I faved hundreds of shots so I made a folder in my favourites section for his work.
I am reminded of a quote by Henri Cartier-Bresson after the impressions I took with me from Joël's gallery:
"[photography] It is a way of shouting, of freeing oneself, not of proving or asserting one's own originality. It is a way of life."
Joël Sueur is gracious in sharing such a cornucopia of images covering different parts of his life: from the very intimate to the hilariously funny, and of course his wonderful street photography... it is all full of life! ... and weirdness ...

Working @ UbisoftNot even kidding, though my contract is only for two months so far. I was offered a unique opportunity to work alongside experts in the industry, and was recruited for concept art, illustration, and storyboarding, bouncing around to see where I might fit with my toony style. It's only been day one so far, but I'm working right alongside professionals and get to learn from them first-hand. Pretty sure I'm still reeling. Obviously I can't tell you what we're working on due to confidentiality agreements, but it's pretty cool to see all the behind-the-scenes action my own self.Working @ Ubisoft1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, this does mean a significant stall in my (slow) progress on HAT, my animation-to-be. While working at LASALLE I literally spent every minute animating if I wasn't busy assisting teachers; now the only time I'll have to work on it will be when I get home, and on the weekends. Finishing the illustrations for Voltaire's upcoming children's book
Last Ever Feature!So this is going to be my last ever feature since you need a premium membership to use them. My subscription is due to run out in 3 days, and for various reasons I don't plan on renewing it. As much as I would appreciate the sentiment, I would also ask that someone doesn't renew it on my behalf. Since I actually don't want DA to get more money, since they have proven time and time again that they don't care about their user base. They only care about money. I could really rant about this, but I am not going to right now.Last Ever Feature!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
If you would like to support me and my art, please consider my Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/KarlaChan since you would also actually gain access to more of my art work as well. Even if you don't want to pay money, then come and say hi and follow me for free. If I am honest I am also enjoying dA a lot less then I used to, and for a while I have been feeling like dA is a sinking ship.

GBD vs HomophobiaHello, all, and welcome to my anti-homophobia/anti-anti-gay Journal, where I will attempt to come up with a factual argument for as many anti-gay arguments as I can. If you have any other arguments you would like to add to this list, or any additional info you would like me to add to this Journal, leave me a comment below.GBD vs Homophobia2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's a choice!
When did you choose to be straight? Did you wake up one morning and say 'today I'm going to like the opposite gender!' And who would choose to go through the amount of stress LGBT people go through? Bullying, hatred, etc? And even if it was a choice, so what? People choose to be assholes and yet they can get married.
Hundreds of animal species exhibit homosexuality.
And you know what else is unnatural? Cars. Vaccines. Fact

Collection of Advice about DrawingIf you want to start drawing seriously without attending an art school, you will need to at least get yourself some guidance in form of books.Collection of Advice about Drawing4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's a collection of books I'd recommend in the beginning:
Betty Edwards: The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain http://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Drawing-Right-Side-Brain/dp/0007116454/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1307768924&sr=8-1
Very interesting concept that enables you to perceive drawing from an unusual perspective and that gives you lots of ideas and exercises on how to hone your skillls.
Ron Tiner: Figure Drawing Without a Model http://www.amazon.co.uk/Figure-Drawing-Without-Model-Tiner/dp/0715329324/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1307769226&sr=1-1
My absolute favourite! Such a witty and fantastic book. A must in every artist's book shelf.

If you are considering going into the industry....If you are an artist or want to be one, especially if you want to get into the VFX industry, you should watch this:If you are considering going into the industry....1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It touches on a few things I feel are important to understand as an artist and even as consumers of art:
1.) Art is not an exact science. It can be difficult to put a price tag on it, let alone the often very complicated processes of making it.
2.) Computers are tools that facilitate our work but they DO NOT do the work for us.
3.) Don't get into this industry for the money. If you go into this line of work, you do it because you love it. If someone happens to get lucky or has a really great idea and he/she hits it big, GREAT! Good for him/her. But don't go in expecting that to happen to you. Chances are it won't. If you are lucky, you will find a nice middleclass job you can support yourself and your family on for a while...... until....
4.) Unfortunately, a lot of employers see artists as disposable. When they no longer need you, they will kick you to the curb an

I met a couple of dA people and surprisingly, Jwittz! I was tweeting that I was going to NYC and apparently he was in the area as well! We eventually met up and chilled for a few minutes. We took very asian selfies and drew each other Pokemons
