Street=Art : Lille

Observational drawing by That Restless Platypus

This is one of the most characteristic building in Lille : The chamber of commerce and industry’s belfry. It’s next to the beautiful grand place.

Lille is one of my favorite cities in France.

Vienna – an experimentation with watercolors

So, my last travel was to Vienna and it was absolutely amazing! This city is incredibly beautiful, I had the chance to meet an old friend I hadn’t seen in a very long time and I saw the sunset over Sissi’s castle while listening to an opera.

Definitely a good memory and one of my best travels.

A reminder from Paris

Here is a little reminder from a recent weekend I’ve spent in Paris with one of my best and oldest friends.

I found this view of the eiffel tower vey fitting since it’s taken from the Palais de Tokyo where we were the night before for a DJ set.

But mostly, to me, it would represent how influential he was, and still is. Being one of the triggers for my newly found outgoing personnality.  Making me face and confront at least some aspects of reality, and generally helping me better myself while I’m still as annoying as ever 😀

Obviously, I was just trying to illustrate a good moment and a nice view when I started it but we can always find new meanings to our creations right ?

Drawing challenges by Tangomiva #22 : Attachment

Every time, 1 new compulsory theme, 3 mindsets, 3 ways to show it.

Drawings done by Eva, Naomi and ThatRestlessPlatypus.

That Restless Platypus : My drawing represents how, to me, attachment and affection can keep me grounded in reality (which can be hard for me sometimes) and how they help me try to express emotions and exchange thoughts. This is actually an happy drawing even though it doesn’t fells like it.

Eva : Attachment between two people. Are the hands moving closer or further away from each other ? The vulture looks like a bad omen but it is in fact an animal that lives with his wate all his life. It is a game about the ambiguity of attachment : both good and bad emotion.

Isn’t it funny how Naomi’s drawing has parts of both our drawings in hers ?

Naomi : My drawing represents the scary aspect of offering ones heart without knowing what we’ll get back : Suffering or Happiness.

How do you see the concept of attachment ? Is it a good or a bad feeling ?

Portraits : Random reflections

While trying to draw faces, I often find myself in need of a model. Now my sketchbooks are filled with unknown persons who had expressions which attracted my sight. It’s amusing to think that I don’t know anything about them but I might be the only person in the world to notice that moment when this girl seemed lost in her mind looking at the horizon scrolling on the other side of the windows.

Portraits : Friendly faces

While trying my best to draw portraits I sometimes use familiar faces as models…
Sorry for them

Portraits : Let’s start from the beginning

Still trying to get better at faces (spoiler alert : it’s not really working).
since I have some troubles with the position of the different parts of the face I tried to think about what they are on.

Portraits : Perceptions…

Experimenting on auto-portraits, I can clearly see how the fabric of reality distorts around our egos.

When drawing ,it’s even harder to be fair with ourselves than with others since it’s so easy to be obsessed by every imperfection. So when you have serious hang-ups your all perception of yourself can start turning around those specific points…

…And then you don’t even remember how real or unreal is the way you see yourself.

Portraits : Work in progress

Drawing a face is actually quite hard…

I’ve decided to train myself and I won’t stop until I do something satisfying!
