Art Wishes
Even more art days with other artists
Last week, I had Sieskja come to my place and we arted A LOT!!!
Though I often need inspiration, time and all the good stuff to work on a serious illustration, I also love create faster pieces. And when you have an art buddy working with you, it's easy to  increase prductivity!
New art supplies

I'm also looking for new paper for watercolour sketchbooks. I need it big and smooth. I'm currently looking into purchasing bamboo mixed media paper, as it's more eco friendly than cotton!!!

Donation friends! This article is for the amazing people that wish to support me through donations of any kind. (love you)
Because I never stop questionning our world, I have come to reject quite a few products that I was using before without wondering of the impact these could have on our Planet.
And because I don't want to be in a situation in which I have to decline a generous offer, I want to clarify everything beforehand ^^
To give you some more ideas, here are my two wishlist journals (in which you can find FREE stuff you can do to make me happy) (note: some things might be outdates, ask if confused!)

Before we start, if you wish to support me with actually getting something in exchange, here is my commission info: Commission Info [Reopened]

Inktober days 14 & 15: hi guys, sorry I haven't posted my work, I've been working on a switch aroung with ScarletCortez & xXBubbleNuggetXx
But because they don't match the rest of my Inktober project, I decided not to post them in the continuity, and will be sharing with you the complete template once everyone has finished their part. Here are my sketch, line and colour from the switch:

I feel very bad because I don't have the experience to properly ink and colour these pieces, and I feel like I've just ruined everything.…

No Inktober sharing today, but a really good 15min documentary about clothing recycling.
You know how much the subject is important to me. Yesterday I bought a belt made of recycled threads, wonder how many of the clothes that made it were actually never worn...
Hello, just came back from Veggie World Paris, was really cool, got a lot of cool stuff ^^
I'll be skipping the Inktober features today, chill and do my own piece, hopefully not too late!
Have a nice weekend!!!
(I also have to create a Zine in less than half a day ... really ...)
