The interview

A few months ago, my good friend Anthony Vu made a little movie of me doing a sketch of the day, as well as an interview.
Here is the link to the video with the interview, and the final sketch of the day here

Anthony is one of the founders of Alumiq Productions, in Southern California, a young, passionate video production company focused on capturing those little moments that make life all worth it.
You can see why we are friends.

A great interview, and so good to actually put a face to the name. I've said it before, and I'll probably say it again, your art is like nothing I've seen before. It is simply beautiful. All of it.

Pascal- I really enjoyed your vid- interview- what a terrific imagination you have been given! I totally agree with you, that the best kind of art (most effective) is art that makes us feel something. I was moved by many of your wonderful illustrations - God has given you a wonderful gift and you have worked hard to develop it. Thanks for sharing it!

Simply fabulous! I think out of all the art blogs and artists whose work I follow online yours appeals to me the most emotionally. I have no idea how I came across your blog all that time ago but I'm truly thankful I did. I loved watching the video and listening to you talk about telling stories through your pictures. Although I'm trying myself lately to take more of a storytelling approach with my art i find i always end up becoming too worried about how the picture looks and end up ruining the storytelling qualties with all my unnecessarie worrying. What I'm trying to say is that watching this short film and listening to what you had to say I think has gotten through to some part of me that needs to remember tonrelaxnwhen illustrating and just focus on what I'm trying to say. Any time I need gombe reminded of that, I'm going to remember this video! Thank you for the great advice, once again!

Since you like stories, I'll tell you one.

I'm still crying because of your interview, and i really mean it. You touched me to heart with this video. Your ability of telling stories, simple everyday things we have the privilege of living, but we keep ignoring, day after day, is simply incredible. I can count in the fingers of only one hand the times I got so touched by someone's art like I was by yours. I have to confess that it's not the first time I see your work, Pascal, but I never had the eyes to see it the way it deserves to be seen. I never had the sensibility to see all the life it breathes. You and your work really made a change in me with this interview. I'm an artist trying to find my place in this big world, but maybe I was too focused in learning the technique of the thing itself, that I didn't see how much I love to tell stories, no matter the style or the technique I have. Thanks for making me see it.
Sorry for the long words, but I had to let you know it. I wish we can talk a bit about art someday.

merci pour cette incursion dans la "cuisine" de Pascal/superpower/Campion. Heureusement, il reste le mystère de ton talent qui nourri toutes ces images que tu imagine, et le mystère c'est bien, ça fait rêver pour l'avenir !

Dominique "trop de loin de San Diego" pour passer te féliciter.
