"It tooks me almost one year to find the right painting, which I wanted to use for my first Lithograph. Finally I chose this painting on paper because it's closest in size and material. I preferred not to take a large painting and scale it down to the size of the Lithography. For me the lines loose a lot of strength and energy when they are put out of proportion. 
I very much enjoy working on paper for the sketchy feeling. Even though the main characteristic of it doesn't let me do any corrections, but it forces me to accept lines, which doesn't always make me happy at first sight. Regardless of it I pursue paper without any deeper preparation and pretty much go on it kamikaze style, that often leads to new results. 

Working with Print Them All and Idem was a great experience. The old printing factory in Paris is a piece of art itself. I feel very comfortable there nonetheless because they're only printing lithographs of artists and no adds or business related stuff. On my first day, Alëxone Dizac was painting on a stone for his lithograph, in the machine was a litho by Vhils, another one by Bezt just got stacked up and C215's got numbered after he had just signed them. I fall immediately in love with these place and the old honorable printing locomotives. Watching them work made me feel good and it was honestly the first time that I really understood the craft and the difference between a lithograph and a silkscreen print."
