My Bio

I'm a storyboard artist with 2D animation background and with a childhood dream of doing comics. Currently I do storyboards for video games, helping find creative approaches to weave the right story-driven emotions within an interactive context. Beside spewing words to make what I do seem complex, my visual influences are of the comic book-animation-manga-gaming variety with interests in most visual storytelling fields including movies, tv, animation, video games, comics, illustration and anything on the side. Some of the strengths I often hear about my work is that it's expressive, dynamic, hits humor beats and tone right and it's just really fun. Does this sound like I was bragging? Please don't tell me this is bragging; I don't like to br--... Currently my personal goals are to slow down to improve on visual polish of my works, FINALLY find a style I want to stick with and explore, strike a healthier lifestyle balance with my work-related hobbies, and to just enjoy and appreciate the ride.


Current job : Storyboard Artist at Eidos Montréal - Square Enix

Storyboards so far: Undisclosed upcoming release; Shadow of the Tomb Raider; Rise of the Tomb Raider ; Deus Ex : Mankind Divided; Deconstructed; How It's Made; cancelled Bubble Gum Crisis live action film; Storm Hawks; Pérusse Cité (on one episode); a bunch of Nestlé cereal commercials for Pascal Blais; SuperBook; and more.

Current Residence: Canada (Montreal,Quebec)

Love it

Love your artworks!!! incredible coloring and sexy lineart ;P

Thanks a lot! : D

Ahoy-hoy :ahoy: I came across your amazing artwork while browsing :wow: Fantastic content, I must say! Keep up the great work :clap:


Say...did you ever decide on accepting commissions? :-? I read an old journal of yours (from a couple years ago) regarding the topic. Would you be willing to accept one? If so, what are your rates and restrictions? Feel free to note :note: or DM me with all the details using this new cockamamie ”chat” feature. Either way is fine with me :shrug: Have a pleasant day/afternoon/evening :bye:

I'm glad to hear of your continued interest! I'm slowly thinking doing commissions might not be a bad idea after all but I'm not quite there yet. I'm very sorry. No ETA in mind; maybe I'll open up to extra activities once I finish going through those Comikx pages.

Fair enough :nod: I can respect that! Thanks for the prompt response :salute:

Really great page, my man. Your folio is exactly what I think of when I see the term "professional cartoonist". Excellent use of expression, pose and color--identifiable style, but also dynamic without being locked into a particular monocular type of character build.

Inspirational stuff, dude.
