La Fôret

These days I am very busy, with little time for personal projects other than taking an hour to go out to sketch... which I didn't manage to do in more than a week :) But between this week and the previous one I found little moments that I profited for myself. 

It was already some time that I had an idea for an illustration, one without any context, but just for the pleasure of drawing, and just for my pleasure while doing it. It took me some days, stealing time from here and there, but today I finished it. It is funny, because it is quite difficult to see a fox... but while I was drawing this picture I saw a fox three times in the same day. I wonder if they are always there, and it was me who just by then I was ready to really spot one.

Luckily, I didn't see any bear...

Little village life

Little villages as where I live do not have many services. In fact, in Crozet there's only a bakery (boulangerie), and not much else. But, once a week, the barber comes in with his portable barber shop and parks it in the parking lot next to the bakery. 

Isn't that authentic?

After finishing this entry, I grew curious and looked in the web thinking maybe the man had a website... and I found this article 
If you are curious too, don't hesitate to have a look!! His, it's a story of courage and survival...
The article is in French though ;)
