I just had my first gallery show in Paris. It went very well! A lot of people jammed into the small space to see my installation. There were a lot of people there who were familiar with my Djax work (it helped that my art was part of a Miss Djax cover story in CODA magazine this month), and were surprised to see all my big, splashy color gallery pieces. After years of B&W art for Djax, the color just knocked their eyes out.

The individual painted pages from the upcoming VECTRA comic were a hit! I could have sold all of them, but they're not for sale until the book comes out early next year. We also sold a LOT of the "Sexy Adventures of Orietta St. Cloud" comic/CDs, to my surprise.

Later that night, I played The Batofar. Interesting space (on a boat!), good sound, nice crowd! Dancing, shouting, partying. Saw a lot of familiar faces (Arno, Virginie, Julia, Technotourist Marie with her sexy new haircut) both at the opening and at the party. It's always nice to see friends.

Thanks to my art dealer Adeline Jeudy for organizing the gallery show and making it happen. Thanks also to the beautiful people of Paris for appreciating my work. It was nice to meet all of you!
