This is a sketch I did for a wall design project. It's for a bar. They used to have paintings of naked women on the wall and they wanted something more "now" but not too masculine and cold. So I want to make futuristic collages using old black and white pictures, to link the old look with the new one. Geometry, lighting effects and space with a feminine touch! But I think they want me to remove the ladies...

I painted russian dolls with gouache. It's a xmas gift for my mom, she collects them. I call them russian dolls wearing Mauve Naif hoodies!

If You Could 2008

I participates in the If you Could Diary 2009 contest. Unfortunately my design was not selected. But with all the big names and incredibly talented people participating, it's not a big surprise. The theme this year was "If you could do anything tomorrow, what would it be?" And for me the answer was that I would work in Spain. I went there this summer and I really loved it and I speak some Spanish.

I was asked to make a t-shirt for the employees of Cafeo Café on St-Denis.

Love of letters

In 2007, we did a letterpress workshop with Glenn Goluska. It was part of the Design International Classes and our teacher was Judith Poirier. We had to design a 13x19 inches poster with a typography quote. This is what Catherine Lebrun and I did.

"A love of letters is the beginning
of typographical wisdom. That is, the love of letters as literature and the love of letters as physical entities, having abstract beauty on their own, apart from the ideas they may express or evoke. -John R. Biggs"

Of course we could not resist using the giant wooden letters!
