The Gladiator Arena at Sunset – Stuck in Customs

The Gladiator Arena at Sunset

Interiew with Fabien Barral

You guys know Fabien, yes? He’s the famous French graphic designer that I somehow convinced to help build this website. It went so well, in fact, that we’ve got a few other secret projects going on together! We cooked up some stuff when I went to go visit him in Nimes earlier this year.

Living Design recently interviewed Fabien all about design, his ideas, his thoughts, and this sort of thing. Go check it out if you want to learn more about Fabien!

Happy New Year!

I’m looking forward to spending this year with you! We’ve got all kinds of great stuff in store for you… I hope today’s photo is a good indication of things to come!

Daily Photo – The Gladiator Arena at Sunset

While visiting Fabien in Nimes, there was a bullfight going on inside this ancient Roman gladiator arena. The further south you go in France, the more likely you are to find the old influence of the Spanish bullfights. It’s pretty violent, yes? Yes. In fact, if you zoom in, you can still see blood that has been smeared across the arena by the smearing-truck.

Once the crowd started to clear out, a perfect sunset settled upon us. It was just Fabien, my wife, and I, and it was a very nice night. After the bullfight, we walked around to take a lot of photos of this amazing evening, Fabien took us to his favorite little secret French restaurant down one of the side streets. Perfect!
