Meet the correspondents: PARIS > Martin Etienne
"My name is Martin, I was born in the Normandy region of France and I currently live in Paris.
I have been an architect for ten years, but I prefer drawing rather than working. Perhaps that’s why I’m currently unemployed (my favourite job).
I’m neither an explorer nor a traveller who’s searching for something new all the time. I’m just a guy who loves to take advantage of his free-time to draw, most of the time at home, in bars, in the street or on trains… I sketch as I stroll.
I like to draw everyday things because I think if you look hard enough you can find a source of daydreaming in very simple things which are right in front of your eyes."
