Lily and the dragonflies…

English translation below

Bon, tout d’abord, désolée de cette absence prolongée à peine mon nouveau blog installé. C’est que depuis, quelques petites choses ont changé. Déjà, j’ai de nouveau un travail, yeay ! Avec un salaire tous les mois et tout et tout, et ça fait quand même du bien. Sauf que c’est un boulot à temps plein donc forcément, je suis un peu moins disponible, c’est mathématique.

Et parallèlement, je ne sais pas si c’est mon nouveau formulaire de contact, l’approche des fêtes ou juste de la chance, j’ai un regain de commandes  d’illustrations pour cette fin d’année ! Bien évidemment, le boulot et les commandes rémunérées passent avant les « loisirs », et ça ne me laisse pas beaucoup de temps libre à vrai dire…

Ajoutez à cela le passage à l’heure d’hiver et les journées froides et courtes qui entrainent généralement chez moi une petite baisse d’énergie et vous aurez une bonne idée des raisons qui me tiennent à l’écart d’internet ces temps-ci.

Comme je l’ai dit sur ma page facebook, je pense que c’est juste l’histoire de quelques semaines, le temps que je me fasse à mon nouveau rythme de vie. Mais je ne compte pas déserter trop longtemps, ça non !

Et donc aujourd’hui je vous montre une de ces commandes, un portrait pour une jolie demoiselle. Elle m’a envoyé une photo d’elle en même temps que celle d’une jolie robe toute en dentelle de la dernière collection de Lie Sang Bong mais à part ça, j’avais carte blanche. L’incroyable dentelle de la robe imitant des ailes de libellule a tout de suite retenu mon attention, je me disais qu’il fallait que je parte de là. Et j’ai repensé à mon dessin à l’envolée de corbeau d’après une robe d’Alexander McQueen. Pourquoi ne pas en faire son pendant « joyeux » ? J’avais envie de quelque chose de coloré et lumineux, léger et pétillant comme une bulle de savon.

Au final, je l’aime bien ce dessin et son côté estival est plutôt bienvenu par ces températures glaciales. A priori la nouvelle propriétaire du dessin est plutôt contente du résultat aussi et ça, c’est quand même ce qui pouvait me faire le plus plaisir !

Et vous, vous aimez ?

First of all, I‘d like to apologize for deserting my blog just after I introduced you to its new version. For my defence, my life has changed a bit since then. First of all I started a new job after months of unemployment, and it’s so great to have a salary each month again, I feel relieved (and my boyfriend too, I can tell) ! But the thing is that it’s a full time job so I have less time for leisure, that’s a fact.

At the same time, I don’t know if it’s due to my new contact form or if it’s luck but I have a real increase of private orders for illustrations. As you can guess, my job and these orders come first and it doesn’t leave me much time to draw for myself…

You can add to that the fact that I am generally more tired during the cold short days of winter and you might understand the reasons why this blog has not been very updated lately.

But as I said on my facebook page, I think it’s just the matter of a few weeks, the time for me to adapt to this new rythm. But I don’t intend to be too far from here too long, hell no !

So today, I show you one of the private orders I just did, a portrait for a lovely girl. She just sent me a picture of her face and one of the dress she d’like to be drawn wearing, but no other request. I could do what I wanted. I was so struck by the beauty of the incredible lace of this Lie Sang Bong dress, imitating dragonfly wings, that I had to base the whole drawing on it. It occurred to me that I could do something a bit like what I did with the Alexander McQueen dress and the crow flight. But something joyful this time. I wanted this illustration to be colourful, luminous and light, fizzy like a soap bubble.

At the end, I’m quite happy with it and it seems its new owner is happy too, and that is the best reward I could get !

Most ferns like partial-to-deep shade and the soil requirements vary greatly from those that need damp soil to others which can tolerate dry sites. Try the evergreen Asplenium (spleenwort) if you want one which tolerates dryness, or Blechnum spicant, a native species, which is easy to grow in moist, acid conditions like a shady shrub border or woodland.
