Cerise

.
Here is Cerise, tiny drawing done last year.
She’s now living in United Kingdom at Jenny’s place, the “Tilly” :)
Jenny (aka @whonifer) told me her story :
.

“… An odd and magical story. I showed the picture to my sister while we sat on the roof of my houseboat and it blew away. Once I noticed I searched but it was gone…”
.

.
“… Many days later I returned home and noticed something stuck to the side of my hull as I walked aboard. It was the picture ! It lost the envelope & plastic wallet but had some how still returned. The ink had run which I think makes it more beautiful.
Its return was such a surprise I am even more fond of it, the jar is so that in the future it floats.”
.

.Thanks again Jenny !

.
Here is the second part, I played with perforated paper, found at the St-Michel flea market in Montreal ; huge place full of stuff, you can spend a day in there looking at everything. Those will also be available at the Smart Design Mart this week end.
.

16 Beige notebooks, hand sewing.
The cover is a piece of perforated paper “Gypsy Charmer”, fixed with neutral PH adhesive.

Each notebook contains various kinds of papers, from thin to thick, collected here and there, to give them a second life : washi, wrapping paper, color paper, machine paper, vellum, lined paper, and watercolor papers : Arches, Canson, Fabriano… Amongst the blank pages, there is some pieces of silkscreen prints, sketch, watercolor tests, Sharpie drawings…

I was sick for two weeks 2 months ago, so I spent my time recycling all unused papers, prints and drafts of all kinds I’ve found at home… :) These tiny notebooks will be available at the Smart Design Mart this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, in Montreal.

30 tiny notebooks, hand sewing with beads.

Some drawings I’ve done between 1988 & 1994 I guess :)

My favorite subjects were reptiles, birds, fishes -mostly sharks-, felids, dinosaurs, hybrids creatures in various chaotic climates ; I didn’t like the human shapes.

… and a marmot !

Encyclopedias of wild animals and ‘fauna cards’ were my first sources of inspiration, I also remember that I spent hours watching insects in the garden, and analyzing the pictures of the ‘Science & Vie‘ magazines of my father ;)
