Le Philistin is a french-canadian litzine that is made and published in quebec city. in each issue they have a segment called '12 lists of 5 items' in which someone writes any 12 lists of any 5 items they want. olivier asked me to write it for the latest issue, and i did.

here is the blog post announcing the new issue, it's in french
, if you look hard enough, you can see my name

olivier makes very nice textile stuff from recycled materials (a lot of old ship sails), and lots of other stuff which you can see on his blog here.

he is also an illustrator, i really like his illustrations. he drew two illustrations for TOUGH!
and does graphic story telling that is very interesting and good and that i really like a lot ++

i stayed with olivier for 3 or 4 days in quebec city a long time ago. we took a really long walk one day and another day made a really good bean salad that i still think about sometimes.
if your brother or sister, daughter or son is in the 4th grade and needs to pass art class, i will provide drawings of your choice for a small fee.
