Lichtenstein, one of my favorite artists, is probably the reason I chose grapic arts as a career and as a way to express myself...
He is really the cross -or the merge!- between illustration, comics, graphic design and arts... Taking a simple comics frame and turning it into a huge canvas has always a magical effect on me... If you like pop art, don't miss "Evolution", the late works of Lichtenstein at the newly refurbished Paris Pinacothèque.

And my crush of the moment goes to... Guillaume Canet! Not only as an actor, recently in "Ensemble c'est tout" a lovely film taken from a great book.. but also as a director in the breath taking suspense of "Ne le dis a personne" in which François Cluzet was awarded as best actor at the Cesars 2007 (3 Cesars all in all with best director for our heartthrob above).
... So rent the two films and enjoy!

Sorry I've been slow lately, it's just that I'm on vacation and internet is not very accessible where I've been (it's a good break from time to time! I'm an addict!) and right now I'm actually whale watching so I'll have some nice picts for you soon...
I actually quite like this one above too. I'm gonna need it in winter. (sigh).

I believe that we can each do a little thing every day to (try to) save the planet... not really idealistic, more realistic actually.
Example: in many shops or supermarkets in Canada you have the option to buy "the green bag" for 99cents and re-use it as many times as you can instead of the horrible pollution of plastic bags. Personally i think it's quite good looking and I've been using it not only to the market but as a summer handbag too... A green fashion statement!
