30 Days of Teita

FR: 30 Days of Teita est mon premier challenge creatif en 2017. Il a pour sujet ma grand-mère, un personnage haut en couleur qui ne se censurait jamais et avait l’habitude de sortir des phrases mémorables. Ce challenge créatif fut partagé “live” du 4 Janvier au 2 Février 2017 sur Instagram, Facebook et Twitter sous le hashtag: #30daysofteita.

ENG: 30 Days of Teita is my first creative challenge of 2017. It is dedicated to my grandmother, who was an unforgettable character with a sharp tongue, loads of wit and plenty of anecdotes in her pocket. This is a way for me to go through notes and memories I’ve collected and promised myself I would revisit without making the time for it. The creative challenge is my Trojan Horse to take my first baby step. If you’d like to find the drawings individually and share them, here they are on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (a bit harder to find).
