The downstairs bakery

This Boulangerie in the heart of Boulogne (Paris) has been the most welcoming place during our stay. The people who work there have gone out of their way to help us with our poor French in a friendly manner. As we prepare to leave, I wanted to give them something to remember us by.

Ayrton 2015

Spring equinox comes about every year and,along the promise of warmer days and blossoming life, it carries a lingering sadness for a man who inspired me and from whom I learned many invaluable life lessons. So instead of giving in to the sadness, every year I create something to remember him as he was: a man full of joy for life, mazing strength and faith.

Ayrton Senna – celebrating 55 years from his birth.

Inspired silence

This blog have gone dormant for quite some time now, but I do not wish you for you to assume that this silence was meaningless or, worst, fruitless.

Life has taking me for one of those wild rides we all know very well, but this time I was determined to make the most of it.

I had the privilege to see some really cool stuff in these months and that has inspired some of the art I will be publishing in the upcoming days. It’s probably not what you have been used to see on this blog, but please be gentle in your critiques… New discoveries usually take us outside of the comfort zone and most of the time execution is not flawless.
