Un Día ANZAC australiano muy diferente - Estilo COVID 19

The sound of the Last Post rang out across Australia at dawn today despite the usual ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) services being cancelled. Instead, we were encouraged to remember this significant day for our country by holding a candle in our driveways. Some in dressing gowns and others with Aussie flags gathered […]

Piedras de tropiezo

Liège, Mémorial, from 1986 to 2009

The “Mémorial de Cointe” has been built to celebrate the victory of the Allies in 1918. I often drew this building. I send some sketches : The oldest is from 1986, and I drew the newest today… Each year, at November 11th, we have the possibility to climb up the tower, and to have a […]


Saturday 25th was Anzac Day – Australia’s national war memorial day. One day I would like to get up and join the crowds for the big dawn service in the city… but not this year! So when I saw in our local paper what had taken place at a park in my suburb, I decided […]
