About Me

CURRENT MISSION

painting and drawing portrait / figurative art and strange comics

ABOUT ME

I am the guy silently drawing you in the corner of a cafe. I like to watch and listen, enjoying perfect moments. Fascinated by bright or special persons. Taking notes, writing a lot as a conscienscious cartoonist as well... Looking for connection as much as possible.

PHILOSOPHY

Don't look for happiness, look for your own density. Cultivate your own taste and become what you are. Hey, remember you have less that 20000 days to live. Try to be happy, just to be an example? Shit happens. Humor is the politeness of despair? Enough.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

hosting and being hosted... whatever helps when i'm available (so sorry that I am often so busy)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had great moments with couchsurfers (mostly through other veryactive CS friends), some of them become real friends. I guess anybody far from home is naturally becoming more open-minded and positive, let's enjoy this graceful state.

Interests

art, books, compulsively drawing,... a couple of things in my mind here and some crazy stuff that might be interesting for a psychanalyst...

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Almodovar, Chaplin, Kaurismaki, Woody Allen, Monty Python, Truffaut, Lars von trier, Gondry, Chuck Norris (not all of them), Kubrick, Paul Thomas Anderson

Music: be indulgent, I'm born in the 70's and I had to cross the 80's and 90's as a teenagers. By the way, I took time to listen to Gainsbourg+Brassens+Brel+Ferre.

Books: Dostoievski, Tolstoi, Albert Cohen, Stendhal, Kundera, Voltaire, Hugo definitely sucks, Orwell...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I had a good job in engineering, I have quit to become a painter...

(something else: God is in my fridge (people come from allover the world to see that): I replaced the lamp with a radio on catholic channel so that I can listen to prayers when I look for a piece of cheese - I also put some colored lights and a bright virgin too. I'll be ashamed of this very soon.)

Teach, Learn, Share

drawing comic strips, portraits, oil painting. Now I'm working on live model... (I also can give you powerful tips to achieve a complete failure with gorgeous person pretending to seduce you or give you the way to switch off any TV)
