My Bio

I've been drawing since someone had the good idea to put a pencil in my hand. I do comics, illustrations, paintings, I'm also teaching art, I played guitar or bass in many rock bands, I'm writing… I guess all that makes me a kind of an artist? What a good joke.


I'm living in Nîmes, in the south of France.


Favourite Visual Artist
Too many to name only one… Classical art… Franco-Belgian comics, "Ligne claire", US comics…
Favourite Movies
The Good, The Bad, The Ugly… The Night Of The Hunter, The Haunting, Clockwork Orange, Barbarella,… 2001: A Space Odyssey… Italian westerns and yes, Jerry Lewis’ movies!
Favourite TV Shows
Old ones from the 60's like The Avengers (The UK ones!!!), Wild Wild West, The Prisoner, Star Trek, The Invaders… From the 70's like The Persuaders, Space 1999… Some new shows too, except they talk too much and their storylines suck…
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
T.Rex, Stooges, Nikki Sudden, Ramones, Ziggy Bowie, Johnny Thunders, Cramps, Kinks, Flamin' Groovies, Cheap Trick, Chesterfield Kings and a zillion others!
Favourite Books
The last ones I read and the one I am reading right now. Maybe the next one I will read?
Favourite Games
I do not play games, I only play guitar. And bass as well.
Favourite Gaming Platform
Acoustic Ibanez V300 (wood) six strings, Epiphone Sheraton II (Alpine White), Ibanez AEL2012E (Transparent Black Sunburst) twelve strings and Epiphone Thunderbird IV (Vintage Sunburst) bass.
Tools of the Trade
A couple of hands, one pencil, one eraser, one dip pen, one rigger paint brush, a bottle of India ink and tons of white paper sheets!!!…

thanks for the watch

What do you think of my Forgotten Tales idea?

The idea of using forgotten characters is definitively good… but I do not know any of the ones you are listing, probably because of the difference of culture and generations. My favorite US cartoon artists are Chuck Jones, Tex Avery, Wolfgang Reitherman, Don Bluth, Ralph Bakshi… Also Genndy Tartakovsky.

Thank you! Right now, I'm just looking for forgotten and obscure characters to put in the show. Do you have any suggestions?

I know thousands of them. Do you know "Ralph Wolf & Sam Sheepdog" by Chuck Jones? Or "Marc Antony and Pussyfoot"? This is hilarious!!!… But maybe I should advice some French ones: "Space Goofs" or "Oggy and the Cockroaches" by Jean-Yves Raimbaud or "Zig & Sharko" by Olivier Jean-Marie very much in the sale you seem to like…

I'm creating a cartoon. It's called, Forgotten Tales! It's about these forgotten and obscure characters that go on wacky and crazy adventures.

Wait! You’re an adult?
