By the Lake

Last week I spent a day by a lake just outside of town, called Mirabel. Here are some drawings of it, drawings of hot French bodies sweltering in the sun. miribel 1miribel 2miribel 3

Back from Scotland

Hello! I’ve just got back from my adventures in the UK. Lots of sketchbook drawings that I haven’t scanned in yet, but here are a couple to whet your appetite. My father has recently finished building a new house in the North East of Scotland, so I made some drawings of it:

A View in Ardeche

Here’s a quick little watercolour of the view from a friend’s house in Ardeche, where I spent the weekend. Idyllic or what?OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m going back to the UK this week, and spending a couple of weeks there. So while I might not post anything on the blog in that time, I’ll hopefully make hundreds of drawings and have a lot to show when I return!

Return to Strasbourg

Anyone who has been following this blog for a really long time may remember a detail of my life and education: some six years ago I did an Erasmus exchange to the École Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg. I had a wonderful time, but for various reasons I haven’t been back since – until last week, when I finally took a trip there for a few days. Here are some sketches:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHere are some people sitting outside a cafe. It may not come as a surprise to learn that drinking in cafes was my number one activity when I was a student there, and still is to this day.

Faux Amis

ALBON low res cover

I’ve just published a new short comic in an anthology here in Lyon called Bermuda! It’s super exciting to see in print at last (as I wrote it some time ago), and it’s the first time I’ve written in French.

You can read it on my main website here: http://www.jamesalbon.com/faux-amis, (there are English translations in the captions).

Enjoy!
