quel est votre plus formidable aphrodisiaque ?

21 July 2009

A while ago I entered one my of favorite artist’s, La Flore et La Faune“Summer Love” Contest. (Perhaps you remember LF&LF from a post in which she so kindly dedicated an illustration to me that is now framed in my room?) The rules were quite simple; answer the question “what is your loveliest aphrodisiac?” via a word, text, a drawing, a picture, etc. It was open to interpretation – my favorite type of contest!

Anyhoo, my dears. I somehow was inspired, sketched up a rather rudimentary illustration, and emailed it straight away to the Parisian. Little did I know that I would actually be selected as one in three winners! My entry:


Okay, so it’s not that great. But I’m a bit proud of myself, regardless. 

But it is my personal blog, and I am fully entitled to bragging rights and such, non? More art by moi, click here, here, & here, my loves!

    You are supremely talented; this should be framed and hung upon a wall – the one in my bedroom would do nicely. 🙂
