Hello, My Name is:

...Olivier Ozoux

I just joined the group, and I was asked to introduce myself, so there it is. My usual introduction/bio goes something like this:
Working in the Film Visual Effects, Animation and Game industries since 1989, I'm left handed and currently live and work in Los Angeles with my wife and our two robot dogs. I'm also the Director of Technology at Meemle, a company specializing in mobile applications for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry.

When I'm not working, I carry around a black sketchbook with rounded corners, an elastic closure and a handy inner pocket. You can see some of my work on Flickr.

Welcome Olivier! So glad to have you join us. Feel free to poke around the old posts to see what we've been up to.

I've put you in between myself and Dana, so you'll be receiving books from her and sending books to me. (For the most part anyways. There will probably be some times where we have to switch up the order).

Welcome Olivier! Tim show me your art work. It's very nice to have a so talented artist here with us.
I am happy to have your art in my book and It will be a great pleasure to work in your book too.
I'm the Brazilian guy in the group and the normal rotation order of the group I'm just after Tim :-))

Awesome, I'll be gathering photos and getting my book ready over the weekend. Silly question, are we using the large or small japanese sketchbooks?

Ramires said...

Olivier, we are using the small Japanese fold.

Welcome Oliver! I've seen some of your drawings at flickr and I love your style. It will be very refreshing to have you with us :)

Dana said...

Hi, Had anybody add olivier email to the emails and comment settings? I think his email is no there, but I not sure since I dont know it. He might be not getting notice when people post something.

I did a little email back-n-forth with Olivier today and he's decided to bow out. :( Here's what he had to say:

“I have to admit that I'm finding the whole Moly/Portrait concept a lot more difficult than I initially thought.

Just finding pictures of myself is proving to be a challenge, since I tend to be behind the lens much more often than before it, and I have to admit that drawing a lot of self portraits, then receiving a sketchbook filled with portraits of my face a lot less interesting than what I had first imagined.

I think I'm going to have to bow out of this one, but I'll be happy to join another non-portrait moleskine exchange group instead.


So, that's kind of a bummer, but I've been talking to one other artist who might join us. Her work is amazing, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Hopefully there will be an announcement soon.
