Winter Sinking Cupcake Girl: Broken Aeroplanes.


I usually listen to music very carefully and Winter Sinking Cupcake Girl is the result of my active attention. Aware that my work is deeply inspired by rock bands and songs I deeply love, my translation remains unconscious. Sometimes I realize often only months later that a specific song lead me to create a specific world. What a mysterious adventure :)

Broken Aeroplanes by Richard Butler (from his 2006 solo album): I don't know why exactly but this beautiful song inspired me to concoct a depressing – but almost happy – mood, I can call desperate indifference. (Broken Aeroplanes on youtube) Then I hand drew this sad and smart cupcake girl.


On the photographed drawing, coloration was done with Photoshop.



I took the ice rink background from another one of my images I made for a cartoon on an absolutely beautiful (beautifully absolute!) cover of Joy to the World by Frank Fuller.


Enjoy the candy bittersweet color palette of Winter Sinking Cupcake Girl. I love pop music.

Vicky Petit-Boni sleeps in a mini matchbox.


Hooray! Vicky Petit-Boni is the fifth Petit-Boni listed in my Etsy shop. I like the colors I used to create this tiny ninja bunny girl: camel beige, periwinkle purple, navy blue, pink. The matchbox (where she sleeps) is painted in blue, which is also a pretty color in that combination.

Vicky has two sisters.

Yeti in a tree.

The scientific community generally regards the Yeti as a legend, given the lack of conclusive evidence, yet it remains one of the most famous creatures of cryptozoology. The Yeti may be considered a sort of parallel to the Bigfoot of North America. (Wikipedia)

Yeti lives in snowy mountains.


The Abominable Snowman is a 1957 British horror film, directed by Val Guest and starring Forrest Tucker and Peter Cushing.

After long and deep reflection, I concluded that yetis also have the ability to live in a tree.


At least MY yetis, who became ornaments, since I attached a thin loop on their head for hanging.


This cute mini ninja yeti monster ornament plush was stuffed and hand stitched by me. Click HERE to see him hanging around in my Etsy shoppe. Thank you :)

Lou Petit-Boni sleeps in a mini matchbox.

Yeah! Lou Petit-Boni is the fourth Petit-Boni listed in my Etsy shop. I love his face, he looks pretty smart with his misty eyes. Lou is a tiny ninja bunny sleeping in a mini matchbox, measuring 2 x 1.5 inch (5 x 4 cm). The box is painted in orange acrylic, roughly sandpapered and decorated with original drawings.

Good morning, spring green ninja bunny.


Lou and Betty Petit-Boni like to play with fire.
