sketchbook lately plus a little interview



have been quite busy lately, and happily so. i recently started two new picturebooks, and have been quite swamped with editorial work. sometimes i feel like my body is taking the shape of the chair, if it weren't for the little monkey's regular and pleasant interruptions.

on a personal note, i was recently interviewed by the lovely ladies over at museradio (an online podcast series about creatives and their work). here is the interview (hoping i won't bore the heck out of you with my life story)! photo below by Kat Tan.

coming home

here is a big tree illustration i made for my sister when she got married a couple of years ago, which i never photographed.

just got back from two months in australia. we went to melbourne to do a stop motion animation workshop for the state library of victoria (the kids were amazing!)

actually, australia is amazing, and i often wonder why i ever left.
among the general merryment and gallavanting around perth beaches parks and rivers, i also managed to finish a book project and start another, while nina turned one and started walking. great achievements all round.

dans le bois


an illustration i made ages ago for a little girl called Nina, way before my little one was born. But I suppose she was already in my mind. I had forgotten about this til I found it again while sorting some images. it is available in the print shop.

above, for parent and child magazine, below, waitrose weekend magazine, mit liebe magazine.



in other news, today i got a preview of a documentary for which gianluca and i and a team of brilliant french animators did some animated sequences earlier this year. it will come out soon in italy and i just cannot wait to share it here!

crayons and pencils




finally had a little spare time to sketch in between projects. it's so important and i wish i could be one of those incredibly prolific people who fill in numerous sketchbooks every year. I have one sketchbook that lasts forever, and rarely gets finished. i like to think the experimenting happens on the job. but this is so much better, and so liberating.
