Happy Event

Today, the mystery giant egg Professor Meriwether J. Witherington Syms-Pott discovered in the ices of East Pole during the 1892 Polar Expedition, after being stored for two years in the warmth of the Imperial Botanical Garden green house, finally gave sign of imminent development of its condition. Surprise.

Thank you very much for your kind words,…

Power Truck

This one has a "Great Depression" feeling, no ? It can be the faded colours, but I guess it is mostly because that kind of trucks always makes me think of the 1939 John Ford's film "The Grapes of Wrath". Or Dorothea Lange's photographic work. Anyway, that is how ideas and feelings are linked in the mind of the Frenchie the most fond of American pop culture you will ever come across...

Again, thank you so much,…

A Better Life

For Larry, and maybe some others, who are kind enough to pay attention to "the little hints of an alternative universe" and, more broadly speaking, the details in my pictures, the line on the propaganda poster (lower left corner of the picture) "A Richer, Better Life Awaits You Here" is a real advertisement slogan from the 20's. As for the poster ...…

New geography and soft colours for this travel poster, as a change from the brutal iconography of my Third Reich-inspired latest picture !

Reich Zentralbank

"The main point is not to get the power, the main point is what you do with it".

Answering Tome's question, Corel offers this great tool, a brush that let you "trace several lines simultaneously", which helps a lot.

More importantly, I thank you all,…

Future Money

"Under federal law, counterfeiting is a class C felony, punishable by up to 12 years in prison and/or a fine of as much as $250,000. State laws also establish penalties for counterfeiting."

... so you, guys, do not print this bank note from the National Bank of the Future !

Colonial Empire

Here is the second part of this triptych of pre WWII-style posters. Hope you'll like it.

In 1931, is held in Paris the International Colonial Exhibition. Fourth of its kind, the 1931 fair is very much the symbol of French colonialism, at its absolute peak, then. With 103 millions of people on a territory of more than 12 millions square kilometers spread out over the five continents, France owns, then, the largest…

East Pole

This "East Pole" thing is a recurrent fantasy of mine, it seems : you may want to have a look at the "Polar Palace and "Ice Eternal" pictures in the Steampunk photos album...

Here is a travel poster that will hopefully give you fresh, new ideas for the next holidays !

Answering Tome's question about the graphic tools I use, I actually do not use Photoshop, but Corel, a rather old, outdated version of it, at that. The…
