busy with life :)

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 27, 2012, 4:48 AM
Hey folks!

I wrote a very same journal entry on Sept. 2010 and the only thing I can say is that, as of today, a day of January 2012, nothing changes :) Life is still pretty busy on my side, artistic projects are blooming and my baby girl is growing. I'm exhausted but extremely happy of what I have today :)

Thank you for the continuous support and kind words :)

Love you :heart:

It took me not less than 9 month to decide to post a new journal here on DA. Even though I emptied my gallery, and that I'm gone since last February, I'm amazed to see that I still receive +devwatches, notes and comments from fans and sweet people. Thanks so much. I can't help but stop my hiatus and to come here to thank you all. You are awesome ♥

I hope you're all doing great and that you still have the creative mojo!

Thank you!

Illustration is an entire part of our everyday life, especially for children. Children books are childhood memories worth framing. Fanciful backdrops for that magical space between dreams, reality and sleep. It's also a creative communication tool, which can't live without talented authors.

For this first issue, i decided to share my vital interest in children’s literature and to showcase +50 of some of the best illustrators pieces i had the chance to discover through deviants galleries since 2 years and half.

In next each new volume, i will also make a special feature of an illustrator.

These artists are using a lots of different medias : watercolor, acrylic, gouache, ink, pencils, collage, prints, and also digital computer-based tools.
