Mandala

Une pièce décorative d’extérieure conçue pour agrémenter notre jardin. L’intention avouée est purement esthétique avec le jeu de strates géométriques, les insertions de lisières de mirroir et les lignes gravées au poincon sans la surface du bois.

La fracture qui traverse la pièce en diagonale telle une faille techtonique n’est pas sans rappeller l’éclair au visage du personnage de Ziggy Stardust. Le décès de Bowie venait d’être annoncé lorsque je travaillais sur la pièce. Une bien triste nouvelle à l’époque.

On me demande souvent si l’échelle fait partie de l’oeuvre…

Sgt Peppers Drumskin Replica

The legendary custom bass drumhead used on the front cover of the Beatles’ iconic 1967 album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band went up for auction in 2008 at Christie’s London, and it realized a price of £541,250, Wow !

That indeed cut up my attention and I decided for fun to make a replica with a vintage look on a 30 inches diameter drumhead like the original. The original design was conceived by Peter Blake who also designed the famous album cover. The legend states that Blake hired a Fairground artist to execute the painting. Of course I did my version in a more modern way.  I started with a multiplayers stencil as a guide, and painted the piece with an airbrush and finished it by hand. I did two copies and they look very different. Made by hands !

A Splendid time is guaranted for all !

The Masters’ Tarot Full 78 cards Deck

At first, I have to admit that I’ve been inspired by the tarot images shown in the intro sequence of the great tv show Carnivàle. But after some researches I realized that their images where cool but not really corresponding to real tarot iconography. So I decided to have my own take by creating a custom tarot based on the paintings of the great art history masters. From the originals, I only kept  the contour lines, marble like textured background, and fonts as an hommage.

To make the deck coherent, I focused mainly my search around Medieval and Renaissance paintings and have them matched as closely as possible with images reflecting the generally accepted meanings for each card. I follow a few books for meaning and iconography.
All my images are taken from internet, with resolution large enough to have crisp pictures. I worked on the project on and off over a period of six months. Fun !

PRICING :

1 deck + velvet black poche with lining = 45 $ CA. + shipping
Available in French and English.

Have a look at the samples. It’ s almost a detective job to identify all the painting on the cards…..

The Prisoner – Costume du N° 6

Quelle ne fut pas une grande surprise pour les fans, avec la sortie de la série remasterisée en format Blue-Ray d’enfin pouvoir apprécier les vraies couleurs des éléments de décors, accessoires et costumes. C’est particulièrement vrai pour le costume iconique du numéro 6, le personnage principal.

The Prisoner Esp Cards

Les cartes Zener font parties d’un jeu de 25 cartes comportant 5 symboles déclinés en 5 couleurs et formés d’un nombre de lignes croissant : cercle, croix, vagues, carré, étoile. Inventées en 1920, elles ont été utilisées lors des premières recherches quantitatives effectuées dans le domaine de la parapsychologie, en particulier par Joseph Banks Rhine, qui en serait l’inventeur ; il les a nommées ainsi en l’honneur de son collègue Karl Zener qui avait eu l’idée des cinq motifs retenu.

Ainsi dans  la série Le Prisoner, dans  l’épisode Schizoïd Man, Le prisonnier aide une jeune fille, le numéro 24, à répéter son numéro de télépathie et s’avère très douée. Dans cette épisode ce jeu de carte est élément important pour le dénouement de l’intrique.

Dans un esprit ludique, j’ai donc créé une réplique exacte du jeu de carte utilisé dans la série. Reproduite d’après images tirées de l’épisode, je me suis seulement permis une license créative pour la boîte à la manière de l’esthétique de la série car elle n’est pas montrée.

 

[highlighted_p boxed= »true » center= »true »]Le jeu est vendu au coût de 20$ CA + envoi. (International) Bientôt sur Etsy. [/highlighted_p]

 

The Prisoner Village Map

The Prisoner = The Village Map

 Number 6 : I’d like a map of this area.
Shop keeper : A map ? Color or black and white ?
Number 6 : …Just a map.

As a huge Prisoner fan, I already recreated for fun a few of the props used in the show and this map is a special project. I did a first version back then but with the show now on Blue Ray, I decided to have a second shot at it.

I’m now presenting the Version 2. Retraced from hi-res screenshots, much more details were now visible in terms of colour precision, watercolour brush stokes, pencil lines, Letraset lettering and little mistakes. Now, don’t forget that this map have 30 seconds max of screen time in close-ups shots and honestly, it looks that it had been done quickly. With this in mind, I redid it in Illustrator and Photoshop, to have more control on the graphic elements and to give it something more to look at. I’m very satisfy with the end result and I got good feedbacks on forums.

I see this product as a small edition collector item :

  1. Presented in a hardcover booklet with gold mat lettering and logo on beautiful textured paper.
  2. The map inside is printed on high resolution megajet 132gr paper.
  3. Let us tell you that as huge Prisoner fans, we indulged ourselves by making the map dead accurate.
  4. Measurements: Cover: 5 X 10 X 3/4 inches. Map: 19 X 32 inches.
  5. Available on demand in custom print sizes whithout cover.

 

Pricing:

– Full colour version with cover (limited) : 80 $ CA. + shipping.
– Simplified black and white with cover version : 40 $ CA. + shipping.
– Custom Print : Contact us for details.

Banyan Lamp

That project was initially commissioned by a dear friend of mine for a special family occasion.I probably when beyond my mandate as usual. Technically, it involved clay modelling, resin casting, metallic patines, Glass kiln work. Anyway, the end result was quite stunning judging by the final verdict: « Mind blowing ! they said ». Well thanks you.
