Hotel Cap St Jacques


This weekend I have been to the beach and stayed in an hotel called Cap St Jacques supposed to be a 4 stars one, service and everything else was absolutely pathetic, this inspired me to draw this little presentation ads in case anybody would like to have fun in there!

Dancing dog

Hi there!

here is an attempt to "gimpcolor" one of my drawing, I usually use markers (Copics, AD etc...) for my colors but I bought a moleskine sketch book which is great in term of paper quality/hand feel and drawing comfort but literally drinks the inks and therefore inapt to makers, this is why I felt it would be a good occasion for me to work more on some fine black inking and/or digital colored sketches. This is interesting but I think I prefer the analog way even tough I love digital+analog coloring combination as I did in a previous post.

Shoe Making break


I have been busy for a while as I flew to London to attend a traditional shoemaking course in August and spent september at doing shoes in my house as in my free time to practice while all the good processes aught by the friendly shoemakers James and deborah from Carre Ducker were still fresh in my head.

This does not mean I haven't drawn as I did a lot of research sketches before to launch myself in the adventurous 70 hours process which require a pair of hand-sewn shoes.
I realize that is always good to learn something new in life as I am a former leather good and as an absolute shoe lover this quite made sense to me. 1

Here are some preparaiton sketches and the following the shoes I made.
