I received David's Moleskine from Kersten yesterday, no two days ago. I sketched the idea generally at about 11pm, then... I have no idea what was going on yesterday, but I had this extra charged battery and I created all day. Maybe it was my new desk configuration. Maybe it makes it more comfortable to work? Anyway, check out the other photos on Flickr : Moly-X.
illustration friday: worry

A self portrait of sorts, me worrying about work, normal for me. Where will my next idea come from... there is that cheeky monkey to keep me on my toes.
Photo Friday: Difficult Shot

I took this photo while in the Métro in Paris, trying not to make myself obvious to the women / girls I was taking the photo of. I wasn't pointing it at their faces, so I guess it made it easier.

I know tomorrow is Friday and there will be a new topic tomorrow, but I have finally done my Illustration Friday after a few weeks of being a non-player. I love Moleskine paper!
the weekend away

I spent a long weekend in Paris while the man was at a Geek conference. Saturday was a bit slow. The temperature dropped, it was storming, hail... lovely. I dropped into the Lomostore in the 9eme to buy a black and white film, and was on my way.
I stopped in at the Centre Georges Pompidou, wasn't really taken with anything that was on, but made the mistake of going into the bookshop. Never a good idea if you don't want to spend too much money. All said, I was reasonable. By this time I also had a Pariscope, which is a guide for what is on in Paris. I found out there was a Patti Smith exhibition at Foundation Cartier, so I went to see it. It was a beautiful exhibition, but I was a little disappointed, unless she specified this, that for the films, there were no subtitles for the poor Frogs. Ok for me, I understand. Other than that, I enjoyed it. I was a wanderer on Saturday, I took photos and looked in odd shops. Avoided the rain.
Sunday I was more motivated. I first went to see an exhibition of "British Outsider Art" at Le Halles St Pierre, closed, despite what it said in the guide. Bastards. So I headed to the 4eme to see an exhibition called "La Photographie Timbrée" (Stamped Photographs) about artists who have used post cards as pieces of art. Not bad. Then I went to the "Maison Europeenne de La Photographie" to see an expo of Georges Rousse. That was beautiful, they had a film of all, or most, of the places he had painted and photographed, I was impressed.
THEN, I went to the Grand Palais to see Figuration Narrative (not the official site, but better), it was interesting, but not sure it merited the 10 euro I paid to get in. Then I met up with some friends and saw (above) Richard Serra, also at the Grand Palais. Amazing. Offf, so now I am home, with very sore legs and feel like my eyes are falling out of my head, but all in all, I had a good time.
