I started calligraphy classes last February and after an avalanche of mail sent to my friends and family, I want to spread my wings and diversify ! :) I'm just starting, so please don't expect masterpieces yet... i'll get there eventually.
I love sending mail (and receiving it too !) (Do you remember the time we were "Meh..." about mail but so exited when we received an email?... I do and i CAN NOT believe i'm actually old enough to remember //and talk like my grandMa...// )
I'm a graphic designer by trade but I currently work as a communication director.
Get to know me :
Music (all kinds really), i love HipHop as much as IndyFolk, I grew up with classical music and had my teenage ska/funk/punk-rock period... I volunteer at an electro-music festival as well as a salsa/Cumbia one... So.. yeah. Music ! (Mostly live. I'm going to a lot of concerts live. Because i like to experience it as much as listening to it)
Art (obviously...) What is there to say... It speaks to the soul (or not... at all for some pieces!)
Screenprinting and Letterpress printing. I'm part of a "collectif" (a group of artists & creators idk how it's called in english) in my city to promote screen printing. We organise actions and demonstrations in the street or in festivals. I definitely geek out on oldschool/manual/Diy printing processes.
Food... What else... I mean, I'm French, what do you expect ?
Ski & badminton are my sports...
Favorite book... way too hard to choose but i'll say my top 3 authors are Douglas Coupland, JoseMaria de sa Moreira, Neil Gaiman
Favorite tvshow : Orphan black (such an amazing actress!)
Also I'm green... I'm one of those eco-minded people. I recycle, don't own a car, use renewable when available, ride my bike everywhere and generally try to reduce my carbon footprint... Though I'm no eco-warrior... I love shoes and stuff... So I try to manage my values with my real life... As one does...
So... I love mail but I'm not really into swapping "stuff" : i try to reduce my consumerism, though i'm sorry to say i haven't mastered that philosophy in the shoes department.. I'm a shoes hoarder.. (special closet for my "irregular choice" ones .... and if you did not know this brand before.... "you're welcome!")
All that to say : flat mail only for me ! (and international packages are getting expensive !)
If that helps : I'm mid-30(ish) / Live in Lyon / Love coffee / HAAAATE cinnamon / and i'm the Queen of fun facts... I have tons of random/weird factoids stored in my brain. (Like "where does this comes from, what's the origin of this usage, what's that called, how do you make that, etc.... ) I'm cool like that :/)
