da-eYe wears protective equipment against Covid-19

As you may already know (we mentioned him many times on the Sama Gazette), da-eYe is Max Dana‘s iconic character, and he was born in the mid-Eighties, on the walls of Paris/La Défense in France. da-eYe is facetious and waggish, renowned for his repartee as well as for his witty sense of humour, and his charming and easygoing nature. He’s our guy! Max uses her iconic character to bring awareness to important causes like when he was a barefoot ...


Rats are larking around in Banksy’s bathroom!

You know we love Banksy, and you might even remember (it was almost ten years ago!) when our buddy da-eYe (Max Dana’s facetious and waggish character) was looking for Banksy at the 2011 Oscars. Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, many countries are in lockdown and street artists have now to work inside their home. And Banksy makes no exception, so he worked from home by bringing his outdoor work inside, and it looks like a pack of mischievous rats ...


da-eYe : Easter Egg Head 2012!

We hope you all had a happy Easter! Here we had a very good one, thanks to da-eYe. Like every year, Max Dana organized an egg hunt and da-eYe was invited, of course. And he really made our day. Here is what Max wrote about it on her blog:  da-eYe is a serious guy. You know him well enough now to know he doesn’t like being laughed at. But he always enjoys making jokes at someone else’s expense. So once again, it was too tempting to tease him, I ...


da-eYe celebrates French silent movie The Artist

Last year we shared with you a post by Max Dana on the French silent movie The Artist, directed by Michel Hazanavicius starring Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo. In her post Max wrote: ‘Jean Dujardin won the Cannes Film Festival’s Best Actor Award for his performance and I have heard the film has become the frontrunner to win Best Picture at the 2012 Oscars‘. As an Hollywood’s Golden Age expert, Max had a good intuition about it: The ...
