Pierre Lapointe

It's been a while since I last made a more finished, polished drawing, it feels good! I heard some new music upon coming back to Montreal, some of which was terrific! There's this young signer-song writer-composer over here who's pretty popular these days called Pierre Lapointe, he's great! One of his newer songs, called "Deux par deux rassemblés" (Two by Two Brought Together) really gave me a kick, I loved it the first time I heard it. And then I saw the music video, it was INSANE. So crazy and fun and unexpected, and the style of it really resonated with me.

Anyway, this really inspired me, so here's the result!

If you wanna see the video it's at . Enjoy!

Various stuff

Hello hello! I'm back home safe in Montreal, now there are only 3 weeks left 'till the beginning of school. What a summer! I had a blast in San Jose at Gaia, the San Fransisco Bay area is definately a cool place to live in... at least judging from the 2 months I spent there. Anyway, here are some sketches!

Some portrait of a made up 80's rocker type chick. I was kinda thinking about Chrissie Hynde and Joan Jet there, although what I came up with kinda lacks the attitude. I still like it alright.

Some sketches for a short scenario I'm developping, it's nothing epic but I'm having fun with it.

Drawing people at the San Fransisco Airport.

And finally a fashionable chick taking a stroll. Listening to KT Tunstall's "Suddenly I See" song makes me think of pretty girls happily strutting down the city streets, it's a good song!

Little Miss Sunshine

Woah, I don't usually advertise stuff on this blog, but here's something worth mentionning: Little Miss Sunshine. I went to see it with some friends yesterday in Emeryville, and I gotta say I haven't enjoyed a movie that much in a long time. The story and characters are just so amazingly well written and developped, the cast is amazing, the movie just sucks you in from the very first minute. The whole thing is so well paced with a good balance of comedy and drama, every main character (or almost) have their own story/subplot that ties in perfectly with the main plot. It's just such a satisfying, moving movie. I'll leave it to that, now go see it!
