Bye...

Well, this is it; my time in London is coming to an end.

I’ve been here for 6 years, 6 great years, and my wife and I are now moving to sunny California next week, to L.A.

I’m off to some new adventures, new job, new people to meet, new places to discover, I feel like a Vasco De Gama, a new world!

I’m excited, and also sad to leave. I had a fantastic time here in London, it felt like home. I’ve met fantastic people, I’ve learnt a lot from all the fabulous Artists I’ve met and worked with, thanks for your support and inspiration, I’ll miss you a lot guys! I’ve made great friends, and best of all, I got married on the way!

So, I’ll be off the blog for a month I guess, while I settle down in L.A and get Internet again.

In the mean time, I wish you all the very best!

Aurevoir et a bientot!

Stef.

- Thanks anonymous, JL?

- Thanks Max, it's an hommage to Fantomas, a movie I used to love when I was a kid with Jean Marais and Louis de Funes, at the end of the movie, Fantomas was always flying away in his DS and wrote "FIN" the end in the sky with the smoke.

- Tack Mattias, how's everything in Stockholm?

- Thanks Rebel Alliance.

- Thanks Andrei!

J'ai dans l'idée qu'il va t'arriver de très belle chose là bas. Bonne chance cher compatriote ! La visite de ton blog est un enchantement, sacré bon coup de patte. Très inspirant et un vrai plaisir visuel chaque fois renouvellé.

Chris Battle said...

At what studio will the space-car be landing...?

M@ said...

Tout le Monde!

Au revoir Stephane Kardos le trois. It's been a pleasure working with you. This illustration is a dandy!

Oscar and I will be visiting soon, although I'm not as keen as Oscar is to do all the tourist attractions. Make sure you get out into the desert, there's a lot of weird things happening out there- I'd love to go to one of those "burning man" festivals.

Don't forget to put plenty of sun lotion on your Blog.

Marguerite said...

Ouip pour le boulot, une expo à LA donc peut être aussi si ça te dit de voir l'expo, collective (60 artistes !). Dès que j'en sais plus j'envoie un petit mail...Merci !

Stef said...

- Thanks Doodlers, I'm up for a Hockey Match!

- At Disney Consumer Product Chris, in Glendale.

- Aaaah merci mon Ami, I miss you already, you're a top guy and Artist.
My blog will be as orange as Matt Jones.
Shall I book tickets for Disneyland in advance for Oscar?

- Ah oui j'aimerais beaucoup voir cette expo!

Alina Chau said...

Welcome to LA!! Have a safe and wonderful journey!

Stef said...

alexis said...

salut l'artiste!
tchao la fausse patte du rotring,
tes esquisses pleine de vista!
tu pars comme un prince,
comme un mustang de feux,
cabré et digne aux reflets de chrome.
je me revois encore a contempler tout ses fameux croquetons que tu nous offrait.
tu avais besoins de plus de place,notre vieux continent t'etouffais un peu trop!
salut vieille pomme,
(je t'enverrais des stadler 3h et du drawing gomme)

Smook said...

When the hockey match is set up, I'll play net, I don't know how to skate!

Best of luck out on the coast, Stef! All the best to you and your wife!

Nice art-work, Mssr (unlike say a certain tasteless, mafia gal-artiste (and her hench-bots) who would unlikely pass the Duckie or Turtle dwaw-weeng contest....)
