When I was a budding graphic design prodigy fresh out of art school, I could have only, for the least of a most part, dreamt of using French art supplies, or anything European. Now, those materials are an extremely large part of what I use. Go figure!
Today, I walk into my lab (what most would call a studio), and what do I see? French and German paints, French canvasses and papers and french-made giclee prints, German color sticks and inks and sprays, English papers and paint brushes, etc, etc, etc…
Shit, I’m in heaven!
Now all I need to do is go walk the marbled floors of the Louvre.
