The owls are not what they seem...

Last year I decided to decorate my christmas tree with handmade owls, so I gathered a creative team together and we brought to life a lot of cute creatures! The result was a lot of different personalities... smarter or sillier, handsome or short, geeky or fashionable. The owls have been watching us for a short time from the christmas tree, until the day I decided to let them out into the real world!

Inspiration and creativity is like a virus and spreads quickly... I was siting with my friend and she said to me about an article from "Wired" magazine that talked about stories that were only six words long, from sci-fi to fantasy, horror to romance.

Only the six words were enough to create an explosion in the imagination.

We decided to take a picture so that she could illustrate one of the stories... the pictures became 100 and in the end I found my self somewhere between illustrating some of the stories too and making a self portrait.

Thanks to Druantia for her beautiful photography and don't forget to have a read through her article!

The colourful world of Betsy Walton!

First post of 2010... So Happy New Year!

I know It's been a little while since I've written, but you have to forgive me! It took me a long time to adjust after Christmas break, and I always enjoy keeping a distance to technology for a while.

Today I'm writing about Betsy Walton! A native Kansan who now lives in Portland. She decided to leave her full time job back in 2006 and dedicate her soul to her paintings. Her world has pulled me in there and I can't stop looking at her paintings and flying in those worlds. I'm fascinated by the way she is using the colour, the colour schemes and of course the dreamy drawings.

Have a look at her website and her blog which is very insightful as she talks in depth about her sources of inspiration such as novels and breath meditation.
