The picture is all blurry because it's dark outside, but I couldn't wait to show it. The wedding card of two persons very dear to my heart, who did me the honour of asking me to draw it...

I'd like to thank them again for the trust they showed me.

I'll post a better picture of it soon!

Reflexions on the whole Benetton/Vatican story.

Since it's been pointed out to me, I would like to precise that I /do/ believe that Benetton was expecting precisely this reaction from the Vatican, and of course all they want is to make a buzz and sell stuff. All the more reason to roll my eyes at the fact that it worked so well.

Despite looking around in the European/American media, I couldn't find any reaction from any other party. So what do you think? Was anyone here shocked by this?

La suite...

As requested, the next bit of the story. Didn't have the time to colour it yet; maybe later!

Baby Cthulu Wants To Play.

Edit: My brother pointed this out from the great Boulet. I'd forgotten but I'd seen it a few days before this drawing, so it's fair to quote it as source of inspiration! If you don't know that blog (which probably means you aren't a french speaker) , don't hesitate to have a look - it's awesome.

Ablasserdam quickie

 After Den Haag, Alblasserdam, home of the Kinderdijk, lots of horses, and lots of swans. I'll make a better drawing of it someday.

... And in Alblasserdam, it is well known that the swans are particularly difficult to ride, as demonstrated by the little wood imp below.

Den Haag

While, if given any choice, I'd leave the city in a second to live in the countryside, I do love The Hague, with its mix of liveliness, modernity and history.

I love the fact that here, you can walk around the government buildings simply to admire them. I love the coloured lights on the lake outside the Binnenhof at night. I challenge myself every time to buy a fresh herring (and never dare it.)

I  enjoyed sitting there, drawing and being left alone except for the occasional bypasser sharing a smile...

.... Or the crazy seagul paparazzi.
This one is two -in- one: included, a "spot the errors" game. The CC guy was able to find the biggest one- will /you/ see it?

From what I could read on their flags, these guys didn't seem to know precisely what they were protesting against. They reminded me of the "Asterix and Cleopatra" movie, where the pyramid workers go on strike shouting: "PAS CONTENTS, PAS CONTENTS!".

I hope you didn't hurt your eyes too much on the tiny sepia scribbling.
