"I love you too"

Here is a Flickr called "We love Rolito" where more than one hundred members are posting pictures of my babies.
Of course I'm really proud of the attention raised by my creations, but, more important, this is giving me the desire to continue creating new toys.
Thanks a lot! :)

Still Alive projects.01

I really enjoy comic books, I’ve read thousands of those…
It was one of my dreams to draw one, but except small incursions and other tries, I never really took the plunge.
Until one of my “Heroes”, a famous French comics artist and also “directeur de collection” of one of the biggest French comics editor called me :
"Hi Rolito, if you have a pen, some paper and a computer I would like you to create your own comics".
I let you imagine my mood after this phone call. :)
I thus restarted one of my old projects: U.U.U.
In complicity with Run, we drew a storyboard and a few pages.
Because one of my other projects is engrossing all my time, this one is going forward very slowly.
U.U.U belongs to these projects which are really important to me, but should not be “finished” before a long time.
Even if I continue to work on it (in a very erratic way) I still do not know whether in the end it will be a Comic book or Picture Book…
Wait & see:)

I love Toys.02

From my last trip to Tokyo, I brought back a vinyl figure produced by the famous Japanese company called Marmit (thanks Don!).
This beautiful & mysterious figure is based on one of the DOGU (pronounced dough-goo) clay idol from the Jomon Japanese period (10 000 BC - 400 B.C ).
There are many theories on what they were used for. A talisman for good health or safe childbirth, goddesses’ representation, toys for children, funerary offerings, or objects used in some unknown ritual.
As you can see on the illustration (second picture), some people think that this Dogu strange figurine represent some "strange visitor" with space suit :).
I love this figure, we are really far away from all the "designer toys" frenzy production and that's a good point :).
