Keep Dreaming...

Two pages for a collective album tackling great achievements done under 8 years of Bush administration...
In this sarcastic story, the Republican candidate wins the election, we'll see the result in three weeks, but who knows, american people are capable of doing incredible things!!!
No offense for U.S. citizens there, but, as far as i remember, the slandering campaign against France led by some U.S. and British media back in 2002/2003 was really funny too...

Vectores de la Muerte

Cover Illustration 01

Cover illustration 02

Inner Sleeve.

Illustrations for the next Coche Bomba lp called "Vectores de la Muerte" ( does it really means something? ) which
had been recorded back in 2002 before being released this year.
It should take the form of a double folded cover, quite unusual way for a record packaging. The thing will be printed and pressed for November.
Here's a short promotional text:

"Six years after the last studio session from Coche Bomba, the two fellas from Etoile Renoi & Raoul Prod. decided to unearth, remix and remaster the recording,
to press it on vinyl and wrap it up in a beautiful double folded sleeve. A different way to say punk is not completely dead... At last its corpse's still moving...

Coche Bomba were five jerks from Lyon starting playing fast, violent and distorted Hardcore Punk at the beginning of the Nineties.
Not that they were ahead of their time, but their quirky sound, machine-gun drumming, odd tempo changes, were not that common by French standards back then...
Instead of following trends or imitating bands, Coche Bomba rather developped its personal musical approach.
Lyrics, alternatively sung in French, English and Spanish dealt mostly with socio-political issues...
Despite being unappreciated and misunderstood in their early years, the band managed to gain recognition in the European H/C scene from the 90s.

After spewing out many different records gathered on the discography CD "5 years of trash guerilla", after a two-month tour in South America, and a farewell gig
in October 2003 opening for Dropdead in Paris, here's finally their last, unreleased full-lenght album.
Recorded in 2002, "Vectores de la Muerte" has 26 furious and relentless songs delivered in less than 27 minutes...

While the world dies, here are its last cries of despair."

Brave New World

Manually Separated Color, pencil on left and ballpen on right.

Poster for my next painting exhibition.
The thing will be held in Poitiers, hometown of the Fanzinothèque, a place which collects and files fanzines from all over the world since 1990.

The exhibit will be focused on an adaptation of Aldous Huxley s "Brave New World" updated by the Terrenoire collective.

The opening is planned for October 25th, and that will be a good opportunity for me to lay some noise in public.

Richard Durn


Front cover

Back Cover

Cover art for an upcoming Lp from the french punk band Richard Durn,
R. Durn is the name of a mass murderer who killed 8 people and wounded 17 people in the Nanterre's town council back in March 2002, mainly as a result of a terrible life of frustration... To avoid any connotation to violent imagery, i decided to opt for a more allusive and enigmatic subject matter...
Ooops, somebody's ringing at the door...
