Kids coloring da-eYe!
This year’s World Kids Coloring Day was about da-eYe. Surprisingly (or maybe not…), my character from the Eighties drew a lot of attention. Last year, kids made me draw the #World of Sama characters they wanted to color like a Sama Hané with a crown, a Sama ‘classic’, the Sama Twins and many others. But #da-eYe said on his website 2011 was ... More
Kids coloring the World of Sama
Last week was World Kids Coloring Day. The annual event is supported by Save the Children and sponsored by Staedtler, and it is aimed to support Save the Children’s Rewrite the Future campaign. I think this is a great initiative and like many commented on the post published on the Sama Gazette on this special day, I wish this event had more media ... More

Working on the new show and jewelry collection
September has been a very busy month for two main reasons: first because I am working on my next show and it is, as always, a lot of work. I will unveil several new works from 2 new series soon. The series are not complete yet so it will be very exclusive to the show since any of them will be publicly revealed before 2010. Second reason I have been very ... More
The Chibi entered the Sama Zone yesterday in Paris
A quick post to thank everyone who came to see my exhibition on Friday. It is always exciting to show my work and share it with open minded and curious people. As some of you have noticed, I am not very comfortable with camera and interviews about myself, but I was keen to answer to all the questions you had about the World of Sama and my work. And some of ... More
World Of Sama Exhibition + Website redesign
I’ve been quite busy lately working on my next exhibition and the redesign of the World of Sama Website. I already mentioned this exhibition in one of my post and I’ve got some news about it. It will take place ‘this winter’ in Paris. Like my first Sama Exhibition (in an abandoned house in countryside), this one will be private and ... More
