The Bubble House, near Cannes, was built in 1989 and designed by Antti Lovag for the French fashion designer Pierre Cardin. The futuristic design feels like a homage to the Barbapapa's housebuilding skills! Possibly the most fun you could imagine in a house design.
I like this sketchbook due to the dark colours in the background and the technique used to do this. The background is completely filled using paint in layers. The dark browns and reds make a background for the writtten work - these colours are roughly joined with cool colours which make a detailed water and boat scene. I like the way the writing becomes part of he painting. . The overall effect is breathtaking.
