I'm glad to see that Nantes inspired you. It Was a pleasure to meet you at the Utopiales, my students and I.
It was an immense pleasure too, to hear you about french romantic painters like Bougereau or Dagnan Bouveret ...
Great paintings, great moment,great painter and great man !

GooGoo: the cranes and the canal are real. No one else seemed to notice the giant.

Merci beaucoup, Laurent. I am still in awe of all the amazing artists we met in Nantes, and embarrassed that we didn't know more about them before the event.

Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all?
Or, if he moves, will he fall?
Is he alive or dead?
Has he thoughts within his head?
...
Nobody wants him
He just stares at the world
Planning his vengeance
That he will soon unfurl.

...yeah, I couldn't resist.
