An interview with the nice poeple at STARTED MAGAZINE:…

"French illustrator and cartoonist Benjamin Basso got his start lettering American comics, but for the past five years he has focused on illustration for MAKMA, a French studio that produces scripts, penciling, inking, coloring, and lettering for comics and manga worldwide. Like many, he enjoys music while he works. He cites Mr. Bungle as one of his inspirations, so it's no surprise that his fearless pencil creates what he calls a "bestiary that comes to life day after day." He is working on a book of "all these critters," which will be published soon."

Artist Feature

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 28, 2011, 12:58 PM
A great idea by :iconblasterkid:

Here are the rules from his journal:

First and most DO have to have premium membership account to participate. You can't post art, and thumbnails in your journal without one. But beyond that: Be one of the first 18 people commenting on this journal entry, and I will add you to the "Featured Artist Spotlight List" in this journal/ For each of the 18 first people answering this journal I will put his/her avatar and the three deviations from his/her gallery on the list that I find appealing and think represent your work well and might bring some new friends your way. IMPORTANT: If you are featured you'll have to do the same in your journal, putting me on the list in the first place slot, and then completing the list with 17 other people who reply to you. The idea of this is not to get a free features, it is to spread art around for everyone.

So comment if you have a Premium Membership! Get some artwork featured, and then share the love in return!

Je vous en reparlerai plus longuement bientôt. En attendant, voici la bande-annonce officielle réalisée par le talentueux mais néanmoins ami Nicolas Giraud d'Elements Films du prochain livre pour enfants que j'ai illustré, avec Benjamin Rivière et Fred Vigneau, des potes du studio MAKMA. Et j'en suis pas peu fier, croyez-moi ! Encore une fois, un énorme merci, Nico !
Ça sort donc le 12 novembre chez Canto Éditions et ce sera un beau bouquin, croyez-moi.

Here is the official trailer made by Nicolas Giraud from Elements Films, of my forthcoming children's book I illustrated, with Benjamin Rivière and Fred Vigneau, from MAKMA studio. I can't tell you how proud I am. And it's coming out on November 12th in France.

Hello everyone!

Quedubo published four of my illustrations on canvas, PVC tarpaulins and paper high quality, all printed in 200 copies, the larger measuring 3 feet !

More info on Quedubo

Quedubo a édité quatre de mes illustrations sur des toiles, des bâches PVC et du papier haut de gamme, le tout tiré à 200 exemplaires.
Et les plus grands formats vont jusqu'à 1m ! Et croyez-moi, ça fait bizarre de voir son travail sur de si grands format, et c'est chouette.

Plus d'infos sur le site Quedubo

A bientôt !
