Un peu de rouge, pourtant.

Thank you Asher for the kind words :)

The poster has been printed on a self adhesive canvas with anti UV and waterproof inks
The exterior walls of the hotel are completely covered with Corian® material.
Very smart, Nicolas!

Of course!

What is the canvas make and code and how long could it last in bright sun? Which print inks?

I would love to make your letters for the hotel in stainless steel! I would bring it in my suitcase for you, LOL! Your vision is wonderful for the hotel as well as the exhibition!

Opening soirée is next Thursday and we have already 150 person who registered… as we know that most of people do register during the las preceeding 2 days, I do think that we'll break our record (200 +)
We'll have Japanese tea,, Saké and Bordeaux red wine… Sushis as if they were raining…
I hope people will have time to look at the photos!

Wishing to exhibit in Australia one day!

How long is the exhibition?

Would they like a sign in steel in that design when the exhibition closes. It’s so classy and fabulous with the Japanese font.

Is that a named special font or did you invent it from scratch?

Nicolas,

Eyes closed and open in structures reminiscent of Japanese country homes with wooden slats as window shades.

No curves here of disciplined bonzaii, as the architecture is all rectilinear, but your design reminds of imagined tranquil cabins near Mount Fuji!

What a great presentation. You are getting even amazingly better.

But we need to hear the detailed story of the artistic development of the special character of your woman with the most red lips!

The exhibition lasts till January 6, 2020.
When the exhibition will close, they will prepare for a new one… (not by us though ; )
Kanji! How could i invent a Japanese font? !
I just got the right sentence from a Japanese haïku specialist (who understands French)

If you can build a boat, Captain it across the oceans, find a wife called Marine and have a son for stories called Romain, you can do anything!

On Thursday October 17, was the opening party.

180 guests (counted!) attended in the cultural space of the Seeko'o **** in the presence of Mr. Bruno Lacoste Honorary Consul of Japan in Bordeaux ...
All were able to enjoy a tea offered by La Maison Jugetsudo, a Sake offered by La Maison du Japon, as well as sushis and makis served by SU and SHI with the red or white wines of Dourthe ...

Une soirée ... Très japonophile!

What a joy! Such a great group work. How long does the exhibition stay?

The hotel manager seems “Pleased as Punch”!

Romain, (so proud as a Peacock), and you, (such a charming French gentleman with an Estate),

.....are like boys with a brand new train set spread out over three rooms!

..... and the model the “Youth of the Republique”!

Nicolas,

This was a very well attended event. Did the Hotel provide the mailing list, or you have built it up over the years?

She was quite happy with the success :)

It is absolutely not Romain's normal behavior… He was just playing with the photog…

She has been our muse for a few hours, she has never been modelling before but understood immediately our wills and needs, she even added her own sensitivity…

We used both mailing lists, hotel's and ours (built from 6 years exhibitions in Bordeaux). Attendees were 50/50 from each list…

Not bad at all, not enough though, but their will be 3 more soirées… :)
