My Bio
I have been drawing since I was 6 years old. I've always wanted to be an illustrator and a comic artist. But sometimes, life chooses for you ;) So I became a webdesigner and a graphic artist and I used to draw in my free time to become better and try to be a pro. I founded my own webagency where I worked for a few years.
Now, years have passed and my dream has become a reality : I'm an illustrator for several publishers in various countries :D
However, I'm still a graphic artist/webdesigner. I love these jobs. I don't want to do more things (even if I'm curious of everything). Too many hats could dilute skills ^^.
Now I would like to work in another country. A place where I can speak English (because I love speaking English) ;)

Some Publishers :
- Random House (US)
- L'atalante (France)
- Bragelonne (France)
- Opointzero (Belgium)
- Voy'el (France)
- Black Coat Press (US)
- Couleur dite/parole peinte (France)
- (More to come when books will be in stores)

What can I say ? I don't see. If you have any question, don't hesitate to contact me.

FRENCH VERSION (english is below)
Ceci est un peu le "petit guide" qui préside à mon travail personnel. Il va de soi que dans le cadre de projets pour des clients, d'autres règles s'imposent.

Le dessin et le graphisme m'ont toujours fascinés. Gamin, je pourrissais les bandes dessinées de mes parents de croquis pour le moins... abstraits et perfectibles.
Depuis je n'ai cessé d'explorer et de travailler toutes les techniques que j'ai eu l'occasion d'essayer ; dessin, lithographie, gravure, infographie, photo, linogravure, écriture, typographie...
Sans pour autant devenir un maître dans toutes ces disciplines, j'y ai puisé mon inspiration pour l'image sous toutes ses formes.
Une fois "l'image" (quelle qu'elle soit) passée par le filtre de la perception et de l'imagination de chacun, il est possible de créer des variantes, des nuances, des déclinaisons... Sans doute est-ce la meilleure idée que l'on puisse se faire de l'infini.

Parfois je me demande ce que ça pourrait donner si je passais le test de Rorschach.
Depuis toujours je vois des formes hallucinantes dans les nuages. Je regarde le sable et imagine des cités oubliées, ce que ça a pu être avant de devenir du sable, ce que ça deviendra dans plusieurs millénaires. Qu'est-ce que qui se passe lorsqu'un enfant y façonne un château à coups de pelle et de seau...
Est-ce que des peuples ou des civilisations microscopiques s'effondrent et se créent à la façon de fourmilières imperceptibles à l'oeil ?
C'est pareil pour tout, plantes, bois, métaux, asphalte, peinture, rouille, etc. Tout est jeu de textures, de lumières et de couleurs, une myriade de langages et de messages adressés aux yeux qui savent les écouter.
D'une certaine façon, tout ce que nous voyons est comme une symphonie, que certains perçoivent plus ou moins. Cette immense chorale d'effets visuels avait commencé bien avant notre apparition et se poursuivra bien après que toute vie ait disparu. Cependant, il me semble que les humains pourraient être d'excellents interlocuteurs de cette musique s'ils se donnaient la peine d'écouter et de voir...
Les éléments ne sont pas seulement tordus et pliés à nos volontés pour nos petits besoins terrestres. Ils ont une âme, une personnalité, une expressivité...
Dans mon travail, je tente de me familiariser avec ce langage. Je pratique couramment mais il n'y a pas de pierre de rosette sur laquelle se baser, juste des créations... Un concert de travaux de milliers d'artistes, d'artisans d'art qui sont comme autant d'interprétations de ces langages... et qui deviennent mes sources d'inspiration...
Je mêle divers éléments (sable, pain, feuilles, écorce...). Ensuite tout cela passe au filtre de mon imaginaire et de diverses techniques (photo, dessin, infographie...) pour tenter de faire émerger des sensations, des émotions, de raconter des histoires ou des contes...
Et quand une personne apprécie un de mes travaux, alors c'est que je suis parvenu à maîtriser un de ces langages universels, au moins un bref instant. Et alors il est temps de se remettre à l'ouvrage...

ENGLISH VERSION (It's hard to explain in english but I try :D)
This is a little "short guide" that governs my personal work. It goes without saying that when I work for clients, I follow their rules.

The design and graphic design have always fascinated me. Kid, I ruined the comics of my parents with sketches which were, to be gentle... abstracts and perfectibles.
Since then I have been exploring and working with all the techniques that I had the opportunity to try, drawing, lithography, engraving, graphic design, photography, linocut, writing, typography...
Without becoming a master in all these disciplines, I found my inspiration for the image in all its forms.
Once the "image" (whatever that is) passed through the filter of perception and imagination of everyone, it is possible to create variations, nuances and variations... Without doubt this is the best idea that we can get of infinity.

Sometimes I wonder what would have been my results if I took the Rorschach test.
Since forever I see incredible shapes in the clouds. I look at the sand and I imagine forgotten cities, what it could have been before becoming sand, that it will become in several millennia. What happens when a child builds a castle with a shovel and bucket...
Do microscopic peoples or civilizations collapse and are created like anthills imperceptible to the eye?

That's the same for all plants, wood, metal, asphalt, paint, rust, etc.. Everything is game textures, lights and colors, a myriad of languages and messages for eyes that know how to "listen".
In a sense, everything we see is like a symphony, some see more or less. This huge choir of visual effects began a long time before our appearance and will continue after all life will be gone. However, it seems to me that humans could be excellent interlocutors of this music if they bothered to listen and see... The elements are not only twisted and bent to our will for our little earthly needs. They have a soul, a personality, an expression...

In my work I try to learn this language. I currently practice but there is no Rosetta stone on which to base, just creations... A concert of works of thousands of artists, craftspeople are as many interpretations of these languages ... and they become my inspiration...

I mix various elements (sand, bread, eggs, vegetables, leaves, bark...). Then it all goes through the filter of my imagination and a variety of techniques (photography, drawing, computer graphics...) in an attempt to bring out feelings, emotions, telling stories or tales...

And when a person likes one of my pieces of work, then it is that I managed to master one of those universal languages, at least briefly. And then it's time to get back to my pencils...

Thank you very much for the watch!:D

FYI... The "person" with the ID dujoel who faved your work is a bot, one that hijacks unused IDs and adds a porn link to the victim account's About section (some of the links added aren't visible except in the phone app) For more info please see this journal by :iconcolonel-knight-rider:

Thank you, and have a great day!

Yes, I saw that. I hope that DA will find a way to fight these fake accounts...

Me too. They could at least let the account owners know, if they can find them, and then if no response deactivate the accounts, or something like that.

Happy new year to you ;)
Many thanks ;)
