Again, I’d like to feature my friend Nathalee‘s recent art work here. I’ve been following her art work and I really enjoy documenting the process because her design is always so delightful and beautiful. I like all the colours that she gathers together, and especially this white theme is my favourite.
It was for an art gallery in Vancouver BC; Access Gallery, when they had an art auction event a few feeks ago. Here are some of the behind-the-scene shots before the show started.
It was the Sempé‘s illustration on a big poster that stopped me one day in Paris. Jean-Jacques Sempé is one of France’s most adored cartoonists, (and the author of the legendary Le Petit Nicolas), and I’ve always loved his wonderful art work. Entitled “Sempé, un peu de Paris et d’ailleurs (“Sempé: a Bit of Paris and Beyond”), Sempé‘s work was being celebrated at Hôtel de Ville, with a retrospective of more than 300 original drawings and poetic texts that span over 50 years. Many of which focus on Paris – reunited in the outstanding collection of the covers of The New Yorker as well as his original and rare sketchbooks. His talent is characterized by simplicity mixed with discrete humour and a delicate poetic atmosphere. Always funny and heartwarming. It was a terrific exhibit and a beautiful tribute to his amazing work of his life.
