Don’t say I didn’t warn you

I laughed when I saw that la flore et la faune had the Anthology listed under “Ceux qui devraient dessiner,” which (according to Google Translate) means “Those who should draw.” If there’s one thing I should not do — it’s draw. Je suis terrible.


But La Flore didn’t believe me. In fact, La Flore challenged me to draw an outfit. Et voila. It took me three tries to produce the one on the right. And I didn’t even bother to include arms. Or shins.

hot-hot-heatIt looked much better in real life. With all my chains and my concert t-shirt (I’m one of the people who buys those. Remember the New Kids?).

f-troupe-shoesAnd my F-Troupe shoes. Which I love because they’re just a little boyish.

I suppose, then, it’d be fair to list me under “Ceux qui devraient wear those more often.”

    Love it! didn’t know you had a talent for the pen in more than one way. Maybe you can auction this one off too =D

    I was seriously going to bid on your painting if you had not. But I realized you really wanted it (along with Noshwell) so I did not.

    Those shoes are ridiculously cool.

    Ok, the drawing isn’t that bad! I used to sketch as a kid, but I haven’t done it in ages and I would probably make a mess of anything I attempted to illustrate. I collect concert tees as well, but mainly the more fitted versions. All the bigger tees I have, I ended up wearing as nightgowns, because they were just too huge (I think they were men’s versions anyway).

    P.S. Love the jacket in your last post!

    Quelle — Hot Hot Heat is the best, aren’t they? They were amazing when they opened for the even more amazing Bloc Party.

    Liv — they’re from Umeboshi, mon amie.

    La Flore — oh no, now I’ve got to go to Google Translate to understand your comment (even though I took French up until grade 12 and spent a month at the Sorbonne in Paris)

    Sofia — there is absolutely nothing cool about me when I wake up. I can barely keep my eyes open right now, in fact.

    Gerri — F-troupe actually makes quite a few cute soles.

    Hauteworld — Ha! I tend to wear my tourist t-shirts as night gowns

    Naben — I’m so happy you still have that photo of you and me and the lead singer of Hot Hot Heat. That was such a fun party.

    Nadia — La Flore’s are beautiful illustrations, aren’t they?

    Etrapar — you’re sweet.

    XS — be careful what you wish for.

    Miriam — really? You sound like my mama.

    Bri — Me too!

    @miriam. Be careful > “tu n’es pas terrible” means “you’re quite terrible”… ;-)
    And fashion sketches are often very rough. Have you ever seen Karl’s ones ?

    They probably meant “design” instead of “draw” – I think those words mean the same thing in French.

    They want you to design clothes!

    Fair enough, since you have a great sense of style.

    […] Never cease to inspire me. Take Danny Roberts, for example. The 23 year old illustrator from California makes me wish and hope and pray I could actually draw. […]
