FuglyMugz

It’s already been a month since I started the FuglyMugz project. I always wanted to update my Youtube channel on a regular basis but never really knew with what kind of content. Until now, it was random little doodles in fast forward but seemed to be well appreciated by the viewers. Just back from the International Licensing Expo in Last Vegas, I had a flash: Keep the same idea of quick doodles but always based on the simple concept of weird and funny head shots. I found a strange name, worked the concept a bit and started to produce one FuglyMugz a week.

This little project helps me to take a break from my usual work and I can update my Youtube channel at the same time. I don’t know exactly how long it will last, but i’m planning to do a set of 12. Let’s see how it will goes…

Cela fait maintenant un mois que j’ai commencé le projet des FuglyMugz. J’ai toujours voulu entretenir mon channel Youtube de façon plus régulière, mais sans savoir quoi y mettre vraiment. Jusqu’à présent, j’y avais posté une vingtaine de vidéos sans ligne directrice précise. C’est en revenant de l’International Licensing Expo de Las Vegas, en Juin dernier, que j’ai eu un flash: Réaliser de très courts vidéos basés sur le simple concept de têtes étranges, farfelues et déjonctées. J’ai trouvé un nom bizzaroïde, paufiné mon concept et hop, j’ai commencé à produire un FuglyMugz par semaine.

C’est étrange à dire, mais cela me permet de prendre une petite pause de mon boulot habituel sur des illustrations plus élaborées… et par le fait même, de mettre à jour mon profile YouTube tel que souhaité. Vive les FuglyMugz!!! (pour le temps que ça va durer). Pour l’instant j’ai l’idée d’en faire une douzaine. On verra comment ça va se passer…
