This is one of my favourite websites. It’s French, so it can be tricky to find your way about, but it is totally worth it once you do. Your favourite bands, as you’ve never or rarely seen them, as well as what will be your new favourites. Beautifully captured by French film maker Vincent Moon, [...]
Cities, robots, bears and penguins. A lot of penguins. This is my work. I am in my fourth year at Art College in Limerick, Ireland, and started drawing in this kind of style about two years ago.
