Some weeks ago I was asked in my Q&A how I did to keep motivation and to get better. A part of the answer is "art challenge". You force yourself to do it, the start is sometimes not easy but at the end you're just so proud of yourself that you can't wait for the next one !
So I made one for August ! One drawing everyday to get better and to have fun !
And I'm a bit late to share it here, Supa Nam did it earlier, but you can join us ! You can start later, you can draw only the one you want, it's just for fun !

Seing all the friends, and international friends doing this will certainly make my month !
I made a facebook group so you can share it and see all the others : www.facebook.com/groups/august…
And I'll make an article on my website forsakenstar.com

And maybe another one next year ?

This Challenge is probably the coolest thing I found to change my mind from all the troubles this summer !




I also have another collaborative drawing idea in mind. I even have this one for years ! I'll launch it later.

I mean litteraly !

I'm absolutely half dead as I'm speaking but at the same time excited. I haven't had a day off since.. hmm the weekend 10 days ago ? I mean, a day off, is a day I spend writing on my blogs, making comics, planning projects. Actually I don't know what's a real day off.
I work over 10 hours everyday since friday. I mean 10 hours, without the hours on photoshop at home late. And without any sure money at the end of the month. So that's also scary. And can be depressing when you think of that money issue. Maybe, in the end, I'm too tired to worry ? But I still found time to work personnal projects, I wrote a big music blog note ( forsakenstar.com/?p=1210&p… ), made a comic to speak about my anxiety issues ( tapastic.com/episode/142084 ), also went to the micro-physicist that is exhausting for that. But I go on, and really hope this month will help for the future ! Make a change. For anxiety and work ! (I'm saying this for 5 years).

Anyway ! I'm doing by biggest exhib' this month. Biggest because there'll be tons of visitors. Because it's a big mall. But also because we could print 2 HUGE pieces of my stuff. It's very certainly my favourite part of the exhib' ! This is so impressive !
Also, I made a funny burglar and thousand of people got the printed ad for the mall, and I'm in it !! Forsaken ta mailbox !
SEE :



They also asked me to draw their new mascot, so you can see some colours tests here :
mascotte-auchan-super-loup2-01

Okay, and Muse released a new awesome single yesterday so that added to my excitement. BUT THE NEW ALBUM IS IN A FEW DAYS, I CAN'T FUCKING PUTAIN DE WAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITT !!!!!
(yeah, I'll talk about music in every note here)

Hi guys, it's been a while.

I'm often telling myself I should update my deviantart so I just did. Finally ! That's also because we quickly talked about deviant yesterday with :iconmymyartzone: & :iconnyu-teamind:

I'll add here all the "finished drawings". (even if I'm never myself sure that my pieces are finished)
The rest, sketches, music fangirling, and all is on tumblr, twitter, tapastic for the comics, patreon if you wanna support my stuff or facebook. (also instagram, pinterest for awesome inspiration, ello, behance, linkedin, vimeo, soundcloud, teepublic, reddit... I'm everywhere and love trying new websites! If there are some I didn't say, let me know ! I intend to try periscope once I'll get a great smartphone.)
Also, there's my website for the store and everything, blog notes, you can also draw for the Epic Book Of High Five, send pics... I'm so proud of the work I did all alone on this website !

So what happened during that time ? Hmm.. I'm still just a dreamer working day and night on my stuff, music and brand. Hoping to find a better dayjob next year and to finally make it with my work. A bit frustrating to see the world going on when you're still here, hoping, but I still do my best !
Ho, also you can see tons of pictures on my 2014 review (I love making those blog notes, it brings back such great memories)

that's a bit like that in my head

This year is maybe one of the craziests.
I finally see a little improvement in my freelance work, I'm taking part in pop-up stores, exhibitions, collaborations with great people. I'm far from making a living of it, mostly because the stock of my online shop costs a fucking lot, but I fucking need to work a lot so all this gets better. And to leave my depressing day job if I don't find another one !
Also, this year is the one of personnal issues. You know, many people are naturally anxious. I am too for years and it got worse for a few months since I can't even sleep and got some kinda stitches in the chest because of that. How crazy is that to feel this bad for just something in your head ? That is why I didn't make as much real finished artworks recently. Years ago, when that anxiety came I made my best pieces that led to awesome collaborations and feedback (to not name Shaka Ponk or Skip The Use) but this time it is a huge void when I try. Weirdly, it's not drawing that I wanna do but music. I just aim to make something for music since it keeps helping me !

Music ! YEAH ! That's the craziest of the crazy things this year ! All those HUGE CONCERTS !!!! AND HUGE ALBUMS!! AWESOME DISCOVERIES THANKS TO SPOTIFY (DAMN, STOP THAT WITH THE UPPERCASES !!!!) I'm seing so many myths this year !!! *_* Can't find a better motivation to go on. I even fucking gave some of the stickers I made to Architects !! (my favourite Hardcore band) Also The singer said I'm awesome. And I shaked Frank Iero's hand. Half of the year, and it's already the best part of it ! PUTAIN D'SA FUCKING RACE ! (okay, okay, stop fangirling !)

So as soon as I get back to a normal life, I'll make tons of awesome stuff ! And this is a promise.

I'm a monkey by sow-ay
I'm a monkey
I wanted to try something different as I follow many impressive traditionnal artists.
Probably the one I spent the most hours on. I made this thinking of "I'm a Monkey", Shaka Ponk fan group.
