One of our friends was unable to come, so we prepared a little surprise for her over lunch: 5 postcards (because we were 5) on which we wrote a story spanning over all of them.
The idea was that she would get one postcard per day and would only find out the whole story piece by piece.
I squeezed in a quick sketch of my friend Annick, who was trying to find a name for the main character using the first letters of all our names. Needless to say the name got very strange, haha.
|So many weird names to choose from...|
I was pleasantly surprised at the turnout and also to see some people I had also met in Barcelona but not kept in contact with.
I wasn't very inspired, specially at first. Maybe because of the very busy scene or maybe just because I kept chatting with people and wasn't focusing much.

|I like this result better than the previous one|
|Kim, very focused on her craft|
She has a beautiful face. My last sketch doesn't do her justice, she looks much younger in reality.
|Myrto comes from Greece|
|So very Paris...|
We sat down for some quick sketching of the Pont Neuf. I always recall my history classes when I think about this bridge. Our teacher kept repeating that what was so special about this bridge at the time it was built, was the fact that there were no houses on it. Today that seems like such a normal thing.
I think I'll try adding some blue colour splashes on this one.
|No houses on this bridge! How shocking!|
