Once again we had an amazing time with 80 artists, we start to be like a big family. This time we gathered in south of France, close to Montpellier. Magic!
I've been invited on Shipsomnia boat in Barcelona, Ibiza & Sète. They created awesome decorations from the trailer I've made last year! There was 7 dance floors on the cruise with over 40 DJ & 2000+ clubbers. We met lots of cool international people, from USA, Europe & Japan.
I'm in Berlin since 2 months now. I took my computers with me so I'm able to work from here.
I also visited a friend in Poland recently. Cool trip!
I am now hosting french live meet-up and interviews the wednesdays & sundays with friends on Youtube.
I made a new workshop at the winter edition of the ArtWeekend organised by Wardenlight studio in front of 60+ artists.
I shared advices, productivity tools, shown the making of my last trailer & live demo of Octane. Since I was prepared, it was better than my first time and the feedback was excellent. Awesome experience.
I was invited to do my first workshop at the "Swiss Salon of Innovation" at Lausanne this Saturday. I presented my work and made some demos with render engine Octane & 7 x 980Ti. It was a bit new to me since it was my first experience but the feedback was good. Next workshop in december!
I will do more 3D animations for clients so I upgraded my system to get faster rendering.

I participated to the ART WEEKEND organised by Bastien Grivet & Jessica Rossier with 60 talented artists in Switzerland. It was so great! I met a lot of new friends to keep in touch. I will do a workshop on Octane Render & 3D environment at the next event in December. Let me know if you want to join, limited seats.
I went in LA for a few weeks to meet people from Insomniac I'm used to work with. I also met new friends and new clients. I discovered on Instagram someone in Hollywood was doing a tattoo with a design I made, so I met him too!
I had the opportunity to visit & show my work to Otoy, creators of Octane Render.
I worked at Insomniac during a week in Beverly Hills. I made a new key visual for DreamState Australia using the HP laptop I received a while ago.
My experience with the HP ZBook G3 was very good because the dedicated GPU was able to handle the full city in the Live Viewer in Octane (faster than I thought), and I had no trouble with big files due to the 32GB RAM. When I had more space, I plugged a 2nd monitor & keyboard to it, and took control of my workstation in Switzerland via TeamViewer when I needed more power for rendering.
And I didn't even mention the weather and food...!
A really nice opportunity was given to me by HP, to work on their new mobile workstation, the Zbook G3.
Looking since a while for a mobile 'solution' to keep me working on my projects while traveling, I was really excited when HP contacted me to take part on their Zbook G3 campaign as an ambassador.
Since I work with 3D softwares and high-res Photoshop files, my requirements are pretty high in terms of RAM and nVidia card(s) in order to continue being productive on my workflow.
I was so glad when I saw how listening they were, trying to really understand my needs to make sure I end up with a product that I like to use - and not a decorative object. The Zbook G3 appears to be both beautiful and powerful.
I will bring the laptop with me during my travel to Los Angeles this summer and create an artwork they'll use for their campaign. Stay tuned on instagram @aivendotnet for more updates about this project.

Thanks a lot to Vera Henggeler! Everyone from HP was VERY kind.
I recently participated to an art exhibition in Zurich with 134 other artists from 18-20th March. It was my first time participating to an event like this and it was an amazing experience. I've met lot of great people and even had the privilege to inspire some of them.
Thanks a lot to Lidia Panio for inviting me!
I had a table of 4x1 meter to display my works & a desk — I've bring my workstation and two monitors to do live demos.
For the record, here are two interviews that I was invited to do.
Nothing transcending but maybe you'd like to watch it, I was pretty noob at it. :P
