There is nothing more emblematic of spring for me then fresh flowers and pretty raincoats! 

This month I asked my friend Ariane to pick a couple of coveted and loved items. So, here is what miss April picked:  

Boots similar to those
A leather glasses case made by her boyfriend
....and also made the wish for a dog to bring home. 

I chose to add this sweater
If there were 48hrs in a day, I would totally knit that for her. 

ps: I am having a hard time uploading my image without blogger ri-sizing it. For the full size desktop (2500x1400px) please download it from the FB page here. It seems to be re-sized down there as well. I'll try to figure it out before the next month. Sorry about this!

A cameo from my handsome husband for the month of March. A little way of honoring our anniversary coming up. My sweet lumbersexual man ready for an outing at la cabane à sucre, pocket knife, iphone, and cozy knits. 

Here are some of his favorites: 

Merino wool Watch cap from Mercantile
(because he's jealous of the one I knit for our daughter)
An old Banana Republic shirt I bought him 
Redwing Heritage boots (he should buy, if you ask me)

Oscars' Fashion 2015

 I watched the Oscars yesterday (duh, like the rest of the planet. And managed until around 10h30pm since that was already pushing drastically my bedtime.. I know..) And, wanted to share my favorite looks. I am not very up to date with the fashion world right now. So maybe those are just nice classic looks... 

 I find Emma Stone always stunning (and talented and hilarious) her choices are always interesting. I love this sort of gold? Chartreuse? Sparkle lemon-yellow?? I find it really chic. That photo does not do it justice. 

 Other then that Jennifer Lopez's gown was just sooooooo beautiful. I actually think it would look even better as a wedding gown then for an award ceremony...that color! (I wish I could get married again to wear that gown. That much) The details are so delicate and pretty in a not tacky-swarowsky kind of way. I'm not a fan of the crazy cleavage boob-pancakes look, but I'm aware that this is J-Lo and therefor it is probably inevitable. 

 I don't know if I love Jared Leto's look... All I can say is that it triggered some interest, emotions, compared to the see of boring black tuxedos. (There was a couple of dark-color sort of shiny jackets.. burgundy (Neil Patrick Harris' second look?), forest green.. but MEH it didn't do it for me)  I love that he is doing something different. That lilac color is so intriguing. I do love the Jesus-hairstyle, though, that I am positive about.

2015! Already!!! 

I'll be posting free desktop calendars every month again. Hopefully on time, each month.

 For January, I always love my dose of cozy knits, introspection, calm and hot beverages. I'll try and incorporate some local (or not) favorites into these monthly drawings. I'm also taking this chance to just draw pretty girls and women (and maybe a man or two?) well dressed and stylish. I have mostly children work line up this year so it will do for a nice change. So here it is! I hope you enjoy it :)

Even though our kitchen reno has been done for over a year now.. I still can't bring myself to taking actual photos of it. Like, real nice after photos. I realized that I have taken a lot of little snippets here and there. I seem to be obsessed with photographing my beverages -- something my husband might understand, I stole a couple of those instagrams from him. Maybe I'll gather the courage sometime?

Noémiah Fall-Winter 14'

Photo: Instagram Noémiah (@missnoemiah)

 Isn't it funny that the last post I wrote before taking some time off with my baby was about some work for Noémiah... and now first one is all about her as well! I have started working again since earlier this fall, but there is not much I can show yet. This gorgeous collaboration took place in late spring and summer, and her De Glace collection is now out, so I can brag. 

 I designed some patterns for her, but she ended up using this single motif instead. It embellishes some pieces, embroidered in shiny gold thread.. and Also a cashemere scarf. What more could I ask for? This collection feels much more mature, Noemiah has found herself... and it's really a pleasure to be working with her after all these years!

Oh ALLO!! 

 Sorry for the long winter pause, but I have been very busy with you know... giving birth and taking care of a new born. ;) 

 I wanted to share the last image I did for Studio Espace Mukti before leaving for mat-break. It was meant for their winter season. Which is over by now... right, winter is over soon....please? Is it just me or did this one seemed to drag and drag, almost May and the temps are finally trying to come up a bit. I love Espace Mukti's yoga classes, the pre-natal yoga really helped me feel mobile in the second half of my pregnancy. Until I was put on modified-best-rest but that has nothing to do with the yoga. I actually missed it a lot.  I also took a baby massage class this spring. It was really magical and I'm so glad I have those knowledge now, I highly recommend it. :) 

 Talking about babies... here are some pics of my tiny lady. Baby Estelle Ursa was born on February 11th. She was 7.8lbs and 19" She has been amazing since, the loveliest most easygoing baby I could imagine. Don't get me wrong, taking care of an infant is the hardest thing I've done, ever. But she is usually in a great mood and that helps a lot.

Some last minute work for Noémiah

 I did those for my friend Noémie last week, designer behind the lovely brand Noémiah. I was not supposed to take more work.. but I remembered I had told her I'd do it a looong time ago and had forgotten. Woopsies. It's always fun to try and find ways to match the soft look of her brand with  my illustrations. I really like how these turned out. Here are some of my favorite pieces from her last collection... Can't wait to see what she'll have for spring very soon!!

M'as tu vu?

 This is nothing super duper new but I realized I had not shared it here yet. I did the cover illustration for Simon Boulerice's teen novel M'as tu vu? (Les Malins) That's the first of the serie and it is called Hors-Champ. I'm currently working on the sequel, so I thought it was high time I shared this one!! It came out in september, and it is a great tween novel. I actually am enjoying reading those a lot!! Reality tv, high school drama, bullies.. friendships and relation ships shenanigans... All you need, really. :) 

 The graphic design of their books is always really nice. This one is right up my alley. I had never seen rounded corners on paper-backs.. are those a new thing? And the title is actually textured....!
