Research

February 21, 2017

I've already talked about it here and here, I have taken an online course in a class given by Lilla Rogers and Zoe Tucker on Make Art That Sells. It was five very intensive but exciting weeks.

The timing was not ...

Currently : Screenprinting, my new Obsession!

First Screenprint

September 29, 2016

As you may have noticed on my Instagram's feed or in my recent posts, I’m currently obsessed with screenprinting. When I say obsessed, I mean obsessed by everything about this technique : the materials, , the "How to-what to draw-how to represent it".
