A paper portrait of amazing photographer Maria Del Rio and her fabulous blue hairs!
Here is a little paper animation I worked on this last month for Oh Joy + Target summer collection preview. Always a pleasure to work with Joy, we like the same things! The products are amazing and will be online in all Target stores in the US and Canada on Sunday, May 25th for six weeks only! YAY to picnic parties!
Here is a paper bunny I made commissioned by Laurie who is expecting a baby girl for june. For her indian theme nursery she picked the coolest wallpaper and suspended crib, I am dying over the cuteness of these. It makes me want to have another baby…and decorate a new room.
Shop the camel bunny on pink backdrop here! (the kit doesn’t include the feathers)
I am currently working on a colorful little video with Oh Joy for her Target summer collection coming out in may! Making paper miniature bag. picnic basket…fun!
2013 was definitely the best year of my life! A year so full of joy! I was lucky to work for clients I’ve always dreamed to work for such as Milk Magazine, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Gap Baby among many others. A beautiful trip to Maui and fun weekends in Coachella, Palm springs, Los Angeles, NY…! I enjoyed so much being pregnant and the birth of my baby girl was the most beautiful and magical moment. I had so much fun working on my baby announcement and decorating her nursery. All the new beautiful and talented people I met and friends I made! The workshops I’ve been to, the new techniques I learned. And I am so thankful for all the bunny customers. I am so glad for all the support and encouraging words. Thank you thank you thank you!
Here is to 2014! I am looking forward to see my baby girl growing up (even if I wish she’d stay small), seeing her first steps and listening to her first words. And I am so exciting for the future illustration projects I’ll be working on! I am also working on new products for the shop I hope I’ll be able to share soon. I hope 2014 is a year of travel: South America, Morocco, Japan… and starting with France in february! My brother, grand-parents and friends will finally meet Lula! I am so so excited and impatient. We are also planning on a road trip to Arizona in spring! How fun!
As for my resolutions, I want to learn more about knitting and weaving. I want to learn ukulele! My husband offered my one for christmas! Now I don’t have anymore excuses not to do it. Also getting back to running, read more and find a hobby to share with my husband, we’ve been talking about taking lessons together, maybe photography or cooking…

What are yours?
I just received my Milk Anniversary box! This is so cool to see all my illustrations in the catalogue and awesome to be part of a project like this. I’ve always had a huge admiration for Milk Magazine, this is such a beautiful magazine. Everything is perfectly done, very tasteful and trendy. Even if I was 8 months pregnant when they asked me if I was available to work on it, it was impossible for me to say no telling myself it would be the very last project before Lula’s birth! And I am glad I did! The catalogue turned out so well and the box is amazing.
How cute is this little cat purse from Muchacha?!
And the famous knitted pigeon from Oeuf NYC! haaaa! Each object is so cool, I’d love to show you them all but my post would be too long! So you have to buy the box!
Ok one more!Oh and one last thing: have you seen the teaser I made for the special occasion?
I can finally share with you the illustrations and animation I did for one of my favorite magazine. When a couple months ago Milk contacted me to create a teaser for their 10 years anniversary I was so honored and excited and even if I told myself I wouldn’t accept anymore project because I was getting close to my due date, I couldn’t say no to that one!
To celebrate their 10 years anniversary they imagined a box published in 300 copies only. Inside a unique selection of 17 products designed exclusively for Milk by some of the best kids brands: Bobo choses, Little Marc Jacobs, Oeuf NYC, N2, Very French Gansters…

Here is a little behind the scene shot of the very last client project I worked on these last couple weeks! Happy and colorful as usual! I should be able to share it with you in august. I was suppose to rest earlier but you know how it is! When a client you’ve always dreamt to work for offer you a project, you just can’t refuse! For me it always happened when I have other plans…like going on vacation. And I love my work so much, I’ll just do whatever I can to make it work!
