I had originally illustrated her when I was living in New York, 2 years ago. I wasn’t blogging very frequently (It was my first time in New York, you see, and there was so much to do!), but I was drawing a lot, all the time and everywhere!

One of my best friends from there loved this illustration and she would always mention it in our emails and chats. I had forgotten about it for a while until this morning. For some reason, I woke up thinking about it! It took me a while to find it among my several back up folders, but here it is! :0) Looking at it makes me happy. It brings back a lot of good memories.

See it in my shop here.

Lots of love,

Sisters

Hi everyone!

Let me introduce you to my Sisters. Say hello to them!

Sisters

These girls were inspired by European winters, in particular by a trip to Moscow that I went on last year. All the women looked so beautiful and elegant in their fur coats, I just had to draw them!

I decided to keep it in black and white and focus on the lines as much as possible. I wanted to recreate the look of the different textures I saw. In the end it worked like therapy for me: drawing line after line, detail after detail, adding in the shading and the volume, slowly building the illustration on paper… It’s my favourite process in the world!

Anyway, I’ve had this illustration for quite a while now and recently decided to put it on Society 6. I like the quality and the variety of products they have on offer and I LOVE to see my drawings applied to real objects! When I’m drawing I don’t really think about how my illustration would look as a wall clock or as a handbag, so it’s always an exciting surprise!

My Sisters are now available for purchase as art prints (framed or not, you choose!), as tote bags in various sizes, as wall clocks, pillows and a bunch of other nice goodies for you and your home!

Lots of love.

New shop and new illustrations

I am utterly obsessed with Society6 right now. A few weeks ago, I decided to open my own Society6 shop and test their services. I guess I wanted to make sure that the quality was as good as they said it was, and that I was entirely satisfied before releasing some of my illustrations for sale (yes, I can be very annoying and suspicious sometimes). To my delight, the quality was in fact, as good as they say on the site! I ordered one of my own prints and the paper, the printing itself and the service were impeccable!

So here are two pieces that I decided to release especially on Society6. They were originally produced for a gallery exhibition that was canceled at the last minute but I had so much fun drawing and coloring them, I couldn’t keep them a secret forever, could I? Paris New York They can be bought as art prints in various sizes, as framed prints in a variety of frames (white, black, pecan, walnut, etc), as stretched canvases, as throw pilows, tote bags and wall clocks! Society6_merchandise I must admit, it is fun and exciting to see my illustrations applied to all these different products. I kind of want one of each! (Which is probably weird and a little narcissistic, but I can’t help it! ;0)

Lots of love.
