Snowman - Christmas Card


Oizo the Odd Bird


Do not eat me please!

This is a story about Katy Stripescat. Guess what she got for last Christmas – An enormous pink dog! Firstly, she hates pink as it makes her fill sick. Secondly, this dog is far too big for her! And the distant cousin who gave her that present knew those two information. It has been a year that Katy Stripescat does her best not to be eaten by Doublegreenmole – this is how she named her dog. Good luck Katy Stripescat! I hope you will get a smaller present for next Christmas. :)

A last word about...

the baby pigeons. They are gone! The first one left us the day before yesterday and the second one flew off today. I am so glad! I'm going to sleep well until next Summer - no more stress! It means also that until next Summer, there won't be any articles about them anymore! So lucky you are Folks! :)

I hate Vocabulary lists

Our teacher of translation class gave us a list of English words to learn by heart for tomorrow (October 19th 2009). It looks quite commonplace to learn a list of vocabulary - but this one perplexes me. Does our teacher want to ruin our weekend? Here some words from my vocabulary list:

Nothingness: le néant

a miscarriage: une fausse couche

still-born: mort né

the mourners: les parents et amis du défunt

the bereavement: le deuil

a vault: un caveau

a hearse: un corbillard (my favourite one)

a wreath: une couronne mortuaire

an undertaker: un entrepreneur des pompes funèbres

the late Mr Jones: feu Mr Jones

the death-rate: le taux de mortalité

stone-dead: raide mort

to be slipping away: être près de la fin

doddering: gâteux

to be getting on (in years): ne plus se faire tout jeune

to be near death: être à l'agonie

A Pointed Bird

I have been doing several Christmas decorations on top of my illustrations - hence this pointed bird. Actually it is a kind of sketch. I will make it with a thiker paper and rework the colours. I'll make lots of pointed birds to hang them on my Christmas Tree. I have time until Christmas - Phew!

A Pointed Bird

Miss Ribbon

This evening, you may have noticed a quite strange new button on my blog (the left side bar). This is Miss Ribbon - I created her a few weeks ago. What is she doing here? Well I saw lots of people that do have on their blog commercial / corporate ads and this is ugly - if I can put it this way. I became attached to my blog. I doll it up to make it pleasant to the eyes and to make people want to spend a little bit of their time on my blog. Ads are rubbish - it makes your blog look like rubbish. I do not even want to know the content of a blog when there are loads of ads - it is a pity! So if you do want to take care of your blog, listen to Miss Ribbon and remove the ads from your blog!

Spread the word Folks.

If you do want Miss Ribbon to spread the word on your blog, here a code:

Miss Ribbon is Against Commercial / Corporate Ads

Or if you do prefer something else (not my website):

Droping down dead actually

Nine days have passed since my last article – a quite boring article for those who hate pigeons – and I am dying to hang myself, but I am too tired – or too fearful. No sooner have I started the second year of my studies (Anglo-Saxon Litterature and Civilization) than I am already weighed down by work and things to settle. I cannot find the time to update my beloved blog, keep on doing my illustrations and start a new series of photographs. This is so frustrating! Every time I get back home from university, I plan to pull myself together in order to draw and take new photographs, and in the end I fall asleep. When I wake up, I just have time to do my homework, to eat dinner and to take a bath. It is infuriating not to have time and willpower – I always fall asleep, is it because I am really tired or because I am lazy? – to make the things I have the urge to do.

I have to get used to my new timetable, then everything is going to be just fine! I have to get fit again.

To put it clearly, what happened during these past nine days? I have discovered that even if I succeeded in moving up to the second year of my studies, I will have to pass the exams of History of Art again! I have had it! Teachers are planning to go on strike again, we will know in November. They also love to give loads of work to do at home and to tell us we should bring ourselves up to the required standard; is it our fault we did not have class for six months, last year?

The pigeons are fatter than ever and do gain strength, this is great!

I am getting weak, could someone slap me in the face?

My willpower is telling you, I will keep on drawing and making photos!! I can do it!

About the photo contest organized by the Hauts-de-Seine (see the article), I just wanted to inform you that I lost :) – I am too tired to feel something. If you are interested in seeing the six winners, here the link:

Alive! The baby pigeons are alive!

You are going to hate me, I know, as I'm going to talk about the pigeons on my balcony again! I also do not promise this is the last article about them. I'm so fond of them! So, despite the cold weather we do have, the eggs have hatched and the baby pigeons are still alive! Day after day, they are growing larger. In a few weeks, they will fly off and I hope that until next Summer there will be no more eggs.

As promised, I have uploaded two photos of my mum's scarf in a tree:

Pocket Handkerchief

As I have fallen ill, and it is not getting any better, I have decided to make my own custom-made handkerchief. I spend my time blowing my nose, it does get on my family's nerves, because it is very noisy and violent - I think someday I'll blow my nose up. I speak to you, ill or depressed people, this pocket handkerchief is made for you! It is very absorbent and it cheers you up :)

I'm not stupid, at 1:10Am, I'm half asleep and half hallucinating, I'm sorry for this queer article. Good Night Folk! Sleep well!

The Nasopharyngitised St.Ainolopa


What's new at home?

My Home

In 2 days, to my utter despair, it is the start of a new university year and I am hopeless. As I said in one of my previous articles, I have a lot of problems with the administration and this is not the end. I'm quite sure that I move up to the second year of my studies, but this F university is hiding from me an unpleasant surprise. To top it all, I'm ill since yesterday - a nasopharyngitis. My mum is in complete despair about her tapestry; a few weeks ago, we received an e-mail from a woman who was interested in buying the tapestry "Verdure", but she vanished into thin air, I mean she does not answer our e-mails. In a nutshell, Nobody seems to want to buy it! Do not tell me it is because of the crisis! 100€ instead of 113€, does it interest Someone? Please!

This is my last weekend, and I'm going to hang around.

New Illustrations, YeahYum!

Little Fox with beautiful eyelashes

Wolfy, The Little wolf with beautiful eyelashes (2009)

Isn't it cute ?! I've been drawing intensively for a month now. I've made some Christmas cards but I'm not done yet. I'll upload on this blog, several illustrations. I think I'm going to make some prints (thanks to my beloved Moo) and sell a few ones - above all my Christmas cards. We'll see if it interests someone. This drawing is not the best among my illustrations, so arouse your curiosity and come see me later!
