30 ans! Happy Birthday to meeee & giveaway

By Anne-Julie

Eng/ Hello folks! today is a special day for me (and for you, too! read below to understand why) I’m turning 30 today, and it feels strange and exciting at the same time! It’s like I’m entering a new world, and to illustrate my feeling right now I’m going to quote a great poet, Delmore Schwartz (thank you my dear Fran for this) “Time is the fire in which we burn

Ok so to celebrate my birthday, I’m going to offer YOU a present! :D

Just leave a comment in this post to enter the draw. Don’t forget to leave your name and correct email so that I can contact you in case you are the winner! You have until Monday, July 5th midnight to enter, and once closed I will draw a winner using the random number generator.  You can win a limited edition print, numbered and signed of “Sally” from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas. This is a new illustration created for the CRAZY 4 CULT show opening July 9th in Gallery 1988 Los Angeles. Good luck folks! and lots of kisses.

“Sally”

Fr/ Coucou à tous! Aujourd’hui est un jour spécial pour moi (et pour vous aussi, lisez plus bas) puisque je fête mes 30 ans! C’est à la fois étrange et excitant en même temps.. effrayant aussi. Pour citer un poète américain, Delmore Schwartz,  “Time is the fire in which we burn” (le temps est un brasier dans lequel nous nous consumons). J’aime beaucoup cette phrase et elle représente assez bien mon état d’esprit.

Ok donc pour fêter un petit peu l’événement, c’est moi qui vais vous offrir à VOUS un cadeau! :D

Pour jouer c’est simple: laissez moi un commentaire ici (et un seul), en indiquant bien votre nom et en laissant un email valide pour que je puisse vous contacter si êtes le/la gagnant(e). Vous avez jusqu’à Lundi 5 juillet minuit pour participer, après quoi j’utiliserai le random number generator pour tirer quelqu’un au sort. A gagner: Un print en édition limitée, numéroté et signé de “Sally”, fameux personnage de “L’Étrange Noël de Monsieur Jack” de Tim Burton. Cette illustration a été créé pour l’expo à venir CRAZY 4 CULT (expo sur les films cultes) qui commence ce 9 juillet à la galerie1988 de Los Angeles. Bonne chance, et bises à tous!

    Happy Birthday! I turned 30 myself in september and had the most horrible birthday imaginable so I really hope yours turned out better than mine. I’m not sure I’ve landed in my new age but it is kind of exciting.

    I really really like your pictures and would love to own one. I like that you write both in english and french too, you have a very nice blog.
