French pop idol : Christophe Willem [06.01.07]

Okies, Pop idol isn't really an indie thing. Most of the time, it's rather crap but you can find amazing singers in this tv program. i've decided to share some vids of the french winner in 2006 because this guy is really talented and brings something new to over-heard songs. I've chosen english/american songs only so you already know those songs. Don't hesitate to comment about it, I'd love to hear your opinion about Christophe. Sometimes, the sentences are wrong or there is a bad accent but it doesn't matter imo.

Jay Ryans Posters [04.20.07]

Jay Ryan is a Chicago based artist who has been making screen-print posters for indie bands like The Doves, Andrew Bird, Kings of the Crypts, Wolf Parade. This is the just a short list of the artist he has done posters for. I was lucky enough to get to meet him in person and talk with him about his art and how he got started.

He told me how he started out by just doing simple posters for his band and for friend’s bands. When he went to art school he majored in illustration. He has made his mark by word of mouth and he later started his own printmaking company called The Bird Machine. I told him that I was an artist and was trying to get into making posters art for bands and if he had any suggestions. He told me that the best way was to just start talking with people I knew who were in bands and just contacting bands I liked and asking if I could do a poster for them. I’ve had some luck in this but need to take it more serious. I thanked him and he wished me good luck.

His work is very simple but complex at the same time. He doesn’t try to use fancy or flashy images to catch your eye instead he uses one or two images that are subtle but this is what makes you look at them since they have a life to them and vibrancy unlike the majority of ads which are all about being flashy, loud, and colorful. Jay’s work instead is a breath of fresh air, he doesn’t catch your eye because the poster is flashy but because it is simple and to the point. He uses animals and simplified people in his work. The reason for animals is that it lends an ambiguous and universal look to his work. It is much easier to see your self in a mouse reading a book then a guy with a Mohawk reading a book or playing drums. He is one of my role models in the art world today because of his simply but engaging art.

His work can be found here http://www.thebirdmachine.com/gallery_jay.html

A new beginning [03.23.07]

Hey dear members,

I actually thought about what I could do with joli_monde. Because I wanted and I still want it to be an unique place and a cool one too. Sooo..after that a good friend of mine told me that I should deffo create a blog about fashion and write about it as I have a major obsession for fashion.
The new version of joli_monde includes a new layout (hehe it's a new start), graphics related to fashion and arts but also some articles about fashion will come soonie. I don't wanna act like I'm a fashion guru, so it will be more about what I like in fashion, pieces that I'd love to get or my opinion about fashion. Of course, I expect a lot of comments from you, and don't hesitate to speak about the community to your friends ! :)
