Nice sharing again at Clermont-Ferrand, meeting people, getting some visits... 
Beginning at my place. I was showing my work about majestic rivers, sush as the Seville Guadalquivir's riverside unfolded on a large leporello sketchbook.
And I even portraited my neighbours !

And this actually was before the festival begins ! At the train station, which we were asked to sketch with Sebastian Loerscher and Vincent Desplanche...

On saturday evening there's a dinner for the festival artists. We draw ourselves with Marina Girardi. And as a professionnal terrorist, she throws colourful bombs on my sketchbook ! We end portraiting Gildas Chasseboeuf with 4 hands. It's been pictured by Véronique Massenot, well we also drew her with Bruno Pilorget and Marc Abel : 3 artists who got prizes for their fantastic book Salaam Palestine !

Urban sketchers were there too, olé ! About 50 people from the festival to the cathedral roof, just sketching, sketching, and sketching again...


Here we are, it's gone so quickly ! But Lapin's fond of sketching old cars, so we give him company sketching an old Dauphine by night ! (with TazabCat Gout, Fab Denoël, Gérard Michel, Swasky, Santi, Miguel Herranz, Luis Ruiz, and of course Lapin !)

Well, 2 am at Clermont Ferrand, not that cold !

We were grateful to Aldebaran, he had cooked a tasty mique ! I discovered a French speciality !

And the day after was rainy. So guess what, we went to draw again...

It's been awesome, special thanks to IFAV for this great festival and to Tazab for the Urban sketchers tour organisation !
