So I have been dreading this next post – of course I had to move on from the previous posts which was always going to be an issue.

I am not really ready to move on – glad to have a bit of my uncle in here…I know sometime he would wander in here (silently) and reclaim some shots that I had taken…I want to hang on to whatever is left of him.  I want to share it with the ones who knew him and loved him the way I did…

Still a few day ago I received a package – It came from Potugal from a friend and it brought instant laughter in the  house that was bathing in deep sadness at the time – like a little bubble of fresh air and happiness, a little bracket that reminded me /us that life goes on and that no matter how sad we are we will smile again and nothing else has changed…

This little man inspired papelustro with The global Cookbook cover which she contributed to.  I was not expecting him to turn up on my front door 🙂 We have called him Fernando.

Papelustro is a designer I have come across in the early days of Fuelmyblog – she has a very strong identity – each design has Papelustro written all over. As many artists she is having a tough time living of her skills and talent – I am too pleased to support her work here. I truly believe in her work and think the girl needs a break. You can buy her unique quirky cards here.

BD Festival

The BD festival that takes place every year in Angoulême was great – this year we queued up for the cartoonist Tebo aka Captain Bicepts …a very popular bande dessinée amongst the french children. Tebo was great to meet, in spite of a long queue of fans he spent time talking while signing autographs BD style and had a great sense of humour. A TV series is due out in 2009 and there will be an English version too…watch out for Tebo…I was charmed.

Nous sommes passés au festival de la BD qui a lieu tous les ans à Angoulême – cette année nous avons pris notre courage à deux mains et avons fait la queue  (2 heures…merci Françoise pour le sandwich au gorgonzola…) pour se faire dédicacer Captain Biceps…une des Bd préferée de “Bein Ouais”. Tebo est charmant…vraimentt sympathique et s’est appliqué malgré le monde à faire une dédicace que mon pt’it fiston gardera probablement toute sa vie…

à suivre les aventures de Captain Biceps en dessin animé cette année puis une BD numéro 5 prévue en 2010…
