"I live in Angoulême, France, and create comics. I also teach design to art students. My love for drawing is an old passion for seeing and understanding eveything around me by the way of line. But drawing on sketchbooks is a new thing for me. I began to fill notebooks in my city with a friend —a very good watercolour artist— four or five years ago.
It's a good thing to improve my drawings by observing the landscapes, architecture, human posture, faces and so on. My notebook follows me and I put in my impressions. I can draw in different places: rock festivals, cultural events, or in ordinary places: at home, in a café, on the beach. For me it's a time to take a breath and concentrate, like a little meditation. It's my contemplative side. I'm looking for a kind of spontaneity, trying to capture things quickly. I'm looking for a "live" drawing, and a drawing of life.
I also like the communication and reaction that I get from other people's sensitivity, whether they tell me in person or on the blog."
