Yesterday, when Arthur Conan Doyle was born in 1859,

the wonderful little things of every day
as children's book illustrator.

The adventures of Gaston at the Beach.


Adventures and misadventures of Gaston

A Happy Day at the Beach.
When I drew this sketch, I'm not sure what I thought, I think I feel like going to the beach a lot, enjoy quietly and sunbathe. That's why I do not know how this kind of "piranhas" came out of the sea...
 "Keep Calm and Be Happy" is what Gaston thinks always!

Every day, I enjoy drawing more and more.

Mary Poppins


Very creative days, I had fun drawing Mary Poppins.
The sketchbook grows every day and then I have a great time coloring in Photoshop.

The details like the hat pin, the crochet gloves, the parrot umbrella, the boots and the magical travel bag, they
have made me really enjoy drawing this illustration.

I developed the composition with Mary Poppins in the foreground, above the clouds,
fly over the Park with Victorian houses and arrives to the children's house... where Bert, his friend, the chimney sweep greets her from the roof.
