I have finally been able to work on the design of my website.
People will probably scream when looking at the code but why would I spend 10 hours pulling my hair troubleshooting some nasty CSS when I can just do the same job in an hour using HTML?! [...] Read more

As suggested by Bobby Chiu, I just did a quick painting exercise in the style of one of my favorite artist Nate Wragg. Well it is pretty much a copy of one of his paintings.

My buddy Sebastien Lasserre has a blog! I still can’t believe it! ;-)
You can expect to see plenty of his work and surely his Pinpin comic strip!
