This drawing is my little tribute to the late Jean Giraud, Moebius, who died March 10th, 2012.
He changed the landscape of illustration, comics, sci-fi and cinema (contributing to movies like Alien). If you are not familiar with him, a good place to start is this article on Comics Alliance.
Of his most recent work, "Inside Moebius" is a fun reminder of how he bent the rules of comics and sci-fi into a Moebius strip.

I kept seeing the same poster all over Paris and wondered what it was all about.
Just for fun, I took a phone-photo everytime I saw it and made a little animated gif for my blog.
I looked at it again the other day, only to see that, the Everywhere folks had replied!
I thought it might be a fun thing to spread to Ireland (everywhere the other Tinderboxers are).
Check out their site.

did something a little different yesterday.. went with Mark and couple of his friends, to a life drawing class with a twist!
Haven't done life drawing since I left college so was a little rusty! The classes are modeled by burlesque performers...You are supposed to not take the drawing part too seriously and so they ask you to place the model in imagined scenes - most were pretty good at doing this but I found it hard to NOT try to draw it realistically.. and only added the French flag and the top of the Eiffel tower in the last two seconds (imagined scene was supposed to be somewhere romantic)

Independent's Day on Sunday the 22nd of April. How about doing a Tinderbox stall? It's 5 euro per table. Can book a full table, or even two if enough people are interested. We could sell zines, art prints, photographs, crafts, textiles, whatever you have, and it would be a nice chance to get together again!
