Over the past three week-ends I did something I haven't done for a very long time.

I wrote a book.

It's not a very long book, and it's not a novel. It's not even fiction. One chapter at the beginning needs to be written yet. I still have to add the illustrations.

Right now the hand-written (very) r... Read more of this blog post »

The theatrical poster is great…


I try to go into movies knowing as little as I can about them.
