Paper, Pencils and Patience.

Before I moved in Berlin to embrace a career of Senior Concept Artist, I was making a living as a Comic Book artist. It was almost like having 3 different jobs. I was painting covers regularly, painting sequential (way) less regularly and then finally I was drawing commissions. This was a bit scary since I…

Neonderthal

A few years ago, the company I work for moved and employees had to stay home. We were then tasked to develop IP for the time being. I had this National Geographic magazine about Neanderthal so the idea popped. What if the Neanderthals didn’t vanish? Here’s the story I wrote: VIDEO HOMO SAPIENS – NeonDerthal…

Machines

UFO ROBOT Grendizer (Goldorak in France) was the first anime I saw. Ever since my fascination for futuristic engines kept growing but it’s mostly the logical and realistic mind behind these designs that kept my hunger for that side of my job. So here are a few pieces I did on my spare time inspired…

Dragon Ball Fanart 2

The past year has been quite challenging and left me with a bitter taste but thanks to my friends and family it still ended with a positive note. Talking and playing all things Dragon Ball with Louis, my youngest nephew also revived my need for drawing stuff I like in its most simple way, yup…

Disappointed Dave

I’ve started my illustrator career with comic books. Sequential art is what lead me to draw. I did try to write stories myself several times before but only fooled around, or fooled myself thinking I could do the writing part with no extra effort.   Well each little effort lead to nothing but forgettable scribbles…

Dragon Ball Fan Art

I have a very nice job that keep me busy drawing 8 hours a day, at least. But somehow life events can be challenging and I’ve found myself dried out, out of juice. But there’s nothing as a good old fanart to put me back in the saddle.   This time the task I challenged…

Sneakerhead Episode 2 – The Vandal

I’ve been a long time Adidas fan and kept buying their products for years but I wouldn’t limit myself on other cool shoes from other brands. Last year though, Adidas brought back the Campus, one of my favorite three-striped model in very cool colorways, so much to chew on that I couldn’t see the beauty…

Sneakerhead Episode 1 – The Adidas Gazelle

I was 17 in 1992. Kurt Cobain’s Nirvana shattered hair metal and my world of icons fell apart. I was in my age of doubts and need for answers. The answer was a band called Jamiroquai. You need to understand how it was to find music I would like. I would have to go listen…

Captain Mexico

2012 was a year of lots of challenges for me. Finishing an endless work, moving to another country, leaving my bandmates and friends to embrace a pretty serious shift in my profession. At the same time, I was studying movie posters and started sketching what ending up being a Super Hero wearing a wrestling mask: Captain Mexico….

Jagercaster

I’ve been playing with many different bands through the years since I started playing the guitar, but back in 2009 a short time after I moved in Strasbourg I’ve finally found the right guys to play with. Thierry (guitars), Stephane (vocals), Jerome (bass), Alexis (drums) and last but not least, David (drums). Our music started…

I have the POWER!!!

1987 was a busy year for Ibanez. Steve Vai’s Jem destroyed the pointy guitar competition, followed by the RG550, its less expensive sister, as part of the renewed Roadstar series. The Radius, the Saber and the Power models were part of the Roadstar Pro line, offering a broader range of body types, material and neck shapes….

Ibanez Jem FP 1988

Back in 1990, my elder sister offered a subscription to a magazine of choice and my brother and I picked “Guitare & Claviers”, a french magazine that kept us posted about everything concerning this wonderful instrument, the guitar. Each issue had at least an Ibanez ad with Steve Vai on it posing as the ultimate guitar…
