Marie Antoinette, avec sa tête

Still not having much time to blog these days, but Mark from Paper Raven Art, whose blog and drawings I love, sent me this Marie Antoinette Award, and I wanted to enjoy it and pass it on!

Here are the Rules for the Award:

1. Please put the logo on your blog
2. Place a link to the person from whom you received the award
3. Nominate at least 7 or more blogs
4. Put the links of those blogs on your blog
5. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them.

And I'm passing it on to :

Jim cool drawings and subjects

The Happy Painter great paintings, wonderful portrait galery

Captain Elaine cool journal pages and lovely paintings

Mia great drawings and journal pages

Linda Sarah wonderful illustrated poems and songs

Freebird cool and beautiful drawings

Kathleen beautiful art, great drawings and paintings, love her style

All nice, fun people with great blogs and great art - every one from Every Day Matter's group, except Linda Sarah, who does amazing whimsical, fun and wonderfully illustrated stories, songs and poems.
All done!

Oh, by the way, my message title, Marie Antoinette avec sa tête, means Marie Antoinette with her head, because the poor woman lost it in 1793...

Un iguane, un crabe, et six trucs sur Bibi

Two new ocean related animals for my calendar!
I wonder if I'll manage to get it finished in time... I like this one, he's cute in an ugly way. I'd love to have a pet iguana (but only if I could leave someplace where he could be free).

This one gave me trouble. Not easy at all. He looks a lot like Captain Crab - Bob Square Pant's boss (don't know if he's got the same name in English?)

And I've been tagged by Lynn to say 6 random things about myself...
So, very randomly...
1) I didn't know I could draw anything other than rotten doodles until may 2008 when I found art blogs and tried to draw something for real. I've had a lot of fun with drawing since then.
2) I don't watch tv much, except a few animes and comics with my daughter (I mostly hear them) and sometimes an action or funny movie or tv show.
3) I love to laugh. I laugh easily, I have a rather rotten humor and I tend to friend people who don't take things very seriously. On the surface, at least.
4) I love to read. And write. And dream. I have a very active unreal life... I never get bored when I'm alone.
5) I've stopped smocking twice. Hope this one is the last one. Been not smocking for 1 year and a half now. I've spent nearly half of my life smocking, began very young. Not proud of it at all.
6) I feel at home everywhere and nowhere. I like where I am because I'm used to it and I've made friends, but I could easily go elsewhere. I'm staying mostly for my daughter to keep her friends and daddy near.
Now I'm tagging every one who's coming here on my blog! Feel free to play or not!
The rules:1. Link to the person or persons who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.
I've spent way to much time on the internet today... It was great!

Deux ours polaires, un vieux phoque barbu et deux auteurs en -da

I have not been blogging much recently. My real life has been a bit complicated, especially at work - it is, still, but I enjoyed the blogging and sharing, and I don't want to abandon that.
I didn't draw much but I did two pages for a calendar I want to make for me and my family. If I manage to finish it on time, I'll print it, I think. I like to have deadlines, otherwise I usually do nothing...
Two "little" bears for january. I found them in a cool book about oceans.

An old bearded seal for february. He's called "bearded" seal, I don't know why, he seems to have a mustache, to me, not a beard.

And the last two books I read - not reading a lot of serious stuff these days, more silly things on the internet than real books...
The one on the left is from French best seller author Anna Gavalda, the kind of books you read in two or three days and nights, and get tired for not sleeping because of it.
The one on the right is from Luis Sepulveda, and as usual, it's awesome, and makes me want to go to Patagonia now.

That's all! Hopefully there will be more soon...
