Don't Mess...

I had often been told that messing art with politics is a very bad thing.
The magazine where i published my recent works had been closed by the media giant Lagardère Active Media last December. Seems now there's little or almost no room to express different opinions within the mainstream media.

More info about the magazine demise here
Transnationale.org has some detailed info about the Lagardere Group as well as for other multinational corporations.

Rock in Squatt

Here are some vids i took to document the musical activity of a squatted venue that had opened recently in Lyon. Those kind of places are unfortunately kind of short-lived in France and chances are the squatt will be closed in the next months...
Shooting those cheap videos are also a fun way to experiment sequential art and narration in a different field than what i'm doing with comics.
you can check my Youtube channel there: (^_^)

Doodle Doodle

did this while answering to phone calls...

Senseless Asbtract Crap

Found this rummaging into my things, seems naming this blog Dump Site is quite appropriate.
the sketch is like one of those doodles made while talking on the phone, tried to make a painting out of it, attempting to make more neutral, consensual and "sellable" paintings. These last from 1999, rather post it there before it returns to the dump and therefore fall into oblivion...

Home Sweet Home

Both were made mid-August at an open-air rock festival along with the painters from the Organic Comix collective, it's been raining all the week-end and as a result the panels were soiled with grass and mud.

Here's a lil' video about a little painting intervention of 20 minutes we did later in the night...

Erotica..... " SKIN JOB "

Finally, it's summer time, as there's more skin exposed on the streets, thought it was time to display some erotic orientated work. SKIN JOB is a strange graphic novel which tells the story of a Colombian girl emigrating in a bit "surreal" California. She ends up being involved in the online porn business by her lover/boyfriend.

That 110 pages story got published between 2002 and 2004 in the french magazine "Geisha", ( http://www.geishavpc.com/boutique/liste_rayons.cfm?code_lg=lg_fr) which includes mostly translated japanese material, The story is actually published in the pages of the italian "Blue Magazine". ( http://www.coniglioeditore.it/riviste.php )
