Brandweek part 2

And one more picture made for brandweek, for their cover and inner article. I have been asked to paint the Starbuck's mermaid in an attitude similar to The Scream by Munch. I had quite some fun with it !

Colors !

Feeling so tired and lazy these days ... Maybe Paris is a bit getting on my nerves, I need to push the colours on my recent stuff to forgot the greyness of things !

The Opening

Today is a special day, sort of. I finally created the blog I promised myself to do, so much easier to give news and art samples that way !
