I made this drawing as a commissioned work for someone I used to co-work with.
I really like this kind of drawings with dots. The symbolism of a multitude of insignificant, rough, most basic and imperfect little things, ; created by the contacts of two opposites : the dark ink of a pointy pen and the white, immaculate and smooth piece of paper. All this absurdity, put in a larger perspective to create meaning.
The line has meaning, the letter does to. They have shape and intention. But the dot isn’t even placed with premeditation. It is only the momentum that made it exist, and it is the same momentum that will make it bland and invisible in the mass. But despite all of it, it gives texture, meaning and a certain “beauty” to the ensemble.
Eva : I like to play on different things. That’s why I started by drawing a constellation’s map. I like their personification. Only that fulfill the requirement for the theme but to re contextualize this map which is basically just the sky I placed a astronaut on a different plan and with a different technique.
That Restless Platypus : I basically have a metaphorical love affair with Selene. Well, on my side anyway.
Thank you for watching this.

That Restless Platypus : This one is easy, it is where I was during the Perseids meteor shower. My exact position was at the top of the tower in the foreground. I spend a part of the night watching the night sky in this castle (Queribus) in south of France and it was amazing!
Do you look at the stars sometimes ? Where were you during the Perseids meteor shower in the first half of august ? Did you see a shooting star ?
Thanks for reading this!
