Fighting the Current

I randomly picked the winner of the Gobzine a while ago (see below), and just haven't found the time to post it. I've been doing my best to fight against the currents of time's ever flowing torrent and I've been standing my ground fairly well :) I have a few bits I'd like to post over the next month, and I'll have some time maybe next week to get started. But for now......



I typed all the names of the people who left a comment (excluding the Gobelins peeps, as they most probably already had a copy!!) into a Randomizer :D I would have come up with a more emphatic way of choosing a winner, but.... u.u



After said website had instantaneously popped up James Woods' name, I decided to have a quick flick through the 'Zine one more time..... only to have my mouth drop open in astonishment. On one of the pages was HIS NAME printed into part of the image. O.O



It seemed like some sort of magic trick - I half imagined that if someone else had won, it would have been their name printed there. But I guess we'll never know now :P

So congrats to James n.n I'll be in touch.

'Till the Next,
L

Je sais que j'ai dit qu’à partir de ce post j’écrirai en français alors... Je vais le faire... mais vite fait. Je ferai mieux la prochaine fois :P
En gros, ces dernieres semaines étaient dures par rapport a l'école et la quantité de travail. Je n'avais pas le temps de faire autre chose. Même le basket... Mais je crois que je vais avoir un peu de temps la semaine prochaine….. mais juste un peu ;)
Alors, j'ai choisi au hasard le gagnant du Gobzine !....et comme vous voyez, c'était fou comme résultat!
a tte

(je vais te répondre en français alors ;) )

Ah! Mais! J'ai ce gobzine (et dédicacé aux portes ouvertes en plus!) Je ne savais pas que c'était de toi cette illu'! Elle est vraiment fun et avec du caractère surtout!

Sinon...tes croquis sont géniaux! Ils sont très vivants :)

Bon courage pour la fin d l'année ;)

C'est vrai que c'était dur de mettre des posts sur le blog ces dernieres semaines, mais j'ai toujours le temps (pendant le p'tit dej!) de regarder les blogs des autres... surtout le tien ;)

@Frankie
Cheers dude! And again, sorry I only had one :S
Hope all is well!

@Chloé
Indeeeed! :D
A tte!!

@Ophélie
:D donc peut-être qu'on s'est croisé alors! (Mais peut-être pas - J'etais coincé dans un des salles de troisieme année en train de travailler sur le film)
Non, en fait c'est pas moi qui ai fait cette image - c'était juste pour dire que le nom du gagnant était déja imprimeé dans le gobzine sur une des pages!

James Woods said...

Wohoo thanks so much Laurent!:D
I'm dead chuffed about this, ha!
I have a load of small prints lying around so I'll have to send you something back!
Awesome sketch work as per. The third one down is really special.
Thanks again, I can't wait to look through the Zine and see your drawing!

Ophélie Cohen said...

Peut être oui, j'ai fait toutes les salles et j'ai vu beaucoup de gens travailler! C'était fort intéressant :)

Joël CORCIA said...

Laurent, je ne me rend pas encore compte que c'est terminé ! Je suis partagé entre joie et tristesse ! Content d'avoir travaillé avec toi en tout cas ! J'espère que cette année a été bénéfique pour toi aussi ! A lundi mec !

Je t'ai enfin laissé un com' je te devais bien ça n'est ce pas =) ?

Kristian said...

That profile at the top is wonderful. You're drawings always fill me with the desire to go out and draw. For that I thank you.

L ROSSI said...

@James
No worries :)
I sent a mail to the address on your C.V.
And that would be sooo coool to have a print of yours!!! (signed of course ;))
I think you'll be dissapointed with my contribution :D You have to understand we were very busy with the films n.n'

@Ophélie
:D cool. Le notre était la salle avec l'odeur! :P

@Joël
Mon cher Joël, c'était un grand plaisir d'avoir travaillé avec toi - tu m'appris beaucoup... par rapport d'art, le français et aussi, la vie!
Je suis soulagé, et pret pour le prochaine chapitre n.n
Et Merci pour le com'. Une seule larme est tombé :D

@Kristian
As much as I am surprised to hear that, I am soo happy as that means YOU will be doing more drawings to inspire meee!! :)

libra bear said...

It seems like your work is becoming looser and looser. I cant explain, there with every stroke comes this new found confidence Its exciting to see. Hope your not to worn out man, was good seeing you again

jLou said...

That second image is beautiful!! The values simplified works so well. I also love it when two pages are used at once :D

Aww James is sooo lucky! XD
Is there any way I can art trade to get a copy? ;)

L ROSSI said...

@Wes
:') Thanks bro!
I am fairly worn out. Today was my very last day as a Gobelins - and as much I am sooooo happy to have done it, I'm also very happy that it's over :DDD

@Jamie
Thanks so much! Sometimes you just have to do a double spread :D
I am so down for an art exchange!!!!
(Though I don't have another copy of the Gobzine, so maybe a sketchbook page will suffice? :S
I'll send you a mail n.n

jLou said...

Oh yes of course woohoo! That would be awesome! Whenever you're done with your projects of course XD
