Printemps ! [Mar. 27th, 2011|06:32 pm]
balbuflo
It's spring time ! Spring Squills and Anemones are blooming in the woods. Cormorants are gathering vegetable sticks to build their nest. Marsh Harriers are back from Africa.

C'est le printemps ! Les scilles et les anémones fleurissent dans les bois. Les cormorans construisent leur nid, et les Busards des roseaux sont de retour d'Afrique.

Epiphanie [Jan. 8th, 2011|04:03 pm]
balbuflo
In France, the second sunday after Christmas, we celebrate Epiphany, which is supposed to be the visit from the Magi to Jesus.  But for all children and bon vivants, it's especially time to eat what we call "la galette des rois" (kings's cake). It's made of puff pastry with almond cream filling. One or two lucky charms we call "feves" (beans) are hidden in it. If you find one in your slice, you become the king (or queen). If there is only one lucky charm, you can choose your queen (or king). The king and the queen have to wear a beautiful golden crown (made of cardboard).

A lot of people collect those "feves", and even I do. It's not that I have a passion for it, but I just started to keep them when I was a child, and never stopped. When I was young, the "feve" were made of plastic, and they were a few differents (most of them were kings, queens or baby Jesus). Now, they're usually made of ceramic and can even be gilded. And you can find so many different charms such as Christmas crib figures, animals, tea pots, jewels, famous pieces of art, or famous characters (Looney Toons, Disney, Asterix, etc). Of course, I prefer those figuring birds (or cats).

Here is a picture of a small part of my collection.

This little fellow is the reason I was so busy this last month.  I was doing a lot of illustrations of him and his animals friends, and I just finished the last one this morning. He is called "Millefeuille" and his book will be released at the end of November. /
Ce petit écureuil s'appelle Millefeuille. Je viens de passer plus d'un mois à illustrer ses aventures, et son livre sortira fin novembre.

Bretagne [Jun. 28th, 2010|11:13 am]
balbuflo
Some weeks ago, we went to Bretagne, to visit our friend Nykko (Children of Elsewhere's storywriter) and his family. There is an island there I absolutely wanted to see : it's called Rouzic Island. You go there with a boat but it's completely forbidden to set foot on the island. You can just watch ! At first, part of the island looks white, but when you get closer, you realize it's all Northern Gannet's nests. Here are three pictures I took there. /

Il y a quelques semaines, nous sommes allés en Bretagne rendre visite à Nykko et sa famille. Et je voulais absolument voir l'Ile Rouzic qui se trouve là-bas. Une vedette vous y emmène, mais il est interdit de débarquer. On peut juste admirer le spectacle que les oiseaux nous y offrent. De loin, une partie de l'île a l'air toute blanche. Et quand on se rapproche, on s'aperçoit que ce sont des milliers de Fous de bassan qui nichent là.
