A movement, which we all believe to know, leads us to the marvelous. Because movement is a challenge for those who are frozen in the moment.
It's fabulous, so let's go to the new year.
The mountain drawn by Loriane is in fact the 3rd track of the symphonic album composed by Olivier, alias OAMM.
One song per month, twelve in total, from December to November, which ends the series with a requiem. The paintings were put together in a notebook, but for February - the mountain, I remade the painting in a larger format.
One more richochet on the Medina of Casa, this cannot be refused.
You have to see the whole project to understand the concept. The greeting card takes up the markers: scenario, colorful portraits, little winks here and there.
- Have you any slippers?
We had a good laugh with Loriane when we composed this humorous drawing, inspired by the boutiques of Casa.
Paris, Casa, Montreal.
The card was entirely drawn by Loriane, on a digital tablet. It is a relief to hand over the work to the younger ones.
Write down your favorite words in your New Year, obvious or mysterious.
Gabrielle's idea, collective production
A card inspired by a walk on the Li River.
Quite frankly, I struggled on this painting. I did it again several times, Gabrielle's face was never done right.
There are times like this in an artist's life when nothing goes right.
11 years of watercolor cards
The tradition of sending personalized Christmas cards goes back much longer. But from 2010, it's one watercolor per year that serves as a greeting card.
So I continue with the cards from previous years, my tests in digital drawing or quite simply scribbled on a sheet of paper.
Head in the stars
The 2010 card is a kind of photo montage. The silhouette of the children is embedded in a montage of images (distant mountains, starry sky, shining star). A poetic and artistic high-tech photo version.
In front of the Kremlin
Welcome to Moscow for this Russian version of the greeting card. Against the backdrop of a snowy red square (beautiful contrast), the troupe sports beautiful chapkas (detail added by the artist for the sake of integrating local customs and costumes!).
But where are Gauthier and Gabrielle?
The 2008 card is the result of joint work: drawing of the characters by Emmanuel and creation of the tree and coloring by Gabrielle using a computer. Top-down illustration of the hidden images of the almanacs on the principle "Where's Charlie?"
La mulți ani!
The 2007 map was a big job. Indeed it is a mini-comic which required the writing of a scenario, the location shots for the sets of the illustrations and the staging of the characters. The result is 2 comic pages.
I can't remember which software I used ...
Happy new year 2006
This map is a simple pencil drawing.
Why make it complicated?
On the way to the big trip, we take a seat on the wild ducks.
Drawing by Emmanuel, colored by Mamiria.
In front of the tree
This is Emmanuel's first greeting card.
Pencil drawing, computer colorization.
