Paper Pierre!

"I fell in love with Renaissance painters, especially Hans Holbein, he's my god! In fact I'm interest by all kind of antique art." This first Qompendium Questionnaire Session is with Pierre Vanni, a french designer from Toulouse, who experiments with graphic design, paper and motion picture in a refreshing, yet naive way, recently adorning a New York Times cover with his work.
