The cover is designed by me! But the idea behind this is a collaborative project: I ask graphic designers and typographers to create unique works. This year's edition will feature exclusive designs by Jason Carne, Talenta Priyatmojo, Kelsy Stromski, Ethan Kowaleski, Jef Millotte, Reno Orange, Francis Choquet, Salih Kucukaga, Grabuge and more.

In the UK it is said we use 4,861 disposable paper cups a minute, which is over seven million a day, and less than one in 400 cups are recycled. To combat this problem, G . F Smith has launched Extract, a paper that aims to rid the planet of the waste generated by disposable coffee cups lined with plastic.

I am happy to propose the first ones in the shop: Vintage Share certificates! For now here are some of the photos, you can see more at instagram.com/iammrcup

Adobe Local Gems

 
I also did a great collaboration with Adobe France : I share with you my adopted region, Arles and Provence.  Adobe asked me to illustrate my region, in collaboration with Gérard Trang superchinois810, it was perfect considering the beautiful images he made here! This creative project called "Local Gems" makes you discover my favorite cities: Uzès where I love to lose myself in the small streets, Arles where I have my studio since 2015 and Avignon. Despite these difficult times, we worked together on the various tools of Adobe, making our creativity speak. I combined his photos, watercolor stains I scanned, and old papers with texts and illustrations, I found at the flea markets I go to every sunday.
 
Check the full project here, and these are "parts" of the global image.
