famous blog. As you may guess from its name, it’s all about prints… and… patterns, my favorites!!!

I am very proud to have been already mentioned several times. And even more proud when she asked me if I would accept to be presented with other designers in her coming book.

It was almost 2 years ago (such a project takes time!) and this morning I had the good surprise to see that the book had become real. With 2 double pages dedicated to my work ! Proud as a peacock, I’m telling you!

If this drawing reminds you of my studio, it’s just normal. It was made by someone who knows it pretty well because she’s been working there for more than a year and a half. We call her “The butterfly”.

The butterfly is a little bit shy, a little bit unsecure though she has a very accurate eye, a nice naive stroke  and she writes very poetic words.
I must confess that it took me a little bit of persuasion to make the butterfly revealing herself…
Go and flip trhough her notebook, it’s just a couple of flutters away…

Dreams come true

Not so long ago I was writing about my wish to make fabrics, do you remember ? Well a short time after this post, I’ve had a very nice proposition from “C’est dimanche” which I couldn’t decline. It was about a four-hand work : to create an exclusive set, with both her sewing pattern and my fabric design.

We’ve agreed on a summer dress pattern for girls from 1 to 4 years old.

Many drawings were made but we ended up with just 4. With a lot of pink of course, because I asked Susie what she would wear.
But you… what do you think about it ? Which one would you pick?
