I am a teacher too

posted in Life & travels  at 8.42 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France listening Depeche Mode
I started yesterday a workshop at ECV, in Aix-en-Provence, and it will be spread over a week (thank you Nathalie Brossard and Meike Kraus). This is what I love about my job/life, to be in Bali one day, teacher the next day... And the icing on the cake, the ECV is organizing an exhibition of TDC (Type Directors Club), which includes the creations of designers and typographers, all in the "Cité du livre" and its incredible entry!

I wanted to see the sea for several months, and even if it is only an hour's drive from our house, I had not found the time. It is a perfect landscape to begin a year : immense extent, no limits, bad weather from one side but the sun on the other !
 
I want to thank you, you who come from time to time or can not start your day without a ride on this site, you who follow me for 8 years or who had discovered this site in 2013 !
 
Obviously, I have dozens of projects in mind and most important coming in a few days: 3 ebooks ! I was left on 2 and then finally in the running, I made a third ! Shop sales also arrive on January 08 ( "official" day of winter sales in France ) . Then ... new posters , and many other things ! And and as always, my selection of projects to let your 2014 being inspired and creative !
