These are some ink drawings that I posted on my Tumblr last October.

This is my participation to James Gurney's contest.
This hyperactive genius noticed a "troll caught" label on a tuna can, and here we are, after a month of boat-troll-fishing brainstorming. I learned a lot during that month.
All the entries can be visible here, along with the beautiful winning illustrations.
Here are some preliminary sketches and process shots.

Here are three drawings I did earlier this week. They began as doodles and evolved into something else. I'm not sure how to go on with the color, because I don't think that the paper I used will appreciate watercolor. And I'm not extremely fond of tracing paper either.
I know you can't stand this suspense, but be strong.
I'll be back with some solutions (hopefully) to this conundrum.
Have a great Thursday !

Another trip to the non-existant lands today !
For this journey, I thought about all the facades that we wear everyday, one for each social occasion, and the ones that we use to lie to ourselves.
Do not hesitate to share your own reactions in the comment,
I'd be curious to know what the image might evoke to you.
The first journey and accompanying statement are here.
Some details :
And the initial sketch and study :

I'm trying to keep an active sketchbook since the end of June. Early July was very successful, I managed to draw every day for almost two weeks. It's not always easy to find the time if you have a day job like I do. What I think is the best strategy is to have a scheduled drawing time. For instance, I went to a garden most evenings after work to draw.
The hardest is always to start. Once the pencil is on the paper, you're gone ...

This fourth page is maybe the one I like best yet.
That might be related to the fact that I had a model to start with, but I think i'ts more about the comforting message I am trying to send to myself. Something like it's ok to grow old, it's also ok to fear death, your own or the death of others, as long at it pushes you to live a better life. It's also about empathy, obviously.
You might notice that the shortcut is leading nowhere at the moment. The next journey is still under construction...
For the first journey and statement, go here.

This is what you find behind the third door.

Second page of the journey. First page and statement are here.
Can you guess where the next door will take us ?
(there is a clue, remember ?)
It would be awesome to have a wall covered with my favorite paintings
and illustrations (the originals, of course... ).
I would stay there for hours until my eyes pop out.
