    The story of a vampire trying to get close to solar beauty, to touch beach flowers with his cold cold hands.

  5. Hello! Here is my third year film for CalArts Seasonal Affective Disorder made mostly at Gobelins, l’Ecole de l’Image!

    Thank you so much to everybody that helped me along the way. The music is by the great Mathieu Alvado, a French composer that has scored a lot of the films at Gobelins!

     
  6. I realized that school is closed for *pont de May* so I’ll share my film with you on Monday! Here are some stills from my film Seasonal Affective Disorder! :)

     
  7. Here is a concept sketch for my new film Seasonal Affective Disorder! It’s almost ready, tomorrow I’ll be sharing it in vimeo. It’s about girls and flowers at the beach. It’s an exaggeration of human desire portrayed by a character that is immortal, has been around for a long time, and still hasn’t had enough of what he finds most beautiful - - girls that are alive and under the sun.

    I can’t wait to share it tomorrow!!

     
  8. I´ve been carrying post its on my coat pocket lately - I love doing quick sketches there! It’s fun and no fuzz. I´ve been drawing at the metro and it really breaks the routine and helps me appreciate how unique every person and situation is. Although one person did get mad at me for drawing him :( it had never happened to me before! I´ll learn to be more discrete now…

     
  9. Here is a page of drawings I made at the Vallotton exhibition at the Grand Palais back in January! It was a lovely exhibition, I especially liked his intimités woodcuts. 

    But I also love his color work, I keep a postcard of Misia à sa coiffure next to my mirror :)

     
  10. These are some sketches I did at the Orsay Museum when I went to see the the Masculin Masculin exhibition of nude male art from 1800 to now. It was really wonderful, I went twice! The first time I just took my time and the second time I did some little drawings on my notebook. I love drawing at museums, sometimes this kind of exhibitions become too overwhelming and it’s hard to process so much greatness. I notice that when I draw I start paying attention to things I didn’t see when I was passively observing, and it makes me connect to the design decisions of the artists.

    Anyway, here are some dumb little drawings!

     
  11. I spent all morning looking at my friend’s work for Portfolio Day!! I’m so proud :)

  12. I’m uploading my portfolio! Having some color management problems, but I’ll post the link asap! It has some film updates :)

    I kind of liked being away from CalArts on Portfolio Day. Saved me much of the stress of being there. But sent much love to my friends who were going through that very intense day! 

    Big thanks to Nak, Seth and Yon for helping me print out my portfolio and set it up!
